About the Webinar

Brazil has the most biodiversity of any country in the world due to its six varied biomes: Amazonia, Pantanal, Cerrado, Caatinga, Pampa, and Mata Atlantica. Hundreds of natural ingredients are sourced in Brazil from these diverse biomes which are used by the cosmetic industry. In 2001, Brazil, as a signatory to the Nagoya Protocol, issued regulations for the protection and sustainable exploration of its irreplacable genetic heritage.

This presentation will explain the most current regulations to be followed in order to access the biodiversity of Brazil's biomes.
