Health Medicine – Saffron extract is a natural sunscreen

The results of studies have shown that the SPF of nano-liposomes containing saffron extract is significantly higher than the SPF of sunscreen,
and therefore saffron can act as a natural sunscreen.
Findings of Dr. Mahmoud Reza Jafari, a dermatologist and cosmetologist from the Faculty of Pharmacy,
Mashhad University of Medical Sciences,
show that safranal in saffron has a much greater sunscreen effect than the standard substance of homosexuals.
This study also indicates that the PF of safranal component in saffron with a concentration of half a percent and one percent is significantly
larger than the SPF of the standard sunscreen of homosalate with a concentration of 8 percent.
Also, using nano-liposomes containing safranal in saffron, high SFP can be achieved with very low concentrations.
In addition, to increase the effect of sunscreen products, this natural compound can be used in low concentrations.
Saffron is used in traditional medicine as an antispasmodic, anti-cold, nerve and anti-flatulence and windbreaker, antiperspirant, expectorant,
stimulant, appetite suppressant and tonic.
The whole extract of saffron stigmas as well as its main components crocin and safranal have anti-tumor effects both inside and outside the body.
Saffron stigma has anti-cancer effects in various in vitro and in vivo models and has also inhibited skin cancer in animal models.
On the other hand, saffron has the ability to absorb ultraviolet rays.
