The Caudalie story began in 1993 when two college sweethearts, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas, took a summer job at her family winery in Bordeaux and met Dr. Vercauteren, the world's leading expert on grapevine polyphenols. The professor revealed the extraordinary antioxidant powers of the vine, inspiring the couple to create the world's leading vinotherapy skincare line. Caudalie is the first beauty company to use (and patent) stabilized grape seed polyphenols in skincare and steers clear of parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oils, and artificial colorings to protect your skin and the environment. Balancing science and nature with a touch of luxury, Caudalie is always on the cutting edge of antioxidant technology. Uncork the formulas and let your skin drink up the benefits.
