CHANEL releases the first chapter in a series of films dedicated to the House’s world of skincare. “Beyond the Jar” is a series celebrating the expertise of CHANEL Research and the passion that drives the scientists who design the skincare products. It authentically explores the innovation, vision and expertise behind the development of each product.


The first chapter is dedicated to a plant that CHANEL has been studying for a number of years: Vanilla Planifolia. At the heart of SUBLIMAGE skincare, this vanilla is used for its skin-regenerating properties. It is carefully cultivated and grown by passionate artisans in its natural environment, and then our Paris-based researchers study it in detail to extract precious active molecules and reveal their benefits for the skin. Thus, thanks to customized technological processes, unique, pure and powerful active ingredients are created and can be found in our exceptional formulas.


For CHANEL researchers, both scientific and creative spirits go hand in hand.
