Expert formulas

Guerlain - Tianzi

Enriched with the new Orchid Essential Water complex, the Essence-in-Lotion combines the comprehensive age-defying efficacy of Orchidée Impériale with optimum hydration.
Consisting of an aqueous extract of orchid combined with low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, this complex moisturises and boosts the natural hydration of the skin deep inside.
Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is made up of tiny fragments that the skin perceives as a deterioration in its own hyaluronic acid. The skin responds by activating its own hyaluronic acid synthesis and boosting its self-hydration mechanism from the inside*.
The Essence-in-Lotion has an incredibly fine, light texture and reveals plumped, smoother and visibly more beautiful skin.

For 15 years, Guerlain Research has been pushing back the frontiers of cellular longevity. Now it has identified a new 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*. All 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 breath of life.
