ORCHIDÉE IMPÉRIALE BLACK
The quintessence of the rare and exclusive luxury, Orchidée Impériale Black is the latest creation in the Orchidée Impériale Exceptional Complete Care range. After more than 15 years of research at the Orchidarium®, Guerlain experts reveal the extraordinary power of the Black Orchid¹, a true talisman against time, for preserved, regenerated and extended youthfulness.
THE POWER OF THE BLACK ORCHID¹
A RARE, POWERFUL, ENDURING ORCHID
Native to the peruvian Andes, the Black Orchid¹ is an ebony-coloured wild orchid. It has the rare distinction of flowering only once a year during two short weeks. Queen of survival, it adapts its metabolism to its environment. It is capable of increasing its production of male flowers, thus encouraging the fertilisation of female flowers and, as a result, the number of fruits. It intelligently saves its energy and optimises its longevity, embodying a real talisman against time.
A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO SKIN SELF-DEFENSE
At the heart of the Orchidée Impériale Black line, the BlackImmune™ technology encapsulates the power of Black Orchid to help protect skin from aging². This technology targets 95% of the epidermal cells involved in the skin's self-defense². Continuously protected, skin can thus devote all its resources to its regeneration. Day after day, the signs of aging are reduced and the skin looks visibly younger.
THE EXCELLENCE OF FRENCH CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THE SERVICE OF SUSTAINABLE LUXURY
Orchidée Impériale Black skincare products are nestle at the heart of porcelain jars realised in an artisan manner by the maison Bernardaud. Established since 1863 in Limoges, this prestigious family-owned manufacture has epitomised the excellence of french porcelain for over 150 years.
Refillable, these porcelain jars are in line with Guerlain's commitment to sustainability.
THE ULTIMATE YOUTH TRILOGIE
These exceptional skincare products act in synergy to optimise the age-defying performance of Orchidée Impériale Black. Masterpieces of high cosmetics, their luxurious textures procure a unique level of sensorial comfort for the skin.
THE 30% CONCENTRATED IMU-REPROGRAMMING PROTOCOL¹
The exceptional 4-week intensive rejuvenating Orchidée Impériale Black Treatment is a skincare masterpiece based around four complementary formulas. Each formula offers the power of 30% potent ingredients to reprogram the skin's self-defense and youth systems week after week. A visible rebirth of the skin for enhanced beauty and redefined facial features.
THE ORCHIDARIUM®: THE FIRST RESEARCH CENTRE EVER DEDICATED TO THE ORCHID
For more than 15 years, Guerlain has been searching for the orchid's secret of longevity. This is why it created the Orchidarium®, the first research centre ever dedicated to studying the biological and cosmetic properties of an ingredient.
