Calendula skin benefits
Now that you know Elma's calendula background, we can explore its aesthetic advantages. Discover three marigold skin advantages and why we use them in Elma's product.
Calendula reduces sensitivity and soothes irritation.
Calendula extract reduces inflammation, especially on delicate skin. Calendula's skin-soothing advantages come from its anti-inflammatory characteristics and ability to decrease trans-epidermal water loss, which enhances the skin's defences against irritantitan.We use Calendula in all our products such as Skin Revitaliser - Iris or SOS balm -Titan. It reduces skin irritation.
Calendula Benefit #2: Antioxidants
Calendula's skincare advantages include protecting the skin from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress describes skin damage from free radicals or reactive oxygen. These harmful chemicals build on the skin following exposure to UV radiation or pollutants. Free radicals can destroy collagen and elastin if left unchecked.
How Calendula help? Calendula flowers include flavonoids, polyphenols, and carotenoids. Antioxidants neutralise free radicals, minimising their skin effects. Calendula protects the skin from stress, keeping it healthy and beautiful.
Calendula Extract may hydrate skin.
Calendula flower extract contains antioxidants and skin-friendly oils, according to research. Calendula seeds have a high quantity of linoleic and calendric acid, however, the exact amounts vary on where the petals were grown when they were picked, and how the extraction was prepared.
