THE BLACKIMMUNE™ TECHNOLOGY: A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO SKIN SELF-DEFENSE
The Black Orchid¹ gives birth to BlackImmune™ technology. This technology targets 95% of the epidermal cells involved in the skin's self-defense². Each application, the skin becomes stronger and more resistant to external aggressions. Continuously protected, skin can thus devote all its resources to its rejuvenation, 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.
¹Cycnoches cooperi cultivée. ²In vitro test ingredients.
A RARE, POWERFUL, ENDURING ORCHID
Native to the peruvian Andes, the Black Orchid¹ is an ebony-colored 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 optimizes its longevity, embodying a real talisman against time.

A GESTURE BASED ON GUERLAIN SPA EXPERTISE
When applying products, first breathe in deeply and when you’ve finished, breathe out while exerting pressure.
Step 1: apply The Orchidée Impériale Black Eye and Lip Contour Cream with the pads of your fingers. Then stimulate the eyes using the expert massage tool with its refreshing effect. Step 2: drip a few drops of The Symbioserum into the palm of the hand. Use fingertips to gently massage the skin, starting at the centre of the face and working outwards. Move up and round to help the serum penetrate (go all over twice). Step 3: apply The Orchidée Impériale Black Cream, then perform a massage using the expert tool. The two little rollers glide perfectly smoothly over facial curves.
