Dermatologists everywhere have been won over by calendula, a delicate, orange-coloured Mediterranean plant. Much like arnica, it has a hidden strength enabling it to withstand both devastating frosts and the most scorching sun. The secret of its strength is hidden in its thick, robust leaves.
We knew from the beginning that this ingredient would fit in 100% with our personality and our concern for the most sensitive, delicate skins … it was an immediate connection.
It has traditionally been used for its properties which reduce inflammation, disinfect and heal wounds, although it can also boost circulation and is effective in regulating women’s cycles.
The official monograph of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) also mentions the use of calendula in treating small wounds and minor burns.
