The calendula extract is obtained from the flowers of Calendula officinalis and is rich in triterpenes, flavonoids, polysaccharides, carotenes and phytosterols.

The marked soothing properties of calendula are to be attributed to the unsaponifiable component composed of flavonoids and mucilages while the immunostimulating capacity is instead attributable to the polysaccharide component.

Due to the presence of carotenes, Calendula Officinalis Extract is also indicated as a protective against damage caused by solar radiation.

The active ingredients contained in the calendula extract, in particular the flavonoids, exert an anti-inflammatory effect on sensitive and inflamed skin, stimulate re-epithelialization, accelerate epidermal turnover and promote the activity of fibroblasts in the dermis by promoting collagen synthesis.
