Caudalie formulates beauty products for all those don't want to choose between effectiveness and naturalness, between luxury and ecology. Caudalie's committment is to use the most natural ingredients in particular natural active ingredients that respect the environment and are biodegradable, free from toxins such as parabens, SLS, mineral oils and phthalates, and also free from animal ingredients.
Caudalie: Beauty from the Vine
In 1995, Caudalie was born from a major scientific innovation: an exclusive patent on the extraction and stabilization of grape-seed polyphenols, the fruit of our collaboration with Professor Vercauteren, a world-renowned specialist in polyphenols. Caudalie strictly formulates its products with NO parabens, phenoxyethanol, SLS, mineral oils or colourings and never contain animal ingredients.
It was a chance meeting in 1993 that inspired the launch of Caudalie. Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas received a visit at their family's vineyard from pharmacy professor, Dr. Vercauteren. He revealed to them the extraordinary antioxidant power of the discarded debris of their grape harvest. Research ensued and the first polyphenol-based solutions were launched in 1995. These pioneers of natural anti-ageing now offer fragrance, sun, skin and body care blends, closing the gap between natural and ultra-effective skincare.
Caudalie is the first to harness and patent the extraordinary anti-ageing prowess of a vineyard's crop, in technologically advanced skincare. All derived from grapes, vines, leaves and seeds, natural molecules fight the signs of ageing - polyphenols provide a staggering 100% free radical protection, resveratrol boosts collagen, and vinifine brightens skintone. Since 2006, the entire collection has been paraben-free, and despite Mathilde’s emphasis on the use of ecologically and environmentally sound materials driving their research and development, an equally weighty priority is your experience – each high performance formula is anchored in luxuriously pampering scents and textures.
Caudalie formulates all products with patented, innovative molecules that have been titrated and all benefit from the latest scientific advances in order to guarantee you maximum effectiveness from all products. Research is one of the pillars of Caudalie brand. Since the beginning, Caudalie has had its own team of researchers and formulators, and invest 10% of all profits into research each year. Caudalie collaboration with Professor Vercauteren and the University of Pharmacy has allowed Caudalie to register 3 fundamentally advanced patents in Natural cosmetics:
1. The polyphenols from grape-seeds are the most powerful anti-oxidant in the plant world 2. Resveratrol from grapevine stalks, the anti-ageing revolution 3. Viniferine from grapevine sap, the most effective Natural molecule against dark spots.
A word from founder Mathilde Thomas: 'I created Caudalie because I believe that it is possible to formulate ultra effective and natural beauty products with refined, luxurious textures inspired by the vine. For more than 15 years, Caudalie has continued its research with Professor Vercauteren, in a tradition that respects both your skin and the environment'.
