INGREDIENTS & SOURCING
The Ourika Gardens are also home to a botanical research area. This area is a source of inspiration for breakthrough skincare and makeup formulas. Here, YSL Beauty scientists identify the key benefits of their ingredients and look for ways to enhance and amplify their properties for the most potent and sustainable methods for their products. The Or Rouge Saffron distillate is a prime example of science-enhanced nature. With the research area, YSL Beauty is able to consistently improve and develop new formulas which then help expand the gardens’ botanical variety.
YSL Beauty has a pioneering vision of beauty and they keep that in mind at all stages in creating their products. While working on the innovative project of the Ourika Gardens, YSL Beauty is also building a committed and responsible sourcing model by lending the expertise of local communities to source authentic and sustainable ingredients such as the famous pistil of Saffron used in the premium Or Rouge range. Their sourcing model is firmly in line with sustainable development as they commit to reducing the environmental footprint of their products.
YSL Beauty believes that nature holds the key to the most powerful ingredients. To respect the environment, it selects these ingredients with the utmost care.
As the couture addict of today demands the most effective and cleanest of formulas, the formulations live up to this wish. Since 2018, even the fragrances have been re-created to reduce their environmental footprint.
Going even further, the new Or Rouge range comes in beautifully luxurious packaging, available with a refillable element.
