That's not a problem. For the "does this string match any in this array"
case, use `Array#some`:

const stringOne = "Matheus";
const manyStrings = ['robert', 'lucas', 'matheus'];
if (manyStrings.some(s => s.localeCompare(stringOne, undefined,
{sensitivity: "base"}) == 0)) {
    // Yes, it was found

(`.localeCompare(stringOne, undefined, {sensitivity: "base"})` **is**
fairly verbose, so I'd probably have a utility function for it.)

There's not all that much in it, doing the loop within the standard API
function vs. outside it. If it's a hotspot for execution, it'll get
aggressively optimized either way. If it isn't, you don't care.
