Sylvie Chantecaille

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.
