Amazonia Nutrients finds perfect Harmony in sustainable packaging

Amazonia Nutrients Inc. haircare products are free of parabens, colorants and artificial fragrances. Instead, the haircare product line uses natural ingredients native to the world's largest rainforest. Amazonia Nutrients says that it also contributes a portion of its revenues to The Nature Conservancy whose mission is to preserve plants, animals and the natural communities that represent the diversity of life on earth.

MeadWestvaco's Calmar ( Harmony polypropylene pumps are used to top all of the shampoos, conditioners and detangler containers; dispensing pumps from Seaquist Perfect Dispensing ( are used to top the hair serum containers.
