is a very important year for Surya Brasil. We first came to the USA in 1997
with only our Henna Cream in just a few colors... after a lot of hard work, now in 2017 we have over 100 different products in a broad product line ranging from hair color, to hair care, to skin care, and even clothing and jewelry supporting our non-profit partners in Brazil.
We are very grateful for everyone's support over the past 20 years, and to celebrate we hosted a party at our HQ in New Hyde Park last week. We got together with customers, media, friends, and staff for an amazing celebration of our 20 years of continued success in the USA. The celebration included a vegan lunch provided by Candle 79
and watercolor paintings created by our artist Nana Indigo
, which could be taken home. The main highlight of the event was the unveiling of our new mural on the front of our building also painted by Nana
. The painting shows Gaia, the goddess who represents Mother Earth, and (our logo) Surya, the god that represents the Sun, with Surya illuminating and protecting Gaia and all living creatures, in total harmony with the company's commitment to the environment and respect for life.
We also had live music, massages, and amazing media coverage. It was a great event that was enjoyed by all. We would like to Thank each and everyone of you for contributing to Surya Brasil's success for the past 20 years! It would not be possible without you! Check the pictures below!
