Saffron, one of the world’s most expensive spices, has long been treasured for its versatile applications in food, drink and traditional herbal medicine. It has been used as food flavoring, a fragrance, a dye and as a Medicine for centuries.
India, Spain, Greece and Iran were some of the original cultivators of the saffron crocus vegetation and continue to be the major growers and producers of this valuable spice. The brilliant red threads have been used in ayurvedic formulations for centuries, with miraculous results.
At Vedaya, we have continued using the same ancient, time-tested knowledge for creating a miraculous elixir for the skin using Saffron, also known as KUMKUMADI. A blend of saffron and other ayurvedic herbs with proven qualities of lightening and brightening the skin have been brought together in this Special formulation.
Based on knowledge from ancient texts, our R & D team further researched all the individual ingredients. It is now proven that Saffron contains the enzyme tyrosinase, which inhibits the synthesis of melanin. Lotus seed extract helps aged skin to bounce back, halt the effects of ageing and gives skin a more youthful appearance. More recently, studies have shown that it inhibits the sun-induced changes in the structure of the skin.
Licorice is considered a superior balancing or harmonizing agent and is added to herbal formulas Licorice extract has special anti-oxidant properties which enhances the stability of other compounds when added to a topical dermatological cream. Its anti-oxidant property protects skin against damage caused by free-radicals and reactive oxygen species. Modern research suggests that DNA damage caused by ultra-violet rays and subsequent synthesis of melanin can now be reversed with a careful skin regimen.
