MATERIAL EVENT
Natura Cosméticos S.A. ("Natura" or "Company") hereby informs its shareholders and
the market, pursuant to the provisions of CVM Instruction No. 358/2002, issued by the
Brazilian Securities Commission (Comissão de Valores Mobiliários ­ CVM), that on
this date, Natura entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire, subject to
closing conditions, 65% of Emeis Holdings Pty Ltd., an Australian-based producer of
premium cosmetics and beauty products operating under the brand name "Aesop" in
Australia, Asia, Europe and North America. Natura has agreed to a purchase price of
AU$68.25 million, subject to certain purchase price adjustments. Natura anticipates the
transaction will close on or before April 30, 2013, and will be financed with cash.

As required by Article 256, I, of the Brazilian Corporations Law, Natura will in due
course call a Shareholders' Meeting to ratify the acquisition. An appraisal report is
currently being prepared, and Company's shareholders will be informed, at the
occasion, whether the price supersedes or not 1.5 times the highest of the amounts
referred to in Article 256, II, for the purposes of paragraph 2 thereof.

This transaction provides Natura with access to a powerful global brand and product
offering supported by unique and compelling signature stores. Natura and Emeis
Holdings/Aesop will continue to operate independently, but both organizations will be
committed to sharing competencies and regional expertise.
