Study of nature’s elements
Investigating the natural cycles of each raw material, I discovered the best way to extract and manipulate the colors of organic paints. Fruits, flowers, roots, seeds and leaves - all with their own peculiarities.
Have you ever heard of the antibacterial properties of turmeric, for example? And the cocoa polyphenols that are good for the skin? In addition to avoiding toxic components and heavy metals.
There are many benefits linked to health and well-being!
Chemical laboratory analysis
My paints have been continuously developed for about 10 years.
Since 2016 I have been performing laboratory analyses of microbiological incidence; paint synthesis studies; stability assessments; analysis of color changes; photo and thermodegradation analyses, as well as possible degradation processes in materials.
I am a partner of the Microbial Biotechnology Laboratory (Labim), the Chemistry Institute / UFRJ, the Microbiological Control Laboratory (LACMAC), in addition to the Faculty of Pharmacy / UFRJ.
In 2016 I joined the Coppe Business Incubator - UFRJ, located in the Technological Park of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. In the same year I won the National Biodiversity Challenge promoted by Fundação Grupo Boticário, in partnership with Anprotec.
In 2018 I was 1st place in the acceleration program “Shell Iniciativa Jovem” and won the “Sustainable Enterprise” seal. I was ranked 3rd as the most attractive startup in Brazil in the "Materials" category by Ranking 100 Open Startups.
And in 2019 I was part of the TOP10 of "Biotechnology" companies.
In 2019, my paints were patented and in the same year I was mentioned in a municipal educational book for teachers, as a suggestion for a creative and healthy activity for Elementary School students :)
