Orchidée Impériale Light Cream is an exceptional complete treatment that helps regenerate the visible signs of time. After more than 15 years of research dedicated to the prodigious powers of orchids on the longevity of the skin, it offers a new feat: high regeneration drawn from the roots of a new duo of prodigious orchids.

This power, captured from deep in their roots to the top of the plant, is concentrated in the new Orchid Totum™ molecular extract. It helps activate and, for the first time, prolong skin cell longevity¹. Highly regenerated, highly redensified, the visible signs of aging are reduced. The skin is visibly younger, for a long time. In its light version, the cream is composed of a duo of hyaluronic acids and enriched with a latest generation hydration activator. The latter promotes the natural self-hydration of the skin continuously all day long, for water-soaked skin that ideally reflects light. Its ultra-fresh and ultra-fine texture blends immediately, without a greasy effect.

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. Learn about our work in Yunnan on

The Orchidarium revealed the extraordinary powers of a duo of orchids, including Gastrodia elata, an orchid essential to traditional Chinese medicine.


Guerlain Research now adds precious diamond powder to the new Orchidée Impériale light Cream formula. This rare raw material is able to capture light energy and diffuse it in all directions thanks to the ""faceted"" nature of diamond. The result is an instant sophisticated radiance.


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 new breath of life.
