Ingredient Trend - Calendula Flowers

Share To Social Media

What is ‘Calendula’?

Native to the Mediterranean, Calendula officinalis, or pot marigold, is a herbaceous plant used in herbal and skincare products. Thought to bloom on the first of the month, this perennial’s name stems from the Latin “kalendae” which means “little calendar” or “the first day of every month". Calendula flowers are orange/ warm gold with a powerful scent aroma. As a trusted ingredient throughout history, Calendula has traditional uses in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine.


In addition, Calendula has edible flowers that are rich in the eye-health antioxidant, lutein. Within both the Food and Beverage, and Personal Care industry, it is widely recognised as a "healing flower", due to its eye health nutrients, and its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.

Behind the Trend

Increased screen time has resulted in concerns about eye health, and beauty attitudes have shifted from purely aesthetic makeup looks, to using products that cater to healthier skin.
