Vinothérapie was created by Caudalie and means using the benefits of the vine and grapes in unique skin care products.
Since its creation, Caudalie has always been opposed to animal testing and does not test on animals in compliance with EU regulations. We use alternative methods to test our compounds and our finished products. Moreover, we do not use animal ingredients.
All the tests we perform are only carried out on volunteers in a clinic environment and are conducted by an independent laboratory, accredited by the French Ministry of Health, for total objectivity.We are against animal testing and favour suppliers who use alternative methods for our raw materials.
Our first requirement is to ensure perfect safety for our products. Also, please be aware that we continue to defend our Cosm'ethics and are always seeking to go one step further in our commitments. Hence, in 2012, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas, the founders, decided to donate 1% of Caudalie's turnover to ecological associations for the protection of the planet and the preservation of plant and animal species.
During this period of hormonal imbalance we recommend the VINOPERFECT range with Viniferine from grapevine sap, which is anti-dark spots and radiance restoring, to prevent or treat the appearance of pigmentation spots (chloasma), common in pregnant women.
For the body, we recommend daily application of Nourishing Body Lotion to relieve itching due to the skin stretching. Our skincare lotion will also improve the elasticity of the skin, thereby preventing stretch marks.
As a precaution, in the early months of pregnancy and when breastfeeding, we recommend avoiding products concentrated in essential oils. These are the night oils (POLYPHENOL C15 OVERNIGHT DETOX OIL, VINOSOURCE OVERNIGHT RECOVERY OIL), concentrates for the face (Nourishing, Rebalancing, Purifying), concentrates for the body (Contouring and Firming), as well as the CRUSHED CABERNET SCRUB. The VINEXPERT dietary supplements are also not recommended for pregnant women.
These include the Concentrates for the face (Nourishing, Balancing, Regenerating), the Concentrates for the body (Slimming and Firming) as well as the body scrubs (Crushed Cabernet, Merlot Friction) and the Beauty Elixir.
Our cleansers for the body and hair are non foaming as they are free from sodium laureth sulfate. This ingredient, often used in this type of product, is very harsh to the skin and does not degrade easily. We prefer milder and less aggressive agents for the skin that do not foam but clean perfectly!
All our facial products are non-comedogenic. This means that they do not cause blackheads.
The mention of a use-by date is not mandatory with regard to the legislation on topical skin care products. Hence, you will not find one on our packaging, except on our Dietary Supplements and our Draining Organic Herbal Teas which are ingested. We are lucky in that our products do not remain for very long with our stockists and they are frequently assessed by our sales team as well. If you have any doubts about a product, please contact our Customer Service on 00 800 4429 2424, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 6 pm.
Most of our formulas have proven stability of more than 30 months.
We mention the PAO, i.e. the Period After Opening. So on our packaging you can see a pictogram of an open jar indicating the recommended period of use, once the product has been opened. It generally varies from 6 months (6M) to 24 months (24M).

We systematically favour natural active ingredients of fair trade and / or organic origin. And we also use active ingredients from biotechnology for their unparalleled effectiveness. The products are worked on in an open formula system for continued improvement, thus some active ingredients are replaced by even better ones as soon as it is possible to do so.
Organic is not an end in itself for Caudalie. We use organic active ingredients as soon as we are sure of their effectiveness and quality.
Our formulas do not contain nanoparticles.
At the moment we prefer chemical filters in our sun care to provide maximum protection against UV and maximum pleasure of use so as to encourage regular application of the product. Mineral filters unfortunately still do not offer very sensory textures that are invisible on the skin, which is a barrier to frequent use.
All our active ingredients from the grapevine and grapes are from France. Our suppliers are mainly Bordeaux vineyards but we also get supplies from Champagne, Gard and Herault vineyards.
We use preservatives in our products in small doses and those that we use are certified by Ecocert.
We prefer synthetic molecules for our face care products and Fresh Fragrances to prevent the risk of sensitisation. Essential oils are indeed known for their photosensitising and allergic risk.
