A saffron nutraceutical

Designed by the young Lyon-based brand Naali, Naali Collagen is a beauty or nutraceutical food supplement with type 1 and 2 marine collagen from sustainable fishing, designed to boost the production of internal collagen and protect it. 

For optimum effectiveness, it is combined with saffron to help stimulate its production, vitamin C and biotin, known to help maintain the skin's normal properties.

A mint-lime-flavored powder to be diluted in water, a drink or yoghurt, each daily dose (6.2 g) of Naali Collagen provides 5 g of Peptan F, type I marine collagen peptides, 500 mg of Cartydiss Skin, type II marine collagen peptides, 30 mg of Naali saffron extract, Vitamin C and Biotin (Vitamin B8). The Naali Collagen formula has been developed by Naali's Scientific Committee on the basis of clinical studies to effectively help reduce wrinkles, delay the signs of aging, improve skin firmness and elasticity, and maintain a state of overall skin health. (Recommended use: one dose per day.)

Saffron, the red thread of the Naali brand, is a natural ally for the skin thanks to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which help stimulate the production of collagen, the protein essential for maintaining healthy skin.

Pure saffron and an eco-responsible approach

Naali has selected a 100 % red saffron, category 1 from Afghanistan, which received the Superior Taste Award from iTQi. Grown under ethical conditions, this saffron is harvested by hand in the traditional way, once a year.

Peptan F and Cartydiss Skin marine collagen peptides are MSC-certified, i.e. from sustainable fisheries.

Safranotherapy: the science of well-being through saffron

Young Lyon-based brand Naali has positioned itself on the wellness market with a flagship ingredient: saffron. 

With the support of its scientific committee, the company aims to develop "safranotherapy": the science of well-being through saffron. 

This positive-impact brand - each product sold funds an hour's tuition for a young woman in Afghanistan - has launched anti-stress gummies for everyone, as well as a heavy-legged infusion for women, and offers pure saffron filaments, prized by Michelin-starred chefs. 

Naali plans to launch four new products in 2023, including dietary supplements and topical cosmetics, always using the purest red saffron from the high plateaus of Afghanistan and Morocco, certified category 1 ISO3662. 

Saffron: a natural beauty ally to boost collagen synthesis

Although primarily used in cooking for its flavor and color, saffron is also recognized for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help stimulate the production of collagen, an essential protein for maintaining healthy, youthful skin.

Saffron is rich in antioxidants, such as crocin and safranal, which can help protect skin from free radical damage.

It also contains anti-inflammatory compounds, such as crocetin, which can help reduce skin inflammation. When chronic, inflammation becomes a major cause of collagen degradation in the skin.

Finally, saffron's bioactive compounds, such as thiamine, riboflavin and ascorbic acid, can help stimulate collagen production in the skin, with visible benefits, as demonstrated by several studies*. Saffron would therefore be an ally in helping to stimulate collagen synthesis in the skin, thereby improving its firmness, texture and elasticity, and preventing the signs of aging.
