The luxe makeup and skincare brand famous for its chic packaging, nature-based formulas and high performing products will be opening its first dedicated counter here next month at Takashimaya.
Inspired by the healing potential of nature, Sylvie Chantecaille founded the eponymous beauty label in 1998 with four fragrances that boast a high concentration of essential and botanical oils. She then moved on to create a collection of skincare and makeup products that became known for its high concentration of natural botanicals.
When it comes to its skincare, Chantecaille puts a special focus on treating inflammation, which is scientifically recognised as the main cause of aging. The healing properties of its plant-based formulas reduce the ageing effects of inflammation on the different layers of the skin. The brand uses pure, responsibly sourced ingredients, which are 80 to 100 per cent natural.
Many of its products have a pure rosewater base and essential oils for a natural fragrance. The brand is known for marrying advanced technologies with centuries-old traditions when creating its skincare, employing everything from biotechnology, Chinese medicine, aromatherapy and European flower pharmacology.
Its cosmetics are also made with skin-loving ingredients, which is another reason why we love them. Most of the NYC-based brand’s makeup helps to perfect your complexion with a natural finish, so you don’t look as if you have a ton of product on. Its translucent foundations, in particular, have gained fans amongst many beauty industry insiders.
Chantecaille is also careful to leave out ingredients we that are harmful, ineffective or unsustainable in its products, which are all created without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, palm oil, sulphate detergents, petrolatum, and are never tested on animals.
Here, we’ve listed out our favourite items from Chantecaille that you’ve got to check out.
