The power of saffron

Saffron strands are the tiny stems from the crocus sativus flower. These precious handpicked strands boast beneficial properties and contain calming and soothing properties, making it suitable for all skin types.

What can saffron do for you?

Protects and repairs. Saffron is rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, and has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It helps protect against UV damage, pollutants and free radical damage.

Brightens and evens: Saffron helps brighten the skin to deliver a more even complexion and a beautiful healthy glow, without harsh side effects, thanks to its wonderful calming qualities.

Reduces hyperpigmentation: Saffron helps gently fade the appearance of hyperpigmentation, thanks to its high vitamin content. This can be particularly helpful to those looking to fade dark spots and acne scarring.

Calms inflammation: Saffron's healing powers can help tame redness, inflamed skin, and acne. 

Helps skin recover from environmental stressors: Saffron is rich in minerals and contains two types of powerful carotenoids: crocin and crocetin. These carotenoids can be effective in repairing damage. They can help skin recover from daily environmental, oxidative stress, including sun damage.

Anti-aging: The carotenoid crocin, found in saffron is helpful against premature aging, thanks to its rich antioxidant power.

Heals and soothes: Studies have shown that saffron has the ability to increase cell turnover and production, which means it may help wounds heal faster. This can be especially helpful to those struggling with acne and inflammation. 

Great for sensitive skin: Anti-inflammatory ingredients like saffron are gentle and wonderful for those with sensitive skin.
