THE BLACKIMMUNE™ TECHNOLOGY: A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO SKIN SELF-DEFENSE
The Black Orchid gives birth to BlackImmune™ technology. This technology targets 95% of the epidermic cells involved in the skin's self-defense¹. Each application, the skin becomes stronger and more resistant to external aggressions. Continuously protected, skin can thus devote all its resources to its regeneration, for skin that is more beautiful and younger-looking, for longer.
The Cream succeeds in the prowess of conciliating high-efficacy and high-sensorial experience thanks to its fine and generous formula that wraps the skin in a luxurious cocoon of protection. Made with ingredients with different fusion points, it offers a soft balm touch that triggers a cascade of melting sensations upon application.

A RARE, POWERFUL, ENDURING ORCHID
Native to the peruvian Andes, the Black Orchid¹ is an ebony-coloured wild orchid. It has the rare distinction of flowering only two weeks a year, and – even more remarkably – bearing male and female flowers on the same plants. An invaluable quality that allows it – through an in-depth understanding of its environment – to adapt its metabolism by establishing an ongoing symbiosis with its ecosystem. In the face of dangers, excess sun or a lack of light, for example, it responds by producing more male flowers, thus encouraging the fertilisation of female flowers and, as a result, more fruit. It intelligently conserves its energy and optimises its longevity, embodying a real talisman against time.

AN EXCEPTIONAL JAR HAND-CRAFTED BY THE MAISON BERNARDAUD
The Cream nestles at the heart of a refillable porcelain jar realised in an artisan manner by the maison Bernardaud. Established since 1863 in Limoges, this prestigious family-owned manufacture has epitomised the excellence of french porcelain for over 150 years.
Handcrafted, this jar is enameled in black and enhanced with 24-carat gold.
Refillable, it embodies the expression of a more sustainable luxury.
