Recamier S.A.

Profile video

Recamier was founded as a beauty salon in 1947 by Edmond Bougaud, a French immigrant. In 1960, he decided to transform Recamier into a beauty products company. After Edmond’s unexpected and sudden death, his son, Georges Bougaud, was appointed President in 1975, having just completed his first year at university.

Georges started working with an exceptional team to save the company from failure and to turn it into a successful business with a presence in Latin America, the Caribbean and the US. Today, Recamier competes with top beauty corporations in these markets.
