Poppy (flower)

A delicate wild flower, the poppy dots fields and roads with its flamboyant red and gracious form. Its beauty has been a source of inspiration for many artists. In the language of flowers, poppy incarnates consolation, repose and tranquility. According to mythology, Morpheus touched those he wanted to send to sleep with a poppy flower. Infusions made from poppy petals are recommended for insomnia.

The poppy petal extract used by Doux me is rich in mucilage to preserve the skin’s softness and moisture. The red pigments (flavonoids) have an antioxidant function to prevent skin aging while rhoeadine (alkaloid) soothes delicate skin.
