Use it combined with its fellow Rose Amélie hand cream, and indulge in its unique scent, leaving your skin soft and delicately perfumed. Irresistible! Normal skin.
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. As we want to share with you the special parts of our heritage and intimate history, we add it to our store so we could share in Coimbra and through the world the memories of the draws of our grandmothers, the smells of their embraces, the memories that we can keep sharing by the smells and touch.
