Chantecaille’s Palettes Benefit Charities

Due to a deep concern for our endangered environment and the many animals at risk, Chantecaille has always reached out to its customers – through its products and coverage in the press – on these universally relevant issues. A key impetus for creating the company was a strong desire to establish a platform with the power to draw attention to important issues of global sustainability, and to fund a foundation that could support related initiatives.

According to founder Sylvie Chantecaille, “Our customers are very intelligent women with the power to make a difference.” Chantecaille’s special relationship with them has been essential to educating a broader audience and engaging more people in bringing about positive change.”

The company has launched some fabulous new palettes to benefit causes that reflect its beliefs.
