Coriander (Coriandrum sativum L.) is an annual herbaceous plant originally from the eastern Mediterranean and has spread to India, China and the rest of the world. It is commonly used as a condiment or a spice. The fruit is used in traditional medicine to treat various pathologies such as indigestion, worms, rheumatism and joint pain. Indeed, coriander has been shown to have a wide range of properties (antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, appetite stimulant, aromatic, diuretic, refrigerant, stimulant, stomach pain control, tonicity, etc.).
Coriander fruits are particularly interesting because they contain both a vegetable oil and an essential oil fraction.
The fraction of vegetable oil resulting from an innovative extraction (allowing to preserve a characteristic very fragrant) will make it possible to integrate the composition of many cosmetic or pharmaceutical products as well as in food supplements.
Produced in the South-West of France, this new production could perfectly integrate the rotation of the farmers and generate added value on the farms as a contractual traced culture. By combining the capacity of the two cooperative groups Maïsadour and Vivadour to produce and process this new production and the research force of the LCA (Toulouse Agroindustrial Chemistry Laboratory) in order to develop an innovative transformation process, this work program should allow the marketing of an ingredient for industrialists in search of novelty.
this oil is recognized for its nutra-cosmetic and cosmetic actions for topical use (I think it is the latter that may catch your attention):
- moisturizing action on the skin and scalp,
- treatment of dry skin (dermatology),
- treatment of sensitive and reactive skin:
To prevent and / or reduce the sensations of discomfort resulting from sensitive or reactive skin, and in particular the sensations of itching, pruritus, tingling, tingling, itching, tightness.
- skin irritation and inflammation phenomena:
Its use against inflammations related to psoriasis, erythema (sunburn), eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, alopecia areata, mycosis, acne or other dermatoses, for example have been the subject of publications .
