As the marigold is in flower almost the whole summer, it was given the Latin name Calendula, from 'calendae', meaning first day of the month. As early as the Middle Ages it was used because of its wound healing properties. Originally it came from Southern Europe.
Today, lavera gets this precious medicinal plant with its bright yellow and orange flowers from certified integrated cultivation in Germany or to be more precise from the Gladbacher Bergenland, South-West of Marburg. There marigolds grow on stony ground which comes from slate with the required amount of precipitation of 650mm. The seeds are propagated by the supplier. Its precious ingredients are obtained from the so-called maceration in which the flowers are marinated in olive oil and then exposed to the sun.
Calendula oil soothes irritated and slightly inflamed skin. It offers a wide range of application as it also protects soft lip skin and keeps the sensitive skin of babies and the elderly healthy. Calendula has a skin balancing and anti-inflammatory effect and promotes wound healing. Calendula is most suitable for sensitive skin which easily becomes inflamed but also for oily skin and skin prone to acne. Laverana produces calendula extracts itself using organic alcohol. These extracts are used for impure or dry skin and also have a skin balancing and anti-inflammatory effect.
