The ultimate regenerating power of Vanilla Planifolia radiates from the heart of this line for exceptional complete anti-aging skincare.
It all began on the island of Madagascar, one of the richest biodiversity reserves in the world. On this preserved land, CHANEL scientists intuitively knew that they could find the key to a unique anti-aging skincare product. They investigated the nature and observed the vegetation. They listened to the inhabitants and discovered a legendary plant, known for its extraordinary regenerating properties: Vanilla Planifolia, vanilla from Madagascar. Created by nature and crafted by CHANEL, it is now at the heart of SUBLIMAGE.
An anti-aging treasure
Amongst 117 varieties of vanilla from all over the world, Vanilla Planifolia was selected for its exceptional concentration of active anti-aging molecules. It is grown in the region of Ambanja, using an unprecedented cultivation method that recreates the natural shade of the forest in perfect temperature and humidity conditions.
For the fruits: pollination is done entirely by hand, calyx by calyx.
For the flowers: they are carefully gathered by hand.
The harvest takes place in harmony with the seasons.
It takes 60,000 green fruits and 14,000 fresh flowers to produce 1 kg of Enriched Planifolia, the natural active ingredient of SUBLIMAGE.
Using the expertise of CHANEL Research, all of the regenerating power of Vanilla Planifolia is concentrated in the original molecular combined blend of two polyfractioned active ingredients. One extracted from the fruit and the other from the flower.
The raw fruit and flower extracts are first refined and purified separately, using a "scientific crafting" process exclusive to CHANEL: polyfractioning.
Then, a series of over 20 operations are required to create the recombined active quintessence of the fruit and flower. This ensures the exceptional power of Planifolia PFA, the enriched active ingredient of SUBLIMAGE that acts on all signs of aging.
Global anti-ageing treatment with an absolute power of revitalisation.
