To discover the story of Saffron, it is essential to embark on a journey to the breathtakingly beautiful High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Here, a rare ephemeral product of nature lies cocooned within the delicate mauve petals of a tiny flower. Saffron, or Za’faran in Arabic, prized for millennia. As coveted as gold, the medicinal properties of saffron are mentioned as early as 1550 BC in Egyptian papyrus. Stimulating, rejuvenating, saffron has been used to clarify the complexion, improve circulation, reduce pain and lift the spirits. The Romans mixed saffron into ointments, balms and perfumes. Alexander the Great bathed in warm baths infused with saffron to heal his wounds. For Cleopatra, a saffron-milk bath was an aphrodisiac, enveloping her skin in a golden glow.
Based on their expertise in Glycobiology the YSL•SKINSCIENCE has undertaken a vast program to identify plant extracts. After intensive investigation over many years screening plants known to be rich in Glycans, the YSL•SKINSCIENCE selected the pistil of Saffron.
The YSL•SKINSCIENCE highlighted one specific compound out of 150, a glycan unique to the Saffron pistil, known as "crocin". This glycan has powerful properties and works in a unique way that can be harnessed to benefit the skin. YSL uses only the Pistil of Saffron from the High Atlas for its high concentration of Glycans thanks to the altitude. The YSL•SKINSCIENCE created an innovative complex: OR ROUGE GFC™*, composed of a concentration of Glycans, helps on skin quality and uniformity and promotes natural skin’s protection against free radicals.
*Glycan Fraction Concentrate
The CROCINE GFC™ is a carefully dosed composition integrated by YSL in an Exceptional Global Skincare line able to defy the 11 signs of aging.
The OR ROUGE ritual targets: Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Smile lines & Roughness for a Supreme Resurfacing. Firmness, Sagging & Elasticity for a Fundamental Remodeling. Skintone Uniformity, Dullness, Pores, Dark Spots & Translucency for an Ultimate Radiance.
