In 2009, data published in the electronic journal Fator Brasil described Brazilian consumption habits and behavior during the 2008 and early 2009 financial crisis.

The results showed that spending on beauty and health suffered little impact during the crisis, vacillating from 49% in 2008, to 51%, in 2009¹.
