A staple in the Jo & Co beauty collection, French skincare brand Caudalie is a firm favourite amongst our staff and customers alike.
The perfect balance of effective and natural, Caudalie have built their formulas around effective ingredients of natural origin, only using synthetic ingredients when they are good and necessary for product performance.
Started in Bordeaux by founders Mathilde and Bertrand, in the heart of the vines at Château Smith Haut Lafitte, the brand began with just three products, containing grape seed polyphenols - one of the most powerful antioxidants from the botanical realm.
At just 23 years old, they set off on a mission to impress pharmacists across France with the effectiveness of their creations. From here, the Caudalie brand was born.
