Celosia

Celosia cristata
Although native to India, celosia is widespread throughout the tropical regions of the Americas and Africa where the heat is ideal for developing the crested flower heads commonly known as "cockscombs". Highly prized by florists for its beautiful flowers and vibrant colours, it is also prized for its edible leaves and shoots, its seeds rich in soothing oil and its flowers for their astringent and blood stopping properties.
Research on extract of celosia conducted by Clarins Laboratories has demonstrated its ability to slow the expansion of fatty tissue.
