Marigold uses unrefined, organic ingredients and origin sourced essential oils. Keep reading to discover why we chose each of these ingredients for our magical formulas.
Organic Olive Oil
Olive oil is high in Vitamins A, D, E, and K and helps lock in moisture. It is an antioxidant, which means it helps protect skin cells from environmental damage that results in pre-mature aging. In addition, it has bacteria and inflammation fighting properties.
Organic Safflower Oil
Safflower oil is a medium weight oil full of nutrients and healthy fats. It is very high in Linoleic acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid found naturally in the skin. It helps make the skin's barrier stronger so it can effectively keep water in and irritants out. This amazing oil absorbs quickly, locks in moisture, prevents inflammation, lightens age spots, and aids in wound healing.
Organic Calendula Oil
We aren't supposed to have favorites, but this is my favorite oil in the bunch. It is a powerhouse oil derived from Marigold's (hence the salve's name) and is extremely nourishing and gentle. Its calming and soothing properties are great for eczema. It is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, B-complex vitamins, and Vitamins E and K. My favorite thing about this oil is it has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties which assist in wound healing....Ok, I'll quit bragging on Marigolds now.
Organic Prickly Pear Seed Oil
This oil is derived from the prickly pear cactus and is high in amino acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acid. It is ultra-moisturizing, calms redness, stimulates cell renewal, and improves the skin's overall appearance.
Beeswax is a humectant. This means it attracts water. It is also occlusive, meaning it helps form a protective layer on the skin and seals in moisture.
Organic Mango Butter
Mango butter is extracted from the seed of the mango fruit and is packed with antioxidants. It contains vitamin A which stimulates the skin's renewal process. It also contains Vitamins C, E and Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids. It is lightweight, non-greasy, and non-comedogenic (meaning it won't clog your pores!). It helps prevent scars and imperfections, helps with inflammation, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and is an amazing natural moisturizer!
Organic Kokum Butter
Kokum Butter is derived from the seed of the kokum tree and is known for its ability to regenerate skin cells. It is high in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. It has amazing antioxidant properties, works great on sensitive, acne prone skin, and is non-comedogenic. It softens skin and helps promote elasticity!
Organic Arrowroot Powder
Arrowroot Powder is derived from the Ararot Plant and helps absorb excess oil while promoting healing. It has been shown to improve skin texture by going deep into the skin, softening it from the inside, to naturally promote blemish free skin!
