The year 2020 marks the 10th anniversary since French skin care, cosmetics, and fragrance brand Guerlain launched the iconic Abeille Royale collection. It began when Guerlain's research team travelled the world in search of the most effective bee products and discovered a rare gem.
Off the coast of Brittany in France is the idyllic island of Quessant, a UNESCO biosphere reserve with a protected ecosystem that is free from pesticides and parasites. There, hives of black bees produce outstanding quality honey, packed with amino acids and high in fructose content. This superior honey is the ingredient that Guerlain uses to power its Abeille Royale collection.
Fore more than a decade, Guerlain Research worked with tissue repair specialists to explore the similarities between scar healing and repairing the signs of aging, and the role that bee products can play in this. As a result, it developed the BlackBee Repair Technology.
Abeille Royale uses the unique power of bees to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, protect the skin’s surface and boost radiance, using the prized Ouessant honey alongside an exclusive royal jelly, carefully developed by Guerlain to ensure maximum quality. The very best ingredients, straight from the honeycomb itself.
Its exceptional texture, honeyed colors, and nectar fragrance lets each Abeille Royale product give you a unique skin treatment without compromising efficiency.
The super-luxe range is filled with elixirs that will forever transform your skin-care routine. The Abeille Royale beauty ritual highlights three steps: fortify, replump, and resculpt. Complete with a beautiful scent and color, each product improves the look of the skin from first application.
A true beauty hero, thanks to its ground-breaking oil-in-water formula, the Youth Watery Oil feels light and fresh on the skin, yet delivers a rich blend of Ouessant black bee honey, royal jelly, and myrrh for the ultimate age-defying treatment. Clinical assessments of the product show improvements in skin texture and barrier protection, increased radiance, plumpness, and elasticity after just one month.
Meanwhile, the Double R Renew & Repair Serum, which combines two powerful skin-renewing and repairing technologies in one bottle, improves firmness and elasticity. Meanwhile, it has a trio of AHAs that work together to gently deliver a "new skin effect," refining skin texture and restoring radiance.
By using both products, you will notice a lifted, radiant, and youthful-looking skin.
Another powerful pair is Abeille Royale's Day Cream and Night Cream. The fragrance of this two creams is hypnotic, with a sun-drenched nectar of fresh and honeyed scents.
The Day Cream is infused with Vitamin C to visibly enhance the radiance of your complexion, while the decadent Night Cream helps correct signs of wrinkles and loss of firmness. It also contains Vitamin E that targets elastin in the skin and helps restore tone, firmness, and elasticity.
Since the Abeille Royale line harnesses the power of nature to deliver impressive skin-care results, Guerlain is likewise committed to respecting and supporting the natural environment through responsible processes.
With more than a decade of research and sponsorship with the Brittany Black Bee Conservation Society in Oessant maintaining biodiversity and promoting pollination, Guerlain has pledged to ensure all products are eco-designed by 2020. All Abeille Royale products are now packaged using 90% recycled glass, and the house also aims to halve its carbon footprint by 2020.
