EXCEPTIONAL REVITALIZING POWER

Bee products are some of the world’s most effective natural repairing and healing substances. Professor Descottes, Head of Organ and Transplant Surgery at Limoges University Hospital, has demonstrated through his research the fast healing power of honey. Guerlain has been researching and working with bee products for ten years to create the Abeille Royale skincare program to minimize the visible signs of ageing, namely wrinkles and loss of firmness.

TWO GUERLAIN EXCLUSIVES

OUESSSANT HONEY
The quest for the most powerful bee products led Guerlain to Ouessant, one of the world’s purest ecosystems. Designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, this island off the coast of France is home to the Black Bee, a native species of the island. These bees produce a honey of unrivalled purity and truly exceptional properties: a “Grand Cru” honey.

GUERLAIN EXCLUSIVE ROYAL JELLY,100% HARVESTED IN FRANCE, 100% CONTROLLED, 100% NATURAL ORIGIN
To ensure that the Royal Jelly is of optimal quality and to guarantee complete traceability, Guerlain has chosen to host the 200 hives, exclusively dedicated to the ABEILLE ROYALE skincare range, in La Ferté Saint-Aubin in Sologne, a region renowned for its wild fauna.

DIRECTOR OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH, GUERLAIN

Guerlain's scientific research department works closely with leading experts in skin revitalization and ageing mechanisms to find ways to protect the skin from the effects of time and environmental factors such as UV rays, pollution, etc. And so, the fragility of the dermis and epidermis were the subject of our latest discoveries. Protecting and restoring the skin's tone and firmness, maintaining defined facial contours, ensuring a smooth, radiant appearance, and combating wrinkles and fine lines. Only with expert knowledge of the skin, drawing on the most modern technologies, can these elements be brought together.

They promote the formation of micro-tears in the dermis, which cause wrinkles and reduced firmness. Thanks to our Research programme we have discovered that the mechanisms involved in the revitalization of micro-tears in the dermis are similar to those involved in the traditional revitalization of superficial lesions – of a greater or lesser degree – to the skin.
