The story

Coffee, a popular taste all over the world

Coffea arabica, Rubiaceae

Very recently discovered, coffee is a shrub with little short-lived white flowers, born in Ethiopia and in the South tropical Africa, it used to live in the shadow under high trees between 500 and 1600 m. Arabica is the most ancient sort of coffee, it was placed in the XVth century in Arabia, then cultivated by Dutch people in the XVIIth century. Its name comes from arabian « qahwa » or « gahwa ». But the word Moka comes from the harbour located in the North Yemen. Cultivated in monoculture, coffee is first dedicated to be prepared as a universal drink. It contains coffeine, an alcaloid, which is a heart booster. It has also diuretic and analgesic properties. Coffee is a rich plant: grains contain essential oils, glucose, proteins and vitamin PP too.

The story

Saffron, the most precious spice in the world

Crocus sativus, Iridaceae

Saffron is a cultivated plant which grows in an oppposite time than other plants because it flowers in fall. It doesn’t grow in nature because it multiplicates itself by the division of bulbs and not with seeds. With Eastern origin, it has spread in the whole Meditteranean area. It is a plant with ancient medicinal and culinary uses, cultivated since Antiquity in East and West. It is also the most expensive spice in the world (up to 8000 USD/kg). Used for its aroma in meals and sauces, also for its colour, it has become a tinctorial plant well known and used not only for textils, in painting, but also in make-up (in India and in Morocco for example).

How it works ?

Light&Energy Coffee & Saffron acts at the level of epidermis on three main activities: the production of energy, respiration and oxidation. First, it boosts the production of global cell energy, that improves cell respiration: it relaunches the synthesis of ATP, the energy form that is necessary to skin cells, at the level of mitochondria - the organits which degrade sugars to make energy. Second, it protects epidermis against oxidation, the physiological and the induced - by UV rays - ones, by limiting the creation of free radicals. And free radicals lead to deletorious effects in long and short terms.

Thanks to those actions, skin cells can get a level of activity enough to perform all their functions, including those limited by ageing.
