Founded nearly 20 years ago by Sylvie Chantecaille, France’s favourite prestige beauty brand remains in the family’s capable hands. Combining luxury with pioneering, plant-derived ingredients, cutting-edge science and meticulous formulation, Chantecaille takes pride in innovation – going beyond the call of beauty to respect and cherish skin while using beauty as a tool to drive a shift within the industry, as well as shine a spotlight on environmental issues while supporting conservation to protect our precious planet and its myriad inhabitants.
Casting an invisible veil of UVA and UVB protection, Chantecaille’s answer to SPF is high in factor (an impressive SPF 45) and quality (no white cast here!).
The youth-prolonging and skin-fortifying formula contains stabilised sun filters to block both UVA and UVB ray. Acting as a primer and a sun shield, this lightweight cream is made without oil and designed to have a mattifying finish – no tell-tale sunscreen shine past this point! It’s infused with cherry blossom, lemon balm and white tea extract – all rich in antioxidants and deeply soothing, while carnosine helps to encourage a more firm and supple appearance. The finishing touch? Its delicate rose scent sets it apart from the other sun creams.
Shake well before use. Can be worn alone over moisturiser as a daily sun shield, or under foundation as a protective smoothing primer.

Transparency lies at the heart of our philosophy which is why we have partnered with tech-platform – Provenance – to cut through the industry ‘noise’ and equip you with key facts that matter. A ‘proof point’ with a green tick means a third party has verified the accuracy of the statement whereas no green tick means that there isn’t independent confirmation (yet!), but that the brand has still supplied substantiating evidence (which you can view yourself).
