In 1930, Portuguese cousins Antonio and Mario Santiago founded Phebo in Belém, a city in the heart of the Amazon region. With the dream of creating a Brazilian soap of the finest international quality, the cousins delved deep into Brazils natural essences and created the perfect formula.


Phebos famous oval, transparent, dark soap quickly became a staple in the homes of millions of Brazilians.

The Santiago cousins created striking, original products that elevated Phebo to a nationally successful brand, cherished by generations. Today the Perfumery, with its wide range of sophisticated and innovative fragrances, is synonymous with luxury, glamour and fashion.
