Why We Love Calendula to Calm the Skin
Calendula is one of our favorite botanicals for calming the skin. Coveted for centuries, this sacred, ancient skin-soother is known and clinically proven for its anti-inflammatory properties, regenerative potency and antioxidant-rich benefits.
Calendula was first named by the ancient Romans, who observed the plant would bloom on the first day (Latin: kalends) of every month. They viewed the plant’s non-stop blooming as a symbol of joy and cultivated it in their gardens to spread happiness. Ancient Egyptians extracted the sap from the plant’s stem and used it to heal wounds and promote healthy skin growth. In World War I, battlefield doctors would hydrate dried Calendula flowers and apply the mixture to soldiers’ wounds to prevent infection.
When it comes to stressed skin, we take inspiration from mother nature and botanicals that have been used for centuries to restore, heal and nourish. This beautiful ingredient which restores balance, boosts hydration and aids the skin barrier, is the ultimate lifeline for stressed-skin, and one of our potent botanicals in our Luxury Beauty Serum and Luxury Body Serum. Our Calendula is sustainably sourced in Egypt using CO2 extraction methods directly from the flower to ensure potency and efficacy. But most of all we chose Calendula to infuse your skin with moments of restorative calm.
