Granado, Brazil’s oldest pharmacy, first opened its doors in 1870 in Rio de Janeiro. The owner, José Antonio Coxito Granado, produced remedies, cosmetics and other products made from plants, herbs and native flowers of Teresópolis, a mountainous region near Rio de Janeiro, where he had a small farm. The pharmacy expanded quickly and the first Granado store opened in 1917 in the heart of Rio de Janeiro, in front of the Imperial Palace, where it is still in operation today. 

In 1994, English entrepreneur Christopher Freeman acquired Granado from the last remaining member of the Granado family, leading the company through a process of simultaneous modernization and reconnection with its traditions.

In 2013, at the invitation of the prestigious Parisian department store Le Bon Marche Rive Gauche, Granado entered the European market. With a prominent, personalized corner in the world’s most exclusive and unique luxury flagship store of the world, the brand gained instant visibility amongst the select clientele of the Bon Marche without compromising its niche image. Granado France, the first subsidiary of the company in Europe, was created in the same year in order to attend to premium boutiques, such as Eva Villar, Aegon & Aegon, Ines de la Fressange, the Webster, etc. who had all discovered the brand through the Bon Marche and were interested in including it in their portfolio.In 2017, Granado opened its first store in Lisbon, Portugal and its flagship store in Paris.
