Calendula Liquid Extract
Calendula officinalis L., commonly known as pot marigold, is a plant species native to central, Eastern, and Southern Europe. With its widely recognized yellow-gold petals, it has long been used in Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine for its anti-inflammatory and other medicinal properties.
Our Calendula Extract is produced from the calendula flower-heads, and is rich in oxygenated monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes. Calendula also contains phenol acids, tannins, carotenoids, Saponosides, coumarins and polysaccharides (mucilage).
Due to its saponin and mucilage content, Calendula has moisturizing properties making it ideal in formulations for dry, irritated, or delicate skin.
Calendula as medicine and a coloring agent was known to old herbalists, especially Arabs and Hindus. It has long been used topically to treat skin ulcers, infected wounds, diaper rash, eczema, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, periodontitis and conjunctivitis
