PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

An orange to dark yellow coloured oil that is mobile and made from dried Organic Calendula Flowers that have been infused in Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil with Rosemary Antioxidant added to stabilise it from oxidation.
 
There are many varieties of Calendula with many common names such as Marigold, Gold Bloom and Pot Marigold. They are not all the same and some are not appropriate for cosmetic use. It is important that the flowers used are from Calendula Officinalis, as ours is.
  • As this is a macerated oil, it also has all that benefits that Sunflower oil brings.
  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Cautions/Contraindications
Avoid using during pregnancy.
Remember that it already has sunflower oil in it so there is no need to add any more.
