Come join our Costa Brazil team. We are on a mission to create products that are beneficial to the body and the spirit-as well as the earth.

We are a clean, luxury concept created by Francisco Costa to capture the rich, natural essence of his native land.

We are proud to partner with international organizations that work to protect our environment through innovative global initiatives. We are new to Amyris and in growth mode.
