Calendula pronounced (kuh-len-juh-luh) is also known as the marigold flower. Calendula is recognized by its showy, many-rayed orange or yellow petals. Calendula has been used for centuries to soothe and hydrate the skin. Calendula is an annual flower and the name refers to its tendency to bloom with the calendar, usually once a month or with every new moon, making it very sustainable. This makes Calendula good for you, good for your family and good for the planet.
Jessica says “Calendula’s natural replenishing properties infuse the skin with hydration and it helps protect the skin’s moisture barrier and prevent damage caused by dryness.”
California Baby grows our own organic calendula flowers at our Organic Farm in Santa Barbara County in California, and then creates our exclusive organic Calendula extract via a proprietary process at our Certified Organic Factory in Los Angeles. We’ve gone an extra step (so like us!) and created our very own ‘organic calendula flower infusion’ slowly bathed in high temperature water to create a super-concentrated base for our Calendula products—they are also enriched with our certified organic calendula extract. The result is a richer, more concentrated product from this trusted flower that’s been used to soothe the skin for centuries.
