Calendula Is Such A Fabulous Natural Ingredient And Here Is Why...
Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flowers*
Used since the days of the ancient Egyptians to “comfort the heart and spirit”, and still remains one of the most popular herbs for soothing, nourishing and gently supporting healthy looking skin. It is renowned for skin calming and soothing, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties and studies have also shown calendula’s efficacy in wound-healing.
- It has a very favourable effect on aging skin, as it stimulates collagen production; it hydrates the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of calendula benefits dry, irritated skin and acne.
- Calendula is high in antioxidants that may help prevent skin cell damage caused by free radicals.
- Its soothing effect can aid relief from pain, itching and irritation that might be caused by skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Calendula helps to speed up the healing time for the open wound as well as tissue injuries like sunburn.
