Calendula is known for its active constituents, triterpenoids, and flavonoids that provide anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and astringent properties. A natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent, Calendula is one of the best herbs for treating wounds, skin abrasions, and infections. Calendula is incorporated into formulations for its soothing, healing and protecting effects imparted on the skin. With therapeutic benefits similar to those of aloe, calendula extract is commonly used in cosmetic applications to help accelerate healing. Rich in flavonoids and saponins, Calendula’s constituents can help promote healing and repair and prevent tissue degeneration. Flavonoids and saponins help protect the skin from damage-causing free-radicals and aid in the metabolism of proteins and collagen during the healing process to help balance the skin and reduce irritation. Calendula has astringent, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and immune-stimulating properties.
