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 exceptional potential, Guerlain set up its first research centre ever to be devoted to an ingredient: the Orchidarium®. Guerlain Research runs three interrelated and complementary centres:
- The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland): A greenhouse where a collection of Guerlain orchids is housed in order to study and identify the most remarkable species.
- The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France): The first basic research unit dedicated to the study of orchids and the identification and analysis of longevity molecules.
- The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China): A nature reserve, a pillar of biodiversity and conservation where wild orchids are protected and reintroduced into their natural environment.

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. Thanks to the discovery of the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, Cell Respiration™ technology. 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, boosting cell regeneration*. 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 new breath of life.
