Blanc de Perle for an Exceptionally Pure and Eternally Guerlain Complexion
A Cosmetic Fable
At the origin of beauty lies a beauty perfectly smooth luminous drop. Purer than any woman has ever set eyes on: a pearl with totally hypnotic shimmering and irisdescent reflections. Its captivating aura never ceased to fascinate researchers all over the world who, century after century, attempted to decipher its secret: that of eternal purity. Guerlain Research, a modern-day alchemist, has succeeded in capturing this irisdescence this imperceptible light, to restore its unmatched purity in a skincare and makeup line named Blanc de Perle. So that each woman in search of excellence can see her face shimmer with light and unparallel radiance.
The Pearl, a Guerlain heritage
Guerlain had foreseen the inalterable and unique power of the pearl as early as the 19th century. Its museum still houses the age-old formula of Lotion Blanc de Perle, which Parisian women came to buy in the first Guerlain boutique on Rue de Rivoli in 1830. In 1987, inspired by the science of white light, Guerlain Research amazed the makeup world with a powder presented in coloured pearls, Meteorites, which envelop the skin in magical research. This product was an instant and eternal success.
In 2011, Guerlain writes a new original chapter in its beauty vision. Its advanced research led it to attain the absolute of extreme whiteness and translucency. With its Blanc de Perle skincare and makeup line, Guerlain offers the skin an exceptional beauty routine that ranges from the skincare ritual to the final touch of makeup.
Guerlain, on the cutting edge of research
Legend has it that pearl necklaces must be worm regularly to maintain their unique aura. Without the skin, the dazzle of the pearl fades. And, without the power of the pearl, the skin loses its natural radiance. Guerlain researchers concentrated their work on its sacred relationship, based on the latest scientific breakthroughs isolating the missing link at the origin of pigmentation disorders, darks spots and loss of radiance: the ZO-I protein. A lack of this protein within the skin disorganises the skin cells, and disturbs the natural elimination melanin grains during cell renewal. Melanin is trapped and stored within the skin, causing visible dark spots on the skin's surface. To compensate this lack of the ZO-I protein, Guerlain research reveals the unique whitening power of the pearl by creating a new original technology: the PEARL Complex (Pearl Extract Activity on Skin Regulation and Luminosity).
The PEARL Complex acts on two levels:
INSIDE Melanocytes: it reduces melanin production at the source by 49%
INSIDE Keratinocytes: where classic technologies simply accelerate cell renewal, the PEARL complex completely reorganises the skin to allow for the total elimination of melanin. By restoring an optimal concentration of the ZO-I protein (+412% stimulation), it frees the epidermis from melanin, layer after layer. Dark spots fade away. The skin regains the perfection and deep rich radiance of the pearl.
Guerlain creates four original whiteness-creating instruments
In 2012, Guerlain enriches its sumptuous Blanc de Perle range with four new expert innovative tools. A dropper, a single dose, an elliptic roll-on and a double action stylus: real instrucments. These instruments are used in an original beauty routine to unleash their whitening expertise after cleansing, when the skin is most prepared to receive their whitening power. Like surgeons of light, they sculpt and enhance the skin's texture and free the skin of all shadows to reveal its translucency and immaculate whiteness. For daily use or as an intensive programme, Blanc de Perle lights up the complexion with a new cosmetic dimension, while remaining gentle and respecting the skin.
