The Rich Cleansing Foam:

Enriched with the exceptional moisturising power of the new Orchid Essential Water complex, coupled with the regenerative power of Cell Respiration™ technology, the Rich Cleansing Foam is an essential stage of the Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Complete Care ritual.

With a pH close to that of the skin (pH 6.3), this delicate, creamy foam cleanses and purifies. It preserves the skin’s balance and hydration, offering exceptional efficacy and comfort. Free from impurities and microparticles of pollution, the skin is soft and supple, its texture refined, and the complexion radiant and glowing.

Consisting of an aqueous extract of orchid combined with low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, this complex moisturises and boosts the natural hydration of the skin deep inside.
Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is made up of tiny fragments that the skin perceives as a deterioration in its own hyaluronic acid. The skin responds by activating its own hyaluronic acid synthesis and boosting its self-hydration mechanism from the inside*.

For 15 years, Guerlain Research has been pushing back the frontiers of cellular longevity. Now it has identified a new mechanism that plays a key role in longevity: cellular respiration. More effective thanks to the discovery of the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, new Cell Respiration™ technology delivers superior efficacy inside the skin. It regulates cellular respiration and combats hypoxia* or oxygen deficiency, a phenomenon that increases with age. The cells can breathe again and maximise energy production which boosts cell regeneration*. All the visible signs of ageing are minimised: wrinkles and fine lines fade, the skin regains firmness, density and elasticity, the complexion is even and more radiant. The skin is infused with a breath of life.

The first step in the Imperial Ritual, the Rich Cleansing Foam is applied morning and evening before the Essence-in-Lotion.

In the palm of your hand, work up a small amount of gel into a lather with a little water. Apply to the entire face avoiding the eye contour area and massage in, making invigorating circular movements with the fleshy part of the fingers, then using the palms to sweep over the cheeks and forehead. Rinse with clear water.

The Essence-in-Lotion:

The Essence-in-Lotion is the first step in Guerlain’s Orchidée Impériale complete age-defying ritual. It is enriched with the new Orchidée Essential Water complex, coupled with the regenerative power of Cell Respiration™ technology.

Combining the freshness and delicacy of a lotion with the roundness and power of an essence, the Essence-in-Lotion possesses a unique sense-enriching quality typical of Guerlain skincare.
With remarkable efficacy, it intensively moisturises and boosts the natural hydration of the skin deep inside. Perfectly plumped, the skin is smooth, supple, soft and radiant, ready to receive the beneficial effects of the Imperial Ritual.

Enriched with the new Orchid Essential Water complex, the Essence-in-Lotion combines the comprehensive age-defying efficacy of Orchidée Impériale with optimum hydration.
Consisting of an aqueous extract of orchid combined with low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, this complex moisturises and boosts the natural hydration of the skin deep inside.

The Essence-in-Lotion has an incredibly fine, light texture and reveals plumped, smoother and visibly more beautiful skin.
