The Story Behind Caudalie
Mathilda and her husband believed that their vines and grapes possessed exceptional powers for the skin. It was revealed to them the extraordinary antioxidant power of the discarded debris of their grape harvest, was more effective than vitamin E at fighting against free radicals.
In 1995 they registered a patent for extracting and stabilising grape-seed Polyphenols and created the Caudalie brand.
The couple went on to develop the power of these vines and grapes into an internationally known skincare brand.
The Caudalie Hero Products
This Beauty Elixir is to be applied between foundation and powder. Designed to tighten pores and enhance radiance, it is hugely popular at Bath & Unwind. Its minty fragrance gives it that fresh and ready for the day ahead feeling. We like to keep one of these in our handbags, on our desks and in the bathroom so we can reapply for optimal results throughout the day. To “powder your nose” is only half of it.
Inspired by the ‘elixir of youth’ used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary.
