When precious nature meets cutting edge regenerating science,
it gives birth to the quintessence of premium skincare – Absolue.
Discover the power of the rose.
Since the Middle Ages, in Europe it has been a symbol of exquisite femininity, splendor, passion. Poets have lauded it, artists have
painted it, botanists have referenced and illustrated it.
Rounded of bloom and curved of stem, the rose became Lancome founder Armand Petitjean’s inspiration, in his belief that a woman is, like a rose, poised to bloom.
The Centifolia roses used in Absolue are grown on the Plateau de Valensole by Madame Emmanuelle Ravel. A third generation French farmer, driven by her values of passion and generosity, she watches closely over the rose fields all year round, organizing the harvest of roses by hand at the end of May each year.
Each rose petal then undergoes a precise method of hydrodistillation – drop by drop, the rose essential oil that possesses regenerating and soothing action as proven by the Lancome Research and Innovation team, is extracted. The precious rose extract embodies 150 petals in a single drop.
The Lancôme Rose, the Centifolia, the Damascena -- each Absolue creation uses a number of different rose extracts that are carefully selected and magnified through the use of Lancôme’s signature processes. The result of this avant-garde science? Exceptional skin regeneration, to which each Rose extract brings its own unique facet.
