Native to the area from Macaronesia east through the Mediterranean region to Iran, Calendula has been used for centuries. Also known as “Marigold”, it has antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. A wonderful emollient oil that has a soothing effect on the mature skin. Calendula contains high amounts of flavonoids, plant-based antioxidants that protect the skin against cell-damaging free radicals.
