THE HISTORY OF CADEY IN
Cadei was the name of two brothers from Milan, well-known hairdressers who in early 1900 founded a company that almost exclusively sold henna-based products, in use in their salons.
Crucial stage in the progressive expansion of the company was without a doubt the move from Milan to Piacenza in 1959.
In the following years the Cadey laboratory produced a product that was truly innovative in Italy at the time:
Depilsoap was the first depilating soap, a genuine innovation that simplified depilation, joining wax and the razor as an alternative and delicate method to remove unwanted hair. Over the following decades, Depilsoap became a rich and varied depilation line, with products ranging from depilatory cream to mousse, from strips to hot wax.
In 1986 Cadey launched an innovative and enormously successful product onto the market:
Bilboa Bronze Shower, the line of shower gels that “do not wash away your tan”, available in many pleasant fragrances.
In the wake of Bronze Shower came Bilboa Sunscreens, a brand loved by the consumer, a wide and complete range of products for the protection of all skin types when tanning.
First Cadey proposed a multifunctional cream to the Italian market, combining the simple sunscreen with specific properties connected to particular consumer needs: Anti-wrinkle sunscreen, anti-cellulite sun cream, junior insect-repellent sunscreen.
In the same years (1989-1990), taking advantage of the assonance with the Bilboa brand, the
Bilba brand took shape which was specifically for hair, the first and only restructuring treatment based on a synergy between bone and placenta.
Bilba, the complete line of hair care and hair styling, stands among the top market positions in its sector thanks to the enormous publicity that supported it.
After years of research, in 1996, Cadey launched an exceptional line of colouring products,
Herbal Nuance Cream. Stemming from the evolution and experience of the company, effectively supported by well-chosen packaging and a very successful advertising campaign, the line of DIY dyes took no time at all to impose itself on a market monopolised by giants, forcing them to adapt to the new rules of the competitive sector.
In 2001 Cadey launched the SkinChange brand, a line of creams that vary from anti-wrinkle line to anti-cellulite treatment, from anti-stretch marks and firming specialties to traditional moisturising and nourishing creams, which had great success thanks to the characteristic packaging in the maxi-format of 500 ml.
Today Cadey is a modern company that claims innovation as its strength. This is how
Staminaline was born, a technologically cutting edge anti-cellulite product based on
Plant Stem Cells. Cadey is still in constant growth today thanks to research into exclusive and innovative products and has decided to tackle the
American market, offering the American consumer its leading product:
