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 outstanding potential, Guerlain has set up its first ever research centre ever to be devoted to a single 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)

The Mask is enriched with the combined action of two extracts with soothing and relaxing properties which help restore skin wellness: Seed extract from Tephrosia purpurea, a tropical plant which originates from India and is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, and alpha-bisabolol, obtained from the essential oil of candeia.

Expert Formulas

 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. Cell Respiration™ technology combats hypoxia* or oxygen deficiency thanks to the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids. The cells can breathe again and increase their longevity*. 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 Orchidée Impériale Mask has been formulated to meet the needs of skin which has been damaged by emotional and environmental stress. Two complimentary active ingredients combine to restore skin wellness: Tephrosia purpurea seed extract helps soothe the skin by stimulating the release of beta-endorphins*. Alpha-bisabolol, obtained from essential oil of candeia, mitigates inflamed, red or tight skin. Abyssinian oil and mango butter, both rich in fatty acids, help deeply nourish the skin and strengthen its cutaneous barrier. * In vitro tests on ingredients
