Hoyer Family Saffron
Hoyer Family Saffron is a family-owned business passionate about quality saffron, saffron-infused skincare, and supplements. Our saffron is excellent for cold and hot tea, golden milk, yellow rice, and several saffron-infused recipes.
Of the many skincare ingredients on the market today, saffron is rarely commended for its skin-boosting benefits. Enter House of M Beauty, where they harness the power of this highly potent antioxidant to help brighten, calm and protect your skin.
House of M’s passion for powerful ingredients stems from their experience as moms, where they are familiar with time constraints and the need for multitasking formulas. With the right ingredients, they can develop multitasking and effective formulas — no need for multiple products!
THE NATURE OF SAFFRON
Saffron is derived from the flower of Crocus. It blooms only once a year for a few weeks in the fall, making the supply of saffron extremely scarce and costly. Each bloom from the Crocus produces just three styles that end with a crimson-red stigma that must be harvested on the exact day that the flower blooms. Only following an essential and specialty harvesting process where each saffron flower is handpicked can we produce the final product. At the end of the season, demand consistently exceeds supply. Today, these red strands are recognized as one of the most expensive spices globally and celebrated for all their power.
THE BENEFITS OF SAFFRON
Saffron is packed with antioxidants, including vitamin C and vitamin A, holding anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that play a massive role in your age defense regimen. As an antioxidant ingredient, saffron fights damage from free radicals, as vitamin C helps to brighten the skin. Meanwhile, its high vitamin content helps to improve and reduce pesky hyperpigmentation and signs of acne and blemishes. Saffron is also rich in minerals, which protects the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays, free radicals, and environmental stressors. The result is younger-looking skin thanks to increased elasticity and softness.
THE TYPES OF SAFFRON
There are five different types of saffron that all vary in quality. Hoyer Family Saffron and House of M rely on premium Super Negin, which has the most nutritional value for creating our products. Recognized as saffron’s most expensive and rare trim, Super Negin is hand-picked and dried the same day to capture the most nutritional value possible. That means Super Negin is the most potent, aromatic, and aesthetically pleasing section of the saffron thread of all. Super Negin is meticulously sorted to include no yellow or orange threads and symmetric trimmed for maximum length. Quality saffron has specific properties that every person can notice, including looking for saffron with ISO certification. Three main compounds contribute to saffron potency: Crocin, which is the color strength; Picocrocin, which is the flavor strength; and Safranal, the aroma strength. All these compounds can be laboratory tested with ISO 3632-2 method to measure quality and potency. These attributes make Super Negin the most desired saffron product in the world.
