Orchids retain their timeless mystery but science has unlocked many of the secrets of their cosmetic benefits, resulting in a deep body of knowledge. The Ecuadorian orchids selected for Soberbia cream are the natural fruit of that knowledge – the culmination of thousands of years of learning.

Beautiful, aphrodisiac and capable of combating the signs of ageing, the orchid has become known as ‘The Flower of Youth’.

Orchids have root tubers resembling the male sex organ and their name comes from the Greek ‘orkhis’, which means testicle. This is why they have long been associated with sexuality and have had a reputation as an aphrodisiac.

In ancient Greece, orchids were seen as a fertility symbol.

There are over 30,000 species of orchid around the world and more are still being discovered.

Herbalists used to hold auctions of newly discovered species in London and Liverpool and the amounts paid for some was the equivalent of the price of a mansion.

Orchids can live for hundreds of years and need eight or nine just to reach maturity
