SOOTHE YOUR SUMMER SKIN WITH CALENDULA

SOOTHE YOUR SUMMER SKIN WITH CALENDULA

Calendula has been used therapeutically for centuries because of its soothing and rejuvenating properties. It has a unique combination of bioactive compounds found within the flowering part of the plant including antioxidants, triterpenoids, phenolic compounds, and magnesium. These compounds make it the perfect skin soothing addition to any green beauty formula. We add drops of this delicate flower into every bottle via our Farm Beauty Complex: but figured: why not make a whole product in honor of one of our favorite botanicals?

This summer, we infused our Revitalizing Body Oil with our own hyper-potent Calendula to create a small-batch body oil to soothe dry, sun-stressed summer skin. Our seasonal harvest gave us enough Calendula to make 1,350 bottles — fresh from our farm and just for you. This limited edition blend delivers an extra dose of softening, soothing, and glow-boosting benefits for healthy-looking, radiant skin from head to toe and is made with 19 maximal performance ingredients.

Calendula, also known as mary-bud or mary-gold, is a bright yellow flower, and is one of the earliest known cultivated flowers. This plant is grown on Tata's Farm in our organic skincare garden and picked by hand each season at peak potency.

The Calendula flower is well-known for its skin soothing properties and has been studied extensively for its believed anti-inflammatory benefits. The content of triterpenoids, including faradiol and faradiol ester, are largely responsible for its anti-inflammatory properties. Calendula is also rich in polyphenols and flavonoids coming from alpha and beta carotene (which also give it its bright orange color)! Lastly, this flower is a strong antioxidant which helps to fight against aging while simultaneously being a powerful skin soother and giving the skin ample vitamins and minerals. With all these beneficial compounds, It’s easy to see why it’s one of our favorite skincare botanicals.

FROM SOIL TO SKIN 

Our Vermont-grown calendula is nurtured by the rich, nutrient dense, supercharged tunbridge soil of the Champlain Valley. This increases the abundance of bioactive phytonutrients to give you Calendula, amplified.

At the beginning of the season, we ran a test to ensure we were planting in only the most nutrient dense soil. Our organic skincare garden boasts mineral content ranging from Potassium, Iron, Copper, Zinc, and many more.

We harvest these flowers at peak potency and blend them into our Revitalizing Body Oil in a highly-calibrated temperature controlled maceration process. This allows us to capture the full spectrum of bioactive compounds within calendula for an extra soothing limited edition body oil with the most activating combination of phytonutrients for total skin wellbeing.
