Calendula extract is a vegetable active ingredient for use in creams, aftershave and other cosmetics.

Use

Using calendula extract is simple: mix with the rest of the formula ingredients and you're done, no heating required.

Dosage Advice:

  • Face creams: 1-5%
  • Hand and foot creams: 5-20%
  • Aftershave: 2-5%
  • Face lotions: 2-5%
Because the product contains a lot of glycerine, it is recommended to reduce the percentage of humectants in the formula. For emulsions: use in an aqueous phase or other water-miscible phase.

Properties

Calendula extract is a yellow to light brown somewhat viscous liquid at room temperature. The material has a fairly long shelf life: keep in a cool, dry, dark and well-closed container.

This extract is made from the flowers of the marigold (Calendula officinalis L.) with a mixture of vegetable glycerine and water. Due to the high percentage of glycerine (> 65%), a preservative is not necessary.

The use is mainly based on tradition, as usually in cosmetics, little good research has been done into the effect, the list below is therefore also based on traditional use and based on the best information we have available.

  • Soothing, reduces irritation, for example in creams and other care cosmetics.
  • Good for acne.
  • Astingent, tightens the skin.
  • Anti-oxidant, limits damage to the skin caused by (too much) sunlight.

Sustainability

In addition to water, Calendula extract is made entirely from renewable, plant-based substances and is also completely biodegradable in the environment.

Packaging

The 10 and 50 ml packaging consists of a glass bottle with a black plastic (PP) closure. The 250 g and 1 kg packaging consist of a plastic (PET) bottle with a black plastic (PP) closure.

Dangers

Calendula extract is not classified as a hazardous substance. We also recommend that you handle all raw materials with care, including this one: keep out of the reach of children.
