Calendula (Calendula Officinalis Extract)
Calendula is extracted from the bright orange flowers of Marigolds. It is somewhat of a wonder herb for acne for two reasons. Firstly it is anti microbial, this means that in tests it kills bacteria, particularly the type that cause acne (Staphylococcus). Secondly it actually speeds up the healing of your skin so that spots don’t hang around so long. If the bacteria are dying off and your skin is healing faster it stands to reason that using this can mean clearer skin.
