In 2006, following seven years of research of orchids and their power over cellular longevity, Guerlain created the first generation of Orchidée Impériale care creams. Since the launch of the Orchidée Impériale, the range has undergone several formula updates including the most recent addition of Gold Orchid technology.
In 2016, Imperial Orchid goes even further with the creation of Orchidée Impériale Black. Through a revolutionary technology than involves "cellular immunity", the new Orchidée Impériale Black aims to optimize the self-defense capabilities of the skin.
Guerlain presents Blackimmune™ technology, its first technology to address skin aging by acting on the set of cells involved in the self-defense mechanisms of the skin. It relays on the two types of defense system that skin naturally posses and that enable it to fight against the various factors responsible for aging: Keratinocytes and Langerhans cells.
Orchidée Impériale Black Cream is a light, soft and elegant formula that surrounds every cell in a deluxe protective cocoon, consisting of a combination of highly moisturizing elements to help maintain flexibility and comfort of the skin. With rich cupuaçu butter and jojoba wax, it works with other ingredients to melt into the skin without it feeling greasy. With regular application, the skin regains its resilience; its defensive barrier becomes stronger and more resistant.
Quality, touch, appearance - all the criteria of a beautiful skin are said to improve day by day: wrinkles and blemishes fade, the skin texture is refined, the complexion illuminates, the contour of the face is better defined. Perfectly nourished and hydrated, the skin is firmer, more elastic, and incredibly radiant.
To make each application a unique experience, the experts of the Guerlain Institute have designed and tested a new 4- steps application tool inspired by ergonomic touch-roll. Equipped with two mini rollers (easily removable for cleaning after each use), this tool fits more closely the curves of the face, operating a massage into the heart of the skin.
La Crème Orchidée Impériale Black will be available in a 50 ml jar at the price of 980€ from October 2016.Advertisement
