After ten years of working in the fashion and beauty industry, Caitlyn Chase, the founder of Caviar & Cashmere, had an “ah ha” moment on the night of her 30th birthday.
Celebrating this milestone on a summer evening in Los Angeles with 30 of her friends and colleagues, Caitlyn began a candid conversation about beauty, which ultimately led to a lightbulb going off, inspiring her to conceptualize her inaugural luxury skincare line.
Caitlyn is a veteran in the beauty industry, and always dreamed of having her own line of non-toxic skincare products. She has always believed that women should not have to sacrifice their health for their beauty.
After trying countless skincare products that were sent for her to review over the years, Caitlyn still had not found “the one” clean skincare brand that she truly loved and found effective, and she found that many other women felt the same way. She decided to start an open dialogue with her friends, family, and followers about what was lacking in their current skincare routines, and what kind of results they desired.
The overall feeling was that women were overwhelmed and seeking more simplicity in skincare, all while valuing clean, multi-tasking, and multi-correctional products that saved them time in their busy days. Caitlyn identified the problem and immediately wanted to solve it. She teamed up with a celebrity dermatologist in Beverly Hills and a team of world-class chemists to begin developing a line of three simple yet clinically effective clean products that solved the skincare problems that she and women all over the world all faced. Caviar & Cashmere launched exactly one year after Caitlyn's 30th birthday, bringing her dream full circle from idea to reality in 365 days.
Caitlyn Chase is an internationally awarded blogger and beauty industry veteran. After a year of traveling the world for the best of the best in luxury finds to feature on her blog, Caviar & Cashmere, conceptualized in 2011, she was inspired to design her own branded cashmere products by the same name.
Today, the Caviar & Cashmere brand and blog are synonymous with luxury. Caitlyn was able to successfully grow the Caviar & Cashmere brand, with over 150 retail partners worldwide, however, decided to put the brand on hold after being offered several high-level positions at well known beauty companies to lead their marketing efforts.
Alongside her success of scaling three different beauty brand’s businesses, Caitlyn stayed committed to keeping her followers abreast of the latest in worldwide luxury lifestyle on her blog, growing her following and loyal fanbase year over year.
Caitlyn is regarded as a luxury lifestyle expert, having worked with some of the world’s most well known companies such as Olay, Diageo, Fairmont Hotels, Four Seasons Resorts, Virgin Hotels, Lionsgate Films, Glamsquad, Nicole Miller and Nespresso.
Caitlyn Chase has been featured in publications such as The Huffington Post, Glamour, Blackbook, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire and US Weekly. She has spoken on panels such as at Simply Inc and StyleCon, and has shared her luxury lifestyle tips on news outlets such as CBS and CNN. Recently, Caitlyn was invited to represent the U.S. beauty industry abroad as a governmental delegate. Caitlyn lives and breathes beauty and is passionate about about sharing her knowledge and revolutionary new clean but clinical skincare products with the world.
Caitlyn Chase, the founder of Caviar & Cashmere, has long been committed to the empowerment of women. Caitlyn launched a female networking breakfast series in 2013 which brings together women for a morning of networking, conversation, and collaboration. This event series was met with so much interest that she has now scaled it to be a bi-coastal, bi-monthly series with a 200 person waiting list.
Caitlyn is passionate about sharing this feeling of empowerment globally, so that is why she has committed to ensure Caviar & Cashmere gives back to fund her passion. A portion of proceeds from every online sale is donated to charities dedicated to educating, protecting and empowering women around the world.
