A beautiful story (1993)
“I founded Caudalie with my husband Bertrand.”
Our story starts in Bordeaux (France), at the heart of the vineyards on the family estate. The rare beauty of this natural setting inspires us every day. The vine and grapes possess exceptional powers for the skin - powers which were simply waiting to be developed.
The encounter that changed my life (1993)
“Do you know that you are throwing away treasures?”
This sentence changed my life. It marks my meeting with Professor Vercauteren in 1993, during the grape harvest season in my family's vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte.
Caudalie was born (1995)
“We extract treasures full of beneficial effects from the vine.”
Two years later, in 1995, having registered a patent for extracting and stabilising grape-seed Polyphenols, we created the Caudalie brand.
My first Vinothérapie® Spa (1999)
“Set deep within the vines, the Les Sources de Caudalie Spa is a treasure-trove of our products.”
My husband and I planned to create, within our family's vineyards at Château Smith Haut Lafitte, a dream and well-being place where we could offer divine treatments using our products.
Anti-ageing Resveratrol (2001)
“There is no miracle cure for skin ageing, there is a patent!”
The vine produces Resveratrol naturally to defend itself. In 2001, we were the first to use this high-performance natural active ingredient in a cosmetic application (brevet N°WO9903816). Ourgrapevine-extracted Resveratrol, stabilised and titrated, is combined with essential fatty acids for a better affinity with the skin and more anti-ageing efficacy.
Anti dark-spot Viniferine (2005)
“In my vineyard, we say
that when the vine cries,
the faces of women
Every year, in spring, the vine comes back to life after a long winter.
Precious sap runs through the grapevine stalks.
I say NO to parabens! (2006)
“I follow my intuition and my convictions.”
Ever since Caudalie was created, I have maintained a strict commitment to women who use my products: to create products using the maximum amount of natural ingredients that respect the environment.
Premier Cru (2009)
“7 years of Research for the "Crème de la Crème”

“Resveratrol, true source of infinite youth”
My greatest source of inspiration is you (2013)

Women, from around the world, use our products and they tell us how satisfied they are everyday.
Environmentally responsible development (2013)
“Giving back to the
nature in return for the riches it gives us every day.”
