The flowers of the Calendula officinalis plant (garden marigold) have been used topically for generations to heal skin irritations. As the active ingredient in Boiron Calendula Cream, the homeopathic preparation of Calendula promotes the healing of cuts, scrapes, chafing, and sunburn while the cream’s base soothes and moisturizes.* Light and easily spread, the water-based cream is ideal for use on faces or to cover larger areas. Try it as a general hand and body lotion for dry skin, a rejuvenating night cream, after exfoliation or cleansing treatments, post-cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels. It’s free of fragrances, dyes, and parabens. A must-have for any first aid kit, Calendula Cream is available over the counter in a 2.5 oz. tube. Boiron’s skin care line includes a gel, ointment, and burn ointment.
