Biochemica® Calendula Butter is produced via lipid extraction of finely ground Calendula officinalis flowers. The plant is one of many species of plants known as marigolds in the daisy family Asteraceae. It is commonly known as the garden or Scottish marigold.

This marigold has been used in cooking for centuries, with the flowers a common ingredient in German soups and stews (thus the nickname “pot marigold”). Components of the flowers include flavonol glycosides, triterpene oligoglycosides, oleanane-type triterpene glycosides, saponins and sesquiterpene glucoside.

The healing properties of dried calendula flowers have been recognized since at least the 12th century. They were applied to cuts and wounds to slow bleeding, fight infection and speed healing. Indeed, even today products based on calendula petals are applied to the skin to help with burns, bruises and cuts to fight minor skin infections, to treat hemorrhoids and to safely and effectively treat diaper rash.

Hallstar captures the active components of the flowers in a propri­etary blend of Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil and optimized hydrogenated vegetable oil, producing a butter-like material suitable for use in cosmetics and toiletries.  Biochemica® Calendula Butter may be used in body care, facial care and baby care to impart moisturization while providing additional care to tender, stressed and damaged skin.
