Caudalie has build a veritable empire on the antioxidant power of grapes. In fact, before anyone in mainstream beauty was talking about antioxidants, they maintained that resveratrol (obtained from the skins of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes), had tremendous anti-aging benefits and was the first skincare brand to use it topically – and the first to patent it in stabilized levels.
I’ve been a fan of Mama Mio since they launched because they advocate beauty and fitness.
