The history

The history of professional cosmetics

Founded in 1975, Vagheggi immediately became a benchmark for professional Italian cosmetics, in particular in the field of phytocosmetics. This is a natural path to beauty, a milestone also achieved thanks to formulas that make totally scientific use of every single active principle available in nature, turning them into allies with high added value.



Vagheggi's original objective was to team the tradition of natural cosmetics with cutting-edge technologies in the creation of guaranteed high-performance formulas. Starting with scrupulous selection of ingredients that are chosen according to their geographic origin, concentration of active ingredients, seasonality and harvesting methods. In our cosmetics you will find lavender from Upper Provence harvested in June, citrus fruits from Sicily picked in January, cold-pressed oils, organically grown althaea officinalis, golden chamomile, resin crystals, amethyst, rice bran, black quinoa and lots of other ingredients, all natural, all effective. This pursuit of excellence is followed by application of innovative formula technologies that multiply the potential of the active principles already present in nature to give visible, long-lasting results.


The Vagheggi Phytocosmetics philosophy lies in the power of intuition that stays ahead of fashions and fads, dating back to a period in time when being ‘green’ was not trendy, and in having coherently and determinedly followed through our own vision of ‘contemporary greenness’.

The vision of the Cavalcante family has been clear and coherent right from the beginning. This has led to the decision to follow a courageous path that still today sees totally in-house production: R&D laboratories, storage of the ingredients, production and storage of semi-finished products, packaging and storage of the finished products.
