About calendula

Here is a post to share and note a bit about calendula and a couple of skin care benefits of calendula for skin, as noted in a blog post by astrida naturals (@astridanaturals) πŸ•Š calendula flowers are beautiful light orange, golden flowers which are often used in natural beauty care and skin care products, including natural soaps. I am hoping to include organic calendula flower petals and calendula pure essential or infused oil in a couple of natural beauty care products for camomile care (@camomilecare) a natural beauty care brand, including natural soaps and hope the blog post could be helpful in case you could be hoping to learn a bit more about calendula flowers and how calendula can help to look after skin.

About calendula

as noted in a blog post by astrida naturals (@astridanaturals), more and more eco conscious cosmetic brands have been including calendula as a feature ingredient in their products recently. Calendula officinalis (pot marigold) is a beautiful golden coloured floral blossom, which is often used in gardening and also sometimes in cooking too, in the place of saffron. Further, you may of noticed calendula popping up quite a lot on skin care labels recently, and thought calendula could of been just a fragrance, although calendula is helpful for natural skin care and has quite a lot of helpful and quite impressive skin care benefits.

Skin care benefits of calendula

πŸ•Š anti inflammatory and anti bacterial: calendula has healing anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties, and was often used to disinfect wounds and heal burns and skin infections in earlier times. More recently, calendula essence, extract or essential oil is included into skin care products to fortify the healing effects of the product and calendula infused products are still often used by people who are hoping to naturally aid the healing process of wounds. Calendula is also commonly used to heal acne, dry skin, diaper rashes and more.

πŸ•Š antioxidant rich: calendula is also rich in antioxidants, including carotenoids ( vitamin a) which help to remove free radicals, which can cause the skin to age prematurely. Calendula is also very rich in vitamin e, another antioxidant with an amazing ability to soften skin. Further, the linolenic acid in calendula oil could also help to reduce photo ageing of the skin, caused by the sun.

πŸ•Š brightening and regenerating: calendula is a natural skin brightener, which is effective in helping to reduce the appearance of scars. Studies also show how calendula extract can help to stimulate the production of collagen, which is important in skin regeneration, so calendula infused toners and moisturisers could be helpful for people who could be hoping to regain youthful and glowing skin.

Have you tried a natural beauty care or skin care product before with calendula flower petals or pure essential oil or infused with calendula ?
