Sylvie Chantecaille is the creator, heart and soul of Chantecaille, an exclusive cosmetics brand and a family business. With more than 25 years of experience and known as one of the industry's foremost innovators who is recognized for her unique ability to integrate science and technology with botanicals and luxury skincare, Sylvie is dedicated to making women's lives easier, healthier and more beautiful.
Born into a family of art collectors, Sylvie was raised around art and beauty. Her natural affinity for form, color and detail were honed by her studies in Art History. She moved to New York in the 1970's and started a small company of exclusive cosmetics with Diane von Furstenberg. Their successful Madison Avenue business caught the attention of the Estée Lauder. In 1979, Sylvie launched Prescriptives at Estée Lauder. With a new level of science in its groundbreaking formulas Prescriptives went on to become one of the best-selling cosmetics lines.
Fueled by the desire to create a new company that combined her own spiritual and holistic philosophy as well as an interest in aromatherapy, Sylvie began her new venture in 1997. She launched Chantecaille equipped with a well-researched understanding of the needs and wants of modern women and invaluable contacts within the sourcing and manufacturing communities. It began as a small fragrance house with four highly original scents based on natural essential oils that presaged the next wave in cosmetics and laid the foundation for the company's unique approach to beauty.
Supported by the business acumen of her husband as well as the creative, strategic and artistic talents of her three children, Sylvie has transformed Chantecaille into a revolutionary skincare and cosmetics brand renowned internationally for its technologically advanced approach to naturally beautiful skin.
Sylvie's longstanding commitment to promoting wellness, her deep connection to nature and her abiding passion for artistic expression is shared by her husband and children. With them by her side, she has created a business of beauty that reflects her values and enhances the lives of women around the globe.
Chantecaille is the preeminent luxury brand for serious skincare and beautifying cosmetics known for its uniquely high concentration of natural botanicals. The line stands out for the extensive research and technological innovation invested in each groundbreaking formula. It is also distinguished by the exceptional purity of its ingredients, which are endowed with a potent life force capable of nourishing and revitalizing the skin, the body and the spirit.
Chantecaille focuses its attention on inflammation, which is scientifically recognized as the main cause of aging. The healing properties of its plant-based formulas reduce the aging effects of inflammation on the different layers of the skin, often penetrating below the surface with innovative nano-technology.
Chantecaille employs advanced technologies alongside centuries-old traditions in skincare. Biotechnology, Chinese medicine, aromatherapy and European flower pharmacology all contribute to the company's proprietary blend of natural elements and scientific rigor. It offers extraordinary results to modern women who demand high-performance, health-enhancing products that are both efficient and effective.
Chantecaille makeup is renowned for its natural look, particularly the translucent foundations that have revolutionized the way women use coverage. The color collection, also imbued with skin-friendly natural ingredients and natural antioxidants, always complements current fashion, interpreting each season's important hues, textures and finishes.
Chantecaille has always sought to raise awareness for important environmental concerns. It's an integral part of the brand and a way to give back to the bountiful nature that serves as its muse. Chantecaille's intimate relationship with women has been instrumental in establishing a platform for sharing these ideas and for providing opportunities for greater involvement in global issues. Subsequent "Cause-metics" Collections have been launched as Chantecaille's continued passion and commitment to the oceans and to endangered species grows stronger and stronger. This sense of balance and reciprocity also helps define the Chantecaille aesthetic, which expresses a deep respect for the extraordinary beauty and richness of nature
