The marigold extract is made from the flowers of the marigold (Calendula officinalis ), a plant species from the Asteraceae family (Asteraceae). The herbaceous plant can reach heights of 30 to 50 centimeters and bears sunny yellow to orange flowers when it is in bloom. The plant's name comes from the strikingly curved and twisted seeds. While its origin is probably in the Mediterranean region, it now occurs wildly throughout Europe and is, for example, B. cultivated in Egypt, Hungary, Poland and Balkan countries.



In folk medicine, marigold has been considered a medicinal plant for centuries and is famous for their wound healing effect. Valuable ingredients contained in the flower such as essential oils, flavonoids and carotenoids have anti-inflammatory properties, have an antibacterial effect and also promote the formation of new tissue. The marigold flower extract has an overall skin-soothing effect and, when used in our wound balm, supports the regeneration of poorly healing wounds and the skin.
