While the world never got the Pitt-Bullock romcom we all deserve, the 58-year-old is giving us Le Domaine, a science-meets-nature line of genderless skin care essentials that he developed in partnership with the Perrin family, the renowned Château de Beaucastel vintners who are also Pitt’s partners in the fan-favorite Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rose. While he made a conscious decision not to front the brand as the “face” of Le Domaine — there will be no campaign portraits, no Brad on TikTok, and very few interviews after this one—Pitt has been as hands-on as it gets with its concept and development, which is based around the familiar story of grape-based antioxidants that has long been mined by more established brands. But Le Domaine approached the science in its own way, appointing one of the world’s leading wine and human health specialists, University of Bordeaux Professor of Oenology Pierre-Louis Teissedre, to determine which of the 13 grape varieties the Perrin family grows on its estates in Provence had the most relevant antioxidant properties. That research began over 15 years ago, and may have resulted in the next big thing in skin care: GSM10, an exclusive molecule in Le Domaine’s Serum, Cream, Fluid Cream and Cleansing Emulsion that combines potent properties from the seeds of Grenache grapes with the seeds and skin of Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes. It serves as a powerful antidote to oxidative stress, which can break down collagen and contribute to the myriad physical signs of aging. Professor Nicolas Levy, a leading scientist in progeria—an extremely rare genetic disorder that speeds up aging in small children—provided additional insight into the project. Having identified the way progeria affects the natural aging process, he developed ProGr3—Le Domaine’s other patented active ingredient—which is derived from grapevine tendril resveratrol and aims to keep skin cells healthier for longer.
Finally, there’s the magical nature of Miraval’s soil itself—the terroir, as it’s called by oenologists when discussing the growing conditions unique to specific grapevines—in this case terrace upon terrace of olive trees; miles and miles of otherworldly lichen-encrusted woodland; and air so thick with lavender that at one point I seriously wonder if it’s being artificially pumped in. No pesticides are used at Miraval where all farming is done biodynamically; the clay- and limestone-rich soil is plowed and the vines aren’t irrigated, which encourages their roots to reach deep down into the ground for moisture. The deeper the roots grow, the better their interaction with the soil, which creates that much sought-after complexity in Miraval’s grapes as well as in the olive oil that’s produced on the property, the combination of which makes up the base of the 96% natural, vegan, and sustainable line: Refillable bottles are punctuated by a clever packaging detail featuring wooden caps recycled from old wine casks.
Later, while stuck at the EasyJet terminal in Marseille with Teissedre, Pitt would tell me that the research into this project has been incredible, even by his standards. And that’s something he is more than happy to be a part of. “Through the ages, Château Miraval has always been this hub of creativity; it has so many places within it where you want to sit and think and expand and explore and make beautiful things,” he says from one such vantage point in the well-appointed outdoor living area that overlooks a soccer pitch he created for his family. That’s not necessarily reason enough to get into what is already a very saturated skin care market, Pitt concedes. But Le Domaine’s efficacy just might be. “I know there are new products nearly every day that people are trying to launch, but if I hadn’t seen a real difference visually in my skin, we wouldn’t have bothered.” Sitting just a few feet away from his clear, sun-kissed complexion, it’s hard to argue with that logic. Here, Pitt reveals his “little, simple regimen,” how Gwyneth Paltrow influenced his early skin care habits, and why self-love just may be the best secret to aging well.
