The orchid, wonder of longevity

At the origins of Guerlain's exceptional complete care, a fascinating flower playing with time: the orchid. Queen in the plant kingdom, it possesses prodigious longevity mechanisms, some even live to be a hundred years. Convinced of its infinite potential for the skin, Guerlain created, more than fifteen years ago, the first research centre ever dedicated to an ingredient: the Orchidarium®. Experts have identified a prodigious duo of orchids selected out of 30,000 species and concentrated their power in high repleneshing technologies.

THE CELL RESPIRATION™ TECHNOLOGY

The Rich Cream is enriched with the Cell Respiration™ technology which concentrates the exceptional replenishing power drawn from an extraordinary duo of orchids. It helps regulate cellular respiration, fight oxygen deficiency and improve skin revitalisation¹. Signs of ageing are visibly improved. The orchids' longevity power is completed by precious Abyssinian oil. It is extracted from the seeds of the Crambe abyssinica plant in an eco-friendly process. Rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, it also features remarkable lipid-replenishing properties, and provides a silky-smooth finish.

¹In vitro test on ingredients.

A PRECIOUS AND SUSTAINABLE CASE

True to Guerlain's commitment to environmental excellence, the Rich Cream's jar combines lightness and refinement. Less raw material and enlightened glass.With this technical progress, the jar's weight has been reduced by 60% and the carbon print by 57%¹ compared to last generation.

¹Calculated by the life cycle analysis method. The evaluation takes into account the nature of the materials, the origin and the manufacturing process of the components, their transport and the transport of the finished product.

THE REPLENISHING PROTOCOL INSPIRED BY GUERLAIN SPAS' FACIALIST EXPERTISE

Experts at the Guerlain Institute have developed an exclusive technique which, combines professional massage with breathing exercises to maximise the benefits of the Rich Cream. This unique sensory experience is also an opportunity to spend quality time reconnecting with yourself, to restore harmony and inner balance.
1- Before application: Breathe & prepare the skin
On a clean, dry face that has been previously washed with Orchidée Impériale Cleansing Foam, apply pressure slowly and firmly with the fleshy part of the fingers on the chin, the corner of the mouth, under the nose, between the eyebrows, above the arch of the eyebrows and at the level of the temples. Breathe in as you press and breathe out on release.
2- Applying the Rich Cream: Smooth
After applying your lotion and serum, take some cream with the spatula and apply with the fleshy part of the fingers to the chin, cheeks, forehead and nose, taking care to smooth the skin outwards from the middle of the face.
3- After application:
ENERGISE
Clench your fists and place them on your cheeks. Pressing firmly, work upwards with a rotational movement while breathing out forcibly. Repeat on the jawline, forehead, neck and finally the décolleté in time with the out-breath.
RELAX
Place your left hand on your forehead and your right hand on your right cheek. Gently slide both hands simultaneously towards the left around the contours of the face. At the same time, lean your head towards the left and breathe deeply. Do the same on the other side. Repeat three times.
