The calendula flower has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and healing properties. These are just a few of the reasons why we’ve chosen to cultivate the calendula flower for use in our skincare line.
These days, inflammation is a buzzword in the health and wellness industry and many people are trying to limit it in their bodies. Calendula is full of flavonoids which help combat inflammation by fighting free radicals and other compounds which are harmful to the body. It’s also full of linoleic acid which aids issues like dermatitis, diaper rash, and other inflammatory conditions.
