The name ‘amaranth’ comes from the Greek word ‘amarantos’ (this means ‘unfading) and ‘anthos’ (this means flower). The vibrant colours of the amaranth plant are reflected in our branding – the natural, rich green inspired by the plant leaves and brilliance of deep pink from the blooming flowers.
Amaranth has long influenced various cultures including Greek and Chinese. A staple of the Aztecs, it was widely used as both food and natural medicine. This ancient seed is now being rediscovered as one which is unique, with high quality protein, unsaturated oils and amino acids. Amaranth is becoming increasingly recognised as a true super food with omega 3 and 6, dietary fibre and carbohydrates. Overlooked, until now however, are the specific, unique properties of amaranth which are beneficial to the skin
