Founder Jackie Granchamps first made nontoxic skincare as holiday gifts in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that she thought, I could do this for a living. Raised in Haitian culture, the use of medicinal herbs is woven into the fabric of Granchamps' daily life. She leveraged her knowledge of plants and essences into each product formula so that every ingredient serves a specific purpose.
After working as a creative marketing and project manager for a decade, Granchamps soft-launched Cecile’s Bath & Body with its first products in the spring of 2014 following two years of developing original formulas designed to combat dry skin conditions, brighten the complexion and fight the hyperpigmentation common in melanin-rich skin.
The brand gained fans for its raw, organic ingredients and luxurious feel while rolling out limited products seasonally, and refining best sellers based on live-market feedback. The result is a range of elevated skincare staples that allow individuals to take care of themselves in a way that feels natural and habitually luxurious.
Cecile’s and its founder have been featured in numerous publications in print and television including Brit + Co., The New York Times, CBS News NY, and Daily Mail TV, and have participated in numerous panel discussions and interviews surrounding entrepreneurship. In 2021, Cecile’s Bath & Body was featured in a short film from T-Mobile Magenta Edge where Granchamps discusses her entrepreneurial journey and the role that having a personal connection with customers takes in shaping her business.
Even though Granchamps has experienced plenty of obstacles on the way to growth she encourages founders to work toward their dreams. “Every step you take can push you in the direction of your dreams," she said. "Go for it. Listen to your intuition and leap.”
A career marketer, she is skilled in developing and executing strategic creative development, multichannel marketing, and communication for integrated campaigns. A natural storyteller with a strong aesthetic sense, she understands how to impact the big picture through the smallest details to present beautiful, clear, and effective work.
