Feeling is Believing.
Started to create jobs for stay-at-home mothers in the late 1980s, Camille Beckman was founded by Susan Camille, an artist who grew up in rural Idaho. The daughter of an agriculture teacher, she became immersed in the studies of flowers, herbs and perfume at a young age. After moving to Europe and living as a painter and potter in her 20s, Susan came back to Idaho with a vision for a family company that could benefit women while creating a romantic, beautiful experience for customers. Her husband Foad, a geologist and full time engineer from Iran, was a wise and reserved man, and the two worked tirelessly to create, promote and sell her initial products. Inspired by her aunt, Susan launched her first creams and lotion in 1989. Traveling to craft shows and tradeshows across the US, her true success came as people tried the cream. They would put a drop on their hands and come back an hour later completely amazed at how their skin felt and how quickly it had transformed.
The company grew from Susan's small bungalow to a warehouse space. As a female entrepreneur in the 90’s, Susan fought to remain true to her vision. Rather than molding her company to be driven by profit, she implemented principles grounded in compassion. She allowed team members to bring their children to work, built a factory in Idaho while others moved overseas, said no to outside investors and hired more team members, many who are still with us today. Susan became known as a job provider in the community, and Camille Beckman as a brand you could count on. Having a young daughter, Susan felt compelled to provide and create opportunities for other children around the world. Realizing her business could be a tool for social change, the Camille Beckman Foundation was realized in 1995. Throughout the years the foundation has contributed to over 120 organizations, building the foundations of tomorrow for our youth and fellow mankind.
In 1994, Foad left his career as an engineer to bring his expertise in leadership and finance to the team, creating a truly tight-knit, family operation. Susan’s daughter Roshan, who grew up at the company’s side, joined the company full-time in 2013 as head of the marketing and product development team and her husband Danish handles the fast-growing digital side of the company. In reality, everyone at Camille Beckman is family. Every individual here plays a part in bringing you the finest body care on the market. We are grateful the added cost of doing business the right way has paid off; Camille Beckman was named the #1 personal care line in the gift industry 18 years in a row and continues to receive countless 5 star reviews from customers and industry influencers alike.
From initial inception to final creation, today's products are all made at our factory in Eagle, Idaho. Built by the Roghani's and Susan's brother Paul in 2000, and the Camille Beckman factory is located a large plot of unsprayed, energy charged land with an artesian well. With skylights, a water filtration and recycling plant, and other energy saving and amplifying creations, the Camille Beckman factory was the first green building in Idaho and only uses the power of five households despite its size and output. Dedicated to nurturing our little piece of this planet, our factory is surrounded by orchards, vegetable gardens, our sister company Chateau des Fleurs and the beautiful Boise River.
We view our products as a labor of love, putting immense creativity and research into each project. From our focus on local suppliers and independent retailers to our ingredients and value for human capital, we are committed to consciously creating the positive changes we wish to see in the world.
