about us

Bacana Skincare is a natural, vegan and cruelty free beauty brand based in Berlin. We stem from the desire to share the beauty secrets from Brazil, a country with a high variety of natural and effective ingredients. Our unique formulas combine the ancient knowledge of the Amazon rainforest tribes with the modern scientific breakthroughs in natural beauty technology.

Bacana means “nice”, “good”, “great”

In Brazilian Portuguese, the word Bacana means “nice”, “good”, “great”. We believe we all should feel that way about ourselves. Our mission is to create highly-effective natural, toxin-free, vegan, freshly made, plant-based products. To your daily skincare routine, we carefully select the finest ingredients from the rainforest for their purity, sustainability and skin benefits.

Roots from Brazil, made in Berlin

We are a skincare brand which unites the German efficiency and the Brazilian diversity to create unique beauty products.

Bacana is an invitation to discover a natural way of taking care of yourself.

Bacana we love nature 520

From the creation up to the production, we do everything by ourselves. This is how we guaranty the best quality, by knowing everything about what we are doing.

We use science to create effective products

All our products are developed from scratch and handmade in Berlin. Afterwards, we send them to be microbiological and dermatological tested in specialized laboratories. Through a strict code of ethics, we also purchase our natural and non-toxic ingredients from suppliers which share the same principles we do.

We know there are ways to bring back the rainforest while improving the livelihoods of people.
These green ways are more than sustainable, they’re regenerative.

We respect the nature

To fight climate change, we decided to act and support those who stand for the Amazon rainforest. Over a decade, Camino Verde developed their expertise to bring back the rainforest while improving the livelihoods of people of Amazon.

On their record : 25,000 trees planted representing 400 species of trees; over 20 hectares (50 acres) reforested; over 250 acres (100 hectares) of primary rainforest were protect and every year their nurseries produce 20,000 tree seedlings and over a hundred species each year.

That’s why we donate 2% of our revenues to this NGO to restore the rainforest. The green ways they do it are more than sustainable, they’re regenerative.

Founder Bacana Skincare success women CEO

“I want to inspire people to discover & love a natural way of taking care of themselves.”

Through cosmetics, I discovered a different way of sharing love and admiration of my homeland´s biodiversity, Brazil.

One day, I decided to leave my beloved country, where I was Pharmacist. In 2013, I went to France to learn how to develop cosmetics. Since then, I obtained a Master’s degree in Cosmetic Chemistry, worked in different companies and now I live in Berlin.

With Bacana, I want to make you discover the secrets from Brazil and the Amazon rainforest. To create my formulas, I was inspired by tradition and beauty ingredients from my homeland. That being said, I hope you will find interesting insights with Bacana, and enjoy using our tropical skincare products as much as I love developing them!
