Safflower

INCI: Carthamus tinctorius seed oil

Overview

Safflower contains a pigment called carthamin, which is a yellow-orange colour. On closer examination it is shown to contain two natural colourants, one yellow, the other red. The seeds yield an oil and the flowers give a yellow dye. Carthamin produces a water-insoluble red dye and carthamidin produces a water-soluble yellow colour dye.
