Meet Granado, Brazil's Best Kept Beauty Secret
Brazil is fast becoming the new beauty capital of the world, and its most underrated export – Granado – has just landed exclusively in Liberty’s beauty hall
Brazil has already brought us cult favourites like Sol de Janeiro’s joyous Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and Costa Brazil’s decadent Sol Sunlight Body Oil, but Granado is the new-to-the-UK brand reaffirming the country's place on the beauty map – and you’ll find the best Granado products here, exclusively at Liberty.
As Brazil’s oldest pharmacy, Granado first made its name producing effective beauty remedies using the native plants, herbs and flowers of Teresópolis, a mountainous region on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, where owner José Antonio Coxito Granado owned a small farm. A magical apothecary bound in rich heritage, its tried-and-tested formulas have been a mainstay in Brazilian bathrooms ever since, transforming the simplest of moments, such as washing your hands or taking a bath, into decadent mood-boosting rituals with serious results.
“We’re so excited that our beauty hall is Granado’s first and only home here in the UK. As Brazil’s oldest pharmacy brand, Granado brings a long heritage to Liberty, through its beautiful formulas and striking packaging.”
If you’re the type of beauty connoisseur who's known to lug suitcases full of French pharmacy remedies back from Paris, or the kind that trawls the internet in the search of the latest K-Beauty innovations, thankfully getting your fill of Brazilian beauty is made far easier now that Granado has made Liberty its official UK homestead. Ready to add a touch of Brazilian beauty to your bathroom cabinet? Here are the best Granado products to add to basket now.
