AT THE START, AN EXTRAORDINARY ENTREPRENEURIAL FAMILY STORY
Le Domaine is the tale of a family, the Perrins, rooted in this land & its vines since 1909. More than 50 years ago, Jacques Perrin chose a different path from most of his contemporaries, rejecting any use of chemical products in his vineyards, and instead pioneering biodynamic methods of wine production at Château de Beaucastel. The family now manages many vineyards accross the whole region.
This is the legacy Le Domaine now protects: a respect for nature, a visionary entrepreneurial spirit and a vision of science based on natural origin's ingredients.
A UNIQUE TERROIR: THE PERRIN VINEYARDS IN PROVENCE, FRANCE
In the distance, the Rhône Valley fades into the hills of Provence. Vineyards and olive orchards stretch as far as the eye can see.
Welcome to the Famille Perrin estates, a terroir that has remained intact since the 17th century.
20 YEARS OF R&D
Le Domaine’s innovative compound ProGR3® was created by ProGeLife, a French biotech company founded by Pr. Lévy & Pr. Cau. A combination of natural molecules from plant extracts, it targets Progerin, a mutated protein involved in the 12 known mechanisms responsible for cell senescence & aging.
The second compound, GSM10®, based on more than 10 years of research by Pr. Teissedre, has impressive levels of antioxidants & anti-MMPs (Matrix Metalloproteinases, which destroy collagen). At the core of Le Domaine skin care is this innovative combination of ProGR3® & GSM10®.
A DECISIVE MEETING
Le Domaine is also a human tale. Brad Pitt, the owner of Château Miraval, fell in love with the unique beauty of Provence.
In 2012, he began exploring the treasures of the vineyard. He worked with the Perrin family to restore Miraval, cultivating the estate’s grapevines and building a strong friendship along the way.
Spurred by the same desire to preserve its ecosystem and safeguard its riches for future generations, Le Domaine and its distinctive approach to skin care was a natural step for them to take together.
