Dr. Sofia Vieira
Sofia Vieira graduated in chemical engineering at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto. She also did a number of cosmetic courses and in 2013, being a vegan herself, she created the brand Vegan Cosmetics that has just started a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of launching the various prototypes that has developed so far. The brand stands out for being completely vegan – none of the products have animal ingredients or are tested on animals, and also for being produced with ingredients from organic farming.
“The concern for animal welfare always accompanied me and I felt the need to materialize this in a practical solution.” It includes already a diversified range of personal hygiene products, such as solid shampoos, hair conditioners, facial and body lotions, soaps, exfoliants, deodorants, lip balms, amongst others.
