ALL OF ORCHIDÉE IMPÉRIALE'S TECHNOLOGY

1. Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract Gold Orchid Technology
A source of youth, Imperial Orchid Molecular Extract (I.O.M.E.) boosts epidermal cell regeneration* thanks to the Gold Orchid, a new orchid with an extraordinary vital energy. Gold Orchid joins the three remarkable orchids – selected from amongst 30,000 species – in I.O.M.E.: this new orchid is unique in its ability to energize cell fertility*, the key to the skin's youthfulness and beauty.
New Gold Orchid technology acts on a new longevity target* – cell fertility, governed by mother cells, which plays a key role in skin construction and regeneration. The skin's regenerative dynamic is reactivated via a new action pathway – cellular bioenergetics.
2. White Orchid ExtractA concentrate of light, it fosters even skin with every passing day.
The complexion is pure and glowing. To prevent the appearance of pigmentation marks and the signs of ageing at an early stage, White Orchid Extract soothes the skin's sensitivity by inhibiting inflammation mediators*. It slows the dynamics of pigmentation processes by acting ahead of the key stages in melanogenesis*. It helps to improve translucency and surface luminosity by acting on the five key encoding genes* responsible for hydration, intercellular cohesion, renewal, proliferation and the cellular differentiation/renewal balance. These mechanisms control the skin's optical properties. * In vitro tests on ingredients
