Browse Our Caudalie Range
Caudalie from Paris specialise in skincare, cosmetics and fragrance. It originated in 1993, during the harvest of Château Smith Haut Lafitte when French husband and wife Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas met Professor Joseph Vercauteren of Pharmacy in Bordeaux France.
A polyphenols specialist, he shared his discovery of PCOs with them, how PCOs extracted from grape-seeds are more effective than vitamin E when it comes to fighting against free radicals.
In 1995, Mathilde and Bertrand launched three products that used grape seed polyphenols to create anti-ageing properties. Caudalie means "the haunting scent of wine" and the packaging of the products depicts an image of a grape. The brand has also been nicknamed as "Big Grape".
In 1999, the company created their first Vinothérapie Spa in the grounds of Château Smith Haut Lafitte. A subsidiary of Caudalie was opened in USA in 2001.
