A BOTANICAL TREASURE.

SOLIDAGO VIRGAUREA

  • Natural habitat: the rocky slopes of the French Alps. Grows at an altitude of 1,400 to 1,800 meters.
  • Flowering season: July to October.
  • Characteristics: yellow flower. Highly adaptable to stress and to Alpine conditions.
  • Properties: soothing, stimulating, toning.

Identified amongst 500 plants tested by CHANEL Research, solidago extract (from the Latin "to consolidate") reinforces the cellular dynamic of skin. This key ingredient is the heart of SUBLIMAGE L’Essence Fondamentale.

OPEN-SKY LABORATORIES

At the foot of the French Southern Alps, CHANEL has created an open-sky laboratory inspired by 17th-century French medicinal gardens, the birthplace of botanical science. Here, CHANEL cultivates and researches wild medicinal plants of the region.

Fascinated by the many benefits of natural solidago extract and its ability to withstand harsh Alpine conditions, CHANEL Research tested the extract on skin. The scientific innovation is patented* by CHANEL: Natural solidago** extract has the power to restore vitality. Combined with the protective antioxidant properties of intense Vanilla Planifolia water, it generates a new vital force.

*Patent application in Europe, United States and Japan.
**Exclusive CHANEL active ingredient.
