Calendula is a botanical substance extracted from a variety marigold plant that has long been reveled for its powerful medicinal properties. Plant pharmacological studies have shown calendula to be effective in soothing irritated skin. During the Civil War, it’s reported that calendula flowers were applied to soldiers’ wounds to prevent skin infection and aid healing. In fact, Calendula flowers were used in ancient Greek, Roman, Middle Eastern, and Indian cultures as a medicinal herb, as well as a natural dye for fabrics, foods, and cosmetics. Many of these uses persist today. They are also used to make oil that protects the skin and help scratches and shallow cuts heal faster and prevent infection.
Calendula creams are derived from the dried and powdered calendula florets. It has widespread appeal for use in cosmetic skin-care products as an alternative to body moisturizing creams containing parabens and petroleum. The all-natural appeal of calendula for skin care combined with the anti-inflammatory properties and help with wound healing are what make My Girls™ Skin Care uniquely suited to soothing and plumping dry, delicate, burned and irritated skin that may result from medical and dermatological procedures.
