Overview

Calendula officinalis flower extract is derived from the flowers of the Calendula officinalis plant, also known as pot marigold.

It is a widely cultivated plant and has been used for centuries in alternative medicine systems as a wound healer to treat burns, cuts, rashes, dermatitis, and dry, irritated skin.

The yellow to bright orange flowers contain carotenoids (which are responsible for the color), triterpenoids, and flavonoids. They all have fantastic anti-inflammatory activity and can help to soothe inflamed skin when applied topically.
