Botanical Ingredient Spotlight: CALENDULA

Botanical Ingredient Spotlight: CALENDULA

We talk a lot about this plant - in our product pages, on social media, and in our Slow Beauty Circle community, and you might be wondering... why should I care about Calendula?

Because... to put it simply... it's bloody brilliant for your skin.

They're great for all kinds of skin issues - acne, eczema, psoriasis, inflammation, irritation, rosacea, sensitive skin... the list goes on!

Calendula flowers...

  • have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which means they help reduce skin irritations and inflammation
  • help to stimulate the body’s immune system to fight off infection
  • promote the healing and repair of skin tissues while minimising scar formation

I could go on, but I think you get the idea.

As you can see from this list, Calendula is especially good for helping to soothe and heal acne, spots, and breakouts. That's why it's a key ingredient in our Clarifying Facial Collection formulated for those with spot-prone skin (and the products Sami uses herself).
