Calendula: A Leading Ingredient for Skin Soothing

Calendula officinalis is a flower originally from Europe, but is now widely distributed across North America, the Balkans, India, and other provinces. This resilient flower thrives in various climates and soil types, making it a popular choice to cultivate in temperate regions around the world. Typically reaching heights of 30 to 60 cm, it boasts numerous stems and a tough constitution. The name ‘Calendula’ comes from the Latin word ‘calends’, which refers to the first of every month.

This vibrant orange flower has a long history of use in traditional medicine. Its dried petals are used to make ointments and washes for various skin problems, including skin inflammation, open wounds, mild infections, scrapes, bruises, razor burns and wind burns. Many studies have highlighted Calendula’s effectiveness in treating burns, stimulating new tissue formation by enhancing blood and oxygen delivery to the wound site, and encouraging collagen development for calm, hydrated skin.
