What is Calendula?
Calendula, also known as Marigold, is an annual or short-lived herbaceous perennial growing from 1 to 3 feet tall. The plant is a traditional herbal remedy well known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Calendula extract is rich in beta-carotene, stearin, triterpinoids, flavonoids and coumarin, as well as microelements. For this reason, Calendula is frequently used in soothing and calming preparations, such as baby baths and creams, and after-sun skin care products for sun-damaged skin.
