DYNAMIC BLACKBEE REPAIR TECHNOLOGY

The Dynamic Blackbee Repair technology combines the most powerful bee products, selected by Guerlain Research: the exceptional Black Bee honey from Ouessant Island (Brittany, France), enriched with three other honeys from unspoilt islands (Corsica, Ikaria and Åland) and an exclusive royal jelly. This exclusive technology inspired by the latest discoveries in neuroscience accelerates the skin’s natural repair mechanisms.

A FORMULA ENRICHED WITH FIVE BEE TREASURES

Made up of 95% naturally-derived ingredients¹, the Advanced Youth Watery Oil’s formula combines an exceptional blend of bee products: pure Black Bee honey from Ouessant Island (Brittany, France), rich Corsican honey (France), the legendary honey from the Island of Ikaria (Greece), rare honey from the Äland archipelago (Finland) and an exclusive French royal jelly, all from exclusive protected channels, using beekeeping methods that are kind to bees and the environment.

¹Calculation based on the international ISO standard 16128, including water. The remaining 5% contribute to optimizing the formula's integrity over time and its sensorial texture.

A UNIQUE TEXTURE, RICH AS AN OIL LIGHT AS WATER

Made using our unique formulation know-how, its surprising texture offers the richness of an oil, the lightness of a lotion and the power of a serum. Made from 95% naturally-derived ingredients¹, its formula, enriched with efficient microbeads, works immediately to moisturise the skin without weighing it down.

TOMÁŠ LIBERTÍNY, THE ARTIST WHO ELEVATES NATURE TO AN ART FORM

Tomáš Libertíny was born in Slovakia in 1979. He lives and works in Rotterdam as an artist and designer. His work ranges from engineering to industrial design through painting and sculpture. His practice combines the technical expertise of industrial design with the poetry inherent in art, with a view to creating objects that question the interactions between nature, humans and technology. His approach is perfectly illustrated by his series on and with bees through which he introduces the concept of “slow prototyping,” such as his seminal Honeycomb Vase in 2006. Reproducing the natural construction process for the hive, the designer provides the insects with different moulds that will lead to the creation of beeswax structures. Thanks to his in-depth knowledge of their natural environment, the artist constructs a light structure on which living bees swarm and regurgitate food, bringing his works to life. For the creation of Nefertiti’s bust, Tomáš Libertíny built the framework of his wax sculpture and then two years and 60,000 bees were required for it to take on its final shape. The artist plays the role of designer, giving free rein to the bees, which have all the time in the world to do their creative work.
