Calendula cream: caring for your skin naturally

Calendula creams are an age-old skin care solution for eczema prone and dry skin. Here we give an overview of why we use this beautiful natural ingredient and the organic creams with Calendula for babies and adults in our range.

Why use calendula in skin cream?

Calendula or the Common or Pot Marigold has been valued for many centuries and was used both as a food and a medicine in ancient Greek and Roman civilisations.

Modern science has identified Calendula as a source of several antioxidants including lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, and the bright yellow colour of the petals comes from two further antioxidants flavoxanthin and auroxanthin.

A combination of antioxidants gives Calendula excellent soothing and protective actions and organic calendula creams have been used to soothe and calm inflamed skin for centuries.


The story of Calendula that goes into our creams

Green People uses a certified organic extract of Calendula flowers that have been macerated in sunflower oil.

This process, which takes many days to complete, draws the antioxidant actives from the Calendula flowers into the sunflower oil, turning it a bright yellow-orange colour in the process.

The oil is then strained and filtered before we incorporate the Calendula into our creams and lotions.
