Marcelle, an all-Canadian leading cosmetic brand and part of Groupe Marcelle, the largest cosmetic manufacturer in Canada is proud to launch the brand’s newly revamped website: Marcelle.com.

It also has full e-commerce capability making it easier to access Marcelle products than ever before.

Available online and at stores across Canada, Marcelle’s extensive collection of skincare and beauty products are affordable and highly effective, innovative products that are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and safe for even the most sensitive skin.

The Marcelle Beauty Without Compromise promise is to never compromise on the gentleness of ingredients, the quality of products, or the effectiveness of formulas. Beauty Without Compromise means you can trust what you choose to put on your skin, helping you feel good about yourself from the inside out.

With a history of 145 years of beauty you can trust, Marcelle has always delivered safe, quality products.

At Marcelle, every step of every process is filtered through these time-tested pillars.

Harnessing the innovation of science to inform rigorous clinical and in-use testing, Marcelle delivers some of the safest products on the market for your skin, ensuring products are powerfully effective while remaining simple and skin-friendly.
