"I respect L'Oreal, but they are a huge corporation," he added.

The Body Shop, founded by the late Dame Anita in 1976, was a pioneer in using natural ingredients for its beauty products.

  • The Body Shop: A short history

Mr Leal said: "Natura is a company that was born in the same way of The Body Shop almost at the same time.

"And we have this connection with sustainability, with ingredients from the Amazon, and we need a platform to go abroad."

Natura started in 1969 and has since grown into one of Latin America's biggest cosmetics groups.

Its success is based on a vast network of sales consultants and a culture of using local communities to source ingredients from the Amazon in a sustainable way.

The acquisition was announced in June and concluded last week.

The deal turns Natura into a global player, buying The Body Shop's 3,200 shops in 66 countries and 18,000 workers. In 2013, it also purchased Australian group Aesop.

The Unsettling Truth About Blowing Out Candles on Cake

  The Unsettling Truth About Blowing Out Candles on Cake “Bacterial Transfer Associated with Blowing Out Candles on a Birthday Cake,” reads the title of a recent study out of the Journal of Food Research. That’s quite a headline! The study presented a somewhat unsurprising finding: Saliva travels, so, naturally, the seemingly benign act of blowing out candles on a birthday cake involves the transmission of bacteria. 12 Beautiful Cake Stands to Show Off Your Instagram-Worthy Creations by Hana Asbrink To determine how much, exactly, bacteria gets transferred in this process, the researchers from Clemson University constructed a mock cake and simulated a meal-dessert sequence with their 11 test subjects, replicated 3 times on separate days. Their methodology involved taking a sheet of foil and cutting it in the shape of a circle, placing that foil on a Styrofoam disk, and enveloping it in a thin layer of Betty Crocker's Rich & Creamy Vanilla frosting. The researchers then planted 17 candles, evenly spaced, into the Styrofoam, careful to permeate both the icing and foil layers. Each subject then smelled and consumed a slice of hot, piping pizza, meant to emulate a meal-dessert sequence. After lighting the candles on the mock cake, researchers asked subjects to blow until they doused the tiny flames. This was followed, of course, by a control scenario, which replicated the procedure except for the final step: The candles weren’t blown out.

The new owners of UK cosmetics chain The Body Shop have said they plan to keep the legacy of founder Dame Anita Roddick alive as they look to revive the company. Brazilian group Natura bought The Body Shop from L’Oreal for an estimated 1 billion euros (.1bn; £880m).

L'Oreal bought The Body Shop from its original owners back in 2006, when the company was at its height.

But recently the brand has seen a drop in sales, with other competitors increasing their market share.

'Protect the Amazon'

Mr Leal told the BBC the deal is also a strategy for Natura to reduce its risks, as most of its sales are done in Latin America, where many countries have recently experienced recession, particularly Brazil.

By expanding its operations to Europe the group will be less exposed to the problems of the Brazilian economy.

The co-chairman of Natura also criticised Brazil for its mismanagement of resources in the Amazon, saying the country is not wisely using its natural wealth.

Brazil's President Michel Temer recently issued a decree to open up parts of the forest to mining activities. The decision has been suspended and is under review, after public outcry against the measure.

We’re in Love with This Refreshingly Low-Tech Stovetop Waffle Iron

  We’re in Love with This Refreshingly Low-Tech Stovetop Waffle Iron On the list of weekend pleasures, good waffles rank right up there with strong coffee and perfectly rumpled linen sheets. You can enjoy them the traditional way, topped with fresh fruit and a generous drizzle of maple syrup, or a savory version, studded with chives and hunks of assertive cheddar cheese (my family’s favorite). No matter how you waffle, keeping it simple is best. In this case, we’re taking it old school with our Shop’s Stovetop Belgian Waffle Iron. Made of cast aluminum with a nonstick surface, this handy tool will quickly become your weekend warrior companion. Load it up with your favorite batter (plenty of options below), place it on the stovetop to cook, flip and repeat, and remove at your preferred level of crispness. When you're done, give it a quick rinse and store it away for the following weekend. See the waffle iron in action here: The Belgian waffle maker's larger grooves ensure ample crannies for all your toppings to seep into. We love this spicy maple syrup or a good berry compote, but go wild with freshly whipped cream or better yet, scoops of cold ice cream with warm homemade chocolate syrup.

Brazilian mine in the Amazon rainforest: Mr Leal says Brazil needs a © AFP Mr Leal says Brazil needs a "deep dialogue" about mining in the Amazon

Mr Leal, who ran for vice-president of Brazil in 2010 as part of the Green Party, said the country should reconsider its economic activities in the rainforest.

"I don't think the Amazon is a place to do agriculture. You should use the already devastated areas for that.

"On mining, Brazil needs mining for sure, but you should really have a deep dialogue with society to establish the right rules to use the Amazon for those activities," he said.
