Mathilde Thomas Founder of Caudalie Interviews With Marta Walsh

I’m super excited to share with you my interview with Mathilde Thomas Founder of Caudalie. To be honest I’ve been trying to interview her for a long time now. I am always inspired and intrigued by people such as Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas who together created a brilliant brand and the creation happened organically like it was always meant to be. Real people creating real genuine products. Not a hype, just good products.

Mathilde Thomas Founder of Caudalie

It all started during the 1993 wine harvest at the Château Smith Haut Lafitte Estate, when college sweethearts Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas (who were hosting the grape harvest at Mathilde’s family vineyard) had a chance encounter with a prominent scientist from the Bordeaux University of Pharmacy. When the professor noticed the young couple throwing out vats of grape seeds, he reacted as if they where throwing away pots of gold. Since its birth in 1995 Caudalie has revolutionizing the world of natural skincare. The Caudalie spas, such as: CAUDALIE VINOTHÉRAPIE SPA AT THE PLAZA, then followed. Here’s a sneak peek to the real story in my interview with the genius mind behind the brand, Mathilde.

Marta Walsh: Where do you call home?
Mathilde Thomas: My heart is in Paris and that’s where I will retire, but right now I’m a New Yorker! I love it here and am so happy to have the chance to be able to explore this amazing city as a local.

Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic

Organic Skincare, Natural Skincare. Here’s Marta Walsh’s take on Organic Skincare or Natural Skincare. I’m very picky when comes to the latest trend in the beauty market and the magic word: ‘Organic’. Just because a product says it’s organic does not make it a good product. Often time some organic products are greasy with all their natural oils, smell too ylang ylang or a strong lavender and are off putting to me. Quite frankly, some of them don’t seem to work in cleaning my face or keeping my face super hydrated. Only select few get it right. The 1st brand that comes to mind is NUDE Skincare founded by Bryan Meehan which is a brilliant organic skincare line that actually works for me. I also like REN skincare, also a British import. In the USA I love ARCONA Los Angeles skincare line.

My latest discovery is Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic and these three products smell amazing and are not greasy! I haven’t tried the rest of the line, but these 3 are good. L to R: Certified Organic Hand Purifier, Certified Organic Hand Sanitizer, and Certified Organic 100% Pure Jasmine Absolute. The brand was founded by Horst M. Rechelbacher.
