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®.
This unique research centre revealed the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids – including Gastrodia elata, an orchid essential to traditional Chinese medicine -, selected from among more than 30,000 species, forming the core of the latest Cell Respiration™ Technology in the Orchidée Impériale The Cream.
For 10 years, Guerlain has been committed to the preservation of orchids in their natural environment. 10,000 orchids have been reintroduced in the Tianzi Nature Reserve in Yunnan, China, one of the world's original birthplaces of orchids.
The Radiance Essence-in-Lotion is composed of 96% of naturally derived ingredients*.
*Based of the international ISO standard 16128, including water. The remaining 4% contribute to optimizing the formula’s integrity over time and its sensorial texture.
- The Cell Respiration™ Technology, based on an exceptional duo of orchids (Gastrodia elata and Phalaenopsis amabilis) and developed by Guerlain Research, helps combat the visible signs of ageing. Over the years, the cells struggle to maintain their oxygen availability. This natural phenomenon, called hypoxia, prevents them from functioning normally, which accelerates skin ageing and dulling of the complexion.
- The Orchid Noble Light™ Technology, an exclusive technology inspired by epigenetics, acts holistically on the main sources of skin dullness, preserves its translucency and reveals a smooth, radiant face. Enriched with a precious orchid (Dendrobium nobile) and a brightening peptide, this technology enlightens and harmonizes the complexion. The skin looks more even and toned, clearer and more translucent. It regains its radiance and light.
Pure concentration of innovation this revolutionary foundation also provides numerous solutions to the recurrent problems of high-coverage foundations.
- Dehydration – thanks to the Water Lock Technology, formulated using 3D polymers that help to maintain optimal moisture levels. A mesh forms on the skin’s surface to gradually deliver moisturising active ingredients, allowing it to remain intensely hydrated and luminous.
- Migration of pigments into wrinkles and fine lines – thanks to the Colour Lock Technology, a dual combination of polymers that prevent the unsightly migration of pigments into wrinkles and fine lines. The complexion remains even and flawless for 10h.
