15 years of research on skin longevity
The Orchid, a rare and precious raw ingredient, is the very essence of the exceptional complete care range Orchidée Impériale. A genuine longevity prodigy, the orchid is the most developed species in the plant kingdom. Convinced of its exceptional potential, Guerlain set up its first research centre ever to be devoted to an ingredient: the Orchidarium®.

Guerlain Research runs three interrelated and complementary centres:
- The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland)
- The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France)
- The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China)

Expert Formulas

Thanks to the sebo-regulating power of encapsulated zinc, the smart microspheres absorb the excess sebum only where the skin needs it to control shine. The hyaluronic acid coating locks in water to reinforce the skin's natural hydration*. The Emulsion has a light, silky, nourishing texture and results in smoother, more matt and comfortable feeling skin. For 15 years, Guerlain Research has been pushing back the frontiers of cellular longevity. Now it has identified a mechanism that plays a key role in longevity: cellular respiration. More effective thanks to the discovery of the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, Cell Respiration™ technology delivers superior efficacy inside the skin. It regulates cellular respiration and combats hypoxia* or oxygen deficiency, a phenomenon that increases with age. The cells can breathe again and maximise energy production which boosts cell regeneration*. The visible signs of ageing are minimised: wrinkles and fine lines fade, the skin regains firmness, density and elasticity, the complexion is even and more radiant. The skin is infused with a new breath of life. *In vitro tests on ingredients
