Calendula officinalis, also known as marigold, is a species of flowering plant native to the Mediterranean region. These bright, sunny flowers and pleasant herbal fragrance have long been used for healing, particularly in wound healing and recovery.

These antioxidants help neutralize free radicals, limiting the effect they can have on the skin. This means that Calendula helps protect skin from stressors, UV radiation or pollution to help skin function optimally and look flawless and fresh.
