Germaine de Capuccini is a beauty company boasting of 40 years in the skin care business. Created by Carmen Videl, the company has been littered with awards for respecting both the environment and the employees that work for the company. The company aims to reduce the carbon footprint on the earth and uses the “Green Dot” program to promote their support of the environment.
There is an official website for the Germaine de Capuccini products in the United States. The website is set up to link the consumer to the nearest retailer for the Germaine de Capuccini products. This means each retailer is forced to set up their own informative site with some offering more information than others. There are three distributing companies, Esthetique Supply, Aesthetics Complete and International Aesthetic Corporation. Of all the websites, the Aesthetics Complete is the most professional and offers the most information on the products.
The Germaine de Capuccini products are broken into male and female lines of care. The male lines include exfoliators, shaving creams, after shave, facial moisturizers, anti-shine, anti-fatigue, and eye creams. The female lines include firming, hand, legs, preparation and reducing products. There are many more products listed under the female tab than the male tab which is common with skin care companies.
The only Germaine de Capuccini products that could be considered antiaging are the firming solutions. There are four firming products. Each of the products include detailed ingredient lists including ingredients such as marine collagen, marine elastin, bitter orange extract and gingko biloba. The facial creams all retail for around $60.00 for 6.8 ounces but the Bust Firming Lotion retails for $48.00 for 1.7 ounces.
- There is an official website.
- Ingredient lists are found on at least one of the websites.
- According to the websites, the products are not available online.
- There are three websites which could be confusing for the consumer.
- The websites do not all offer the same quality information.
- Some of the products are costly.
The Bottom Line
Reviewing this product was a bit more difficult than we assumed it would be. Whenever you review a company that has been in business for 40 years, finding negatives about that company is hard. The Germaine de Capuccini company does a lot of things right – they offer complete ingredient lists, they offer information on the products and official websites. However, having three websites is a bit too much. The main website with links to regions would be more concise and provide better information to the consumer. There are no testimonials and no clinical evidence that the products work. This is something that should be offered after 40 years.
