Granado was founded in 1870 by Portuguese José Antonio Coxito Granado.
The company began by creating remedies from plants, herbs and flowers native to Teresópolis, a mountainous region of Rio de Janeiro, home to Jose Granado. In addition to these medicinal products, Granado imported products from Europe and adapted their formulas to the standards and needs of Brazilians.
Throughout these years, the tradition of quality products with plant origins and proven effectiveness remained. Recognized throughout the country, Granado is firmly placed in the Brazilian cosmetics market as an example of success, strength and steady growth.
