saffron flower extract

Crocus sativus pistil (Saffron) is not only a wonderful spice known for its subtle and delicate taste in cooking, but it is also a magic flower used in cosmetics, especially for skin and hair care.

The analyses of saffron flower show that it contains numerous antioxidants (crocin and safranal in particular), as well as various vitamins and minerals (iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B9). Potassium plays a role in the regulation of the water content of the cells, thus participating in their hydration.

It is possible to make a homemade cosmetic or mask with Saffron flower extract and to mix it with other ingredients such as honey, rose water, yogurt, etc.

For dry skins, it is possible to add to Crocus sativus extract, aloe vera or argan oil or almond oil for example.

For oily skins, it is possible to add rose water or a mixture of organic lemon and organic yogurt with whole milk. Thanks to lactic acid, yogurt helps to gently exfoliate the skin, it also helps to regulate excess sebum. On the other hand, yogurt does not keep long, so make a one-time use mask with yogurt by reducing the amount of saffron.

So, ready and willing to have a sublime skin thanks to saffron flower extract?
