This is one brand that goes way back — all the way to the 19th century, in fact. In 1838, Dr. Galen Hunter founded the Village Apothecary Shop in New York City and began dispensing remedies, including his first product, the skin-saving Rose Wonder Cold Cream. A few decades later, his employee Clarence Otis Bigelow took over the pharmacy and renamed it C.O. BIGELOW. Since then, the apothecary-turned-personal care line has gained legions of celebrity fans. Nowadays, it continues to serve customers in its flagship NYC store and has developed its own range of wholesome products.
Proven products with a rich heritage. C.O. BIGELOW's collection has stood the test of time. By combining centuries of expertise with cutting edge research and fresh, natural ingredients, these products work wonders on face, body, and hair.
Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, and Eleanor Roosevelt all visited the original C.O. BIGELOW pharmacy.
We also love the Mentha Lip Shine for healing chapped lips year-round. Once exclusive to the poshest hotels, the zesty Lavender & Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner have become so popular that they’ve joined the retail roster.
