And the residual of these flowers after dyeing can be used as bio-fertilizers. These flower dyes are environment friendly and may not cause any skin infections. Marigold flowers [Tagetes], are a rich source of lutein, a carotenoid pigment. Nowadays, Lutein is becoming an increasingly popular active ingredient used in the Food Industry and Textile coloration.
