The Imperial Oil is a concentration of 20 precious botanical oils selected by Guerlain Research specifically for their medicinal properties, the benefits of which have been recognized for thousands of years. Maison Guerlain has matched its unique, historical formulation and expertise with a duo of orchids, using an exclusive process, to create an oil whose effectiveness is scientifically proven. The Orchid, a rare and precious raw ingredient, is the very essence of the exceptional complete care range Orchidee Imperiale. 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 mission of this International Research Center on the Orchid and skin longevity is to discover, understand, study and explore the potential of orchids and their biological and cosmetic properties to benefit its research on skin longevity. Guerlain Research runs three interrelated and complementary centres: The Experimental Garden — Geneva (Switzerland) A greenhouse where a collection of Guerlain orchids is housed in order to study and identify the most remarkable species. The Basic Research Laboratory — Strasbourg (France) The first basic research unit dedicated to the study of orchids and the identification and analysis of longevity molecules. The Exploratory Nature Reserve — TianZi (Yunnan, China) A nature reserve - a pillar of biodiversity and conservation - where wild orchids are protected and reintroduced into their natural environment.
