"The Story "Do you know that you are throwing away treasures?" This sentence changed my life. It marks my meeting with Professor Vercauteren during the 1993 grape harvest in the vineyards of Château Smith Haut Lafitte. He then revealed the amazing anti-oxidant powers of grapevine and grape Polyphenols. Caudalie was born. I founded Caudalie with my husband Bertrand in 1995, and we still run this wonderful company with the same passion and conviction as on the very first day. Every week I test dozens of textures, selecting the best ingredients, establishing what is most efficient for the skin. I created Caudalie because I believe in beauty products that are not only effective, but also natural and luxurious."  - Mathilde Thomas
