Benamôr was founded in 1925 in Lisbon by a mysterious apothecary who created miraculous ointments in his laboratory at Campo Grande nº189. His handmade Beauty Recipes were based on unique perfumes and natural ingredients grown under the sun of Portugal : lemon, rose, aloe Vera or almond oil. Packed in adorable Art Deco tubes, it was an instant hit, and all Lisbon Belles were addicts, including Queen Amélie herself.
Benamôr gave birth to some of Portugal’s cult beauty recipes, such as Créme de Rosto, the miracle face cream –which rose extract gives woman an instant glow- and remains unchanged until now. Alantoíne handcream and Bronzaline were also amongst its most sought after creations.
Today, Benamôr is still one of Portugal’s most beloved beauty brands spreading its delicious beauty recipes around the world.
