The poppy is one of the most abundant and popular flowers in the world! The ancient Egyptians and Greeks used these flowers to relieve pain and soothe inflammation. In 13th century Arab medicine, it was used to calm coughs. Poppy is still regarded by many as a natural remedy for pain relief, being considerably milder and generally harmless in contrast to conventional medications.
Poppy contains several alkaloids that have sedative properties, helping to calm and relax the mind.
Studies show that the use of poppy petals in cosmetics increases the expression of hyaluronic acid in the skin. It has a densifying activity of the papillary dermis. Maintains a good structure of the dermoepidermal junction. It significantly increases the expression of HA in the epidermis (+ 19%) and in the papillary dermis (+ 33%). Poppy is suggested for use in anti-wrinkle, skin hydration, and other skin care products.
It is rich in alkaloids, which is why it stands out for its properties to activate circulation. In addition, another of its compounds acts as a vasoprotector.
