What is Calendula?
Calendula is a botanical substance extracted from a variety marigold plant that has long been reveled for its powerful medicinal properties including soothing irritated skin, radiation burns, acne, rosacea and reducing inflammation and redness. 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 skincare creams have widespread appeal, especially in Europe and Asia, for use in natural cosmetic skin-care products that reduce redness and improve clarity and as an alternative to body moisturizing creams containing parabens and petroleum. These benefits combined with anti-inflammatory properties of the plant and help with wound healing are what make My Girls™ Skin Care uniquely suited to soothing and plumping dry, delicate, burned or irritated skin that may result from medical and dermatological procedures.
