Calendula Infused Oil

Posted on Thursday 17 April 2008

Calendula is an infused oil, not a cold pressed vegetable oil. However, it still falls into the category of carrier oil, as it can be applied directly to the skin.

Infused oils are made by maceration. This is a process where the plant materials, in this case the flowers of the Calendula plant, are placed into a base carrier oil and left for a period of time. During this time the oil is agitated periodically, and the flowers release their oil soluble properties (including their colour) into the base oil.

Calendula infused oil is beneficial for helping to soothe irritated and cracked skin. It can be included in creams and lotions for red, dry and rough skin. In skin care it is valuable to help improve the complexion of the skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This infused oil also includes natural antioxidants vitamin E and Rosemary extract to help to protect it.

Ingredients: Calendula (Calendula officinalis) Flowers, Soya Bean (Glycine soja) Oil, Sweet Almond (Prunus amygdalus dulcis) Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) Extract.
