Red Wine Bath: BS or Freaking Amazing?


Red Wine Bath = Vinotherapy

This story starts in Bordeaux (aka Merlot country) where a savvy young French girl by the name of Mathilde Thomas (that’s “Mah-tild Toe-mah”) was touring guests in her parents’ winery. One guest, who was a scientist, wondered what happened to all the winery waste after the pressing of grapes (e.g. the grape skins, seeds, stems, leaves, and occasional dead spider). He explained that grape seed oil was a miracle oil found to be 10x better at preventing wrinkles than vitamin E oil. Miss Thomas listened very intently. Eventually with financing from she founded Caudalie, a skincare and spa treatment brand that uses wine grape extracts. They are all the rage in Europe!
