Listen In: The Business of Beauty

Sylvie Chantecaille on growing her namesake brand, pioneering causemetics, and leading through challenging times.


Beauty is your Business
Sylvie sat down with industry expert Abby Wallach on the Beauty is your Business podcast. Their wide-ranging conversation (over croissants shared from Sylvie’s favorite neighborhood bakery) looked back on how Sylvie started her family brand and the defining moments of her enduring, inventive career.

From botanical ingredients and color-matching to sustainable plant stem cells and environmental causes, hear how the family business Sylvie built on clean, healthy ingredients has grown into a global brand while also becoming a platform for philanthropic conservation efforts.

The Glossy Beauty Podcast
In Sylvie’s first-ever Zoom-recorded podcast, she sits down with Glossy’s executive beauty editor and podcast host, Priya Rao, to talk about the current state of the beauty industry. They discuss how beauty has changed in 2020, what luxury really means (stellar, personalized service), and her ideas for Chantecaille’s future product direction and how people want to wear makeup—even just for video calls.

Commercial difficulties presented by the Covid-19 pandemic have affected the entire beauty industry, but Sylvie has a plan to keep customers engaged, attended-to, and excited about beauty.
