Incorporating Orchid Noble Light™ Technology and moringa extract, the complete age-defying brightening formula prevents skin-ageing and the appearance of dark spots.
A perfect combination of pigments and micro-pearls instantly unifies skin tone and brings out the natural radiance of all complexions with a subtle matte effect.
From the moment of application, the skin is perfectly unified, luminous and protected. Day after day, the skin appears visibly younger and lastingly radiant.
Orchidée Impériale fragrance: a floral scent with hints of orchid that blend with notes of rose, white musk and precious cedar wood.
Orchidée Impériale Brightening: the power to erase shadows accumulated over the years and restore the skin's youthful radiance
Because young-looking skin also comes from an even, luminous complexion, Orchidée Impériale Brightening treatments combine the complete age-defying efficacy of Cell Respiration™ Technology with the illuminating power of Orchid Noble Light™ Technology.
Guerlain Research draws on the latest discoveries in epigenetics to address the essential causes of complexion ageing and the appearance of dark spots (age, environment and lifestyle): Orchid Noble Light™ Technology acts on two key microRNAs that control the production of melanin and boost collagen production. In this way, it prevents the phenomenon of hyperpigmentation at source and improves the skin's structure*.

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®. The Research Centre is made up of three complementary centres run by Guerlain Research:
- The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland)
- The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France)
- The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China)
Orchidée Impériale Brightening treatments incorporate a precious orchid –- Dendrobium nobile. To preserve this rare species, the Orchidarium employs a painstaking specialist cell culture technique to extract the initial cell of the orchid. The initial cell, the first native cell, is as yet undifferentiated, remaining pure and unaltered. A first in cosmetics.
