Marigold Flower CO2-to extract (organic) , < 0,1 % Carotenoides, DE-ÖKO-013

Product description

In cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, for treatment of hurts, bruises and inflammations, for wound healing and increasing the granulation, for dry sensitive skin, in face creams, sun lotions, lipsticks, hair shampoos, bath additives. Calendula extract is recommended for treatment of damaged skin. It stimulates granulation, enhances formation of cell tissue, accelerates wound healing and has an anti-inflammatory and pain killing effect. It is used to cure decubitus, burns, eczema, bee stings, swelling and inflammation of e.g. veins, varicose veins and hemorrhoids. The anti-inflammatory and cancer-preventing efficacy of Calendula officinalis is related to the activity of triterpene alcohols, especially to faradiol esters, taraxasterol, amyrins and lupeol. Anti-inflammatory mechanisms which play an important role in anticarcinogenic activity include inhibition of NF-?B, COX-2, arachidonic acid metabolism, decreased expression of inflammatory cytokines IL-1?, IL-6, and TNF-?, resulting in growth inhibition of cancer cell lines and down-regulation of enzymes, such as protein kinase C which mediates inflammation and tumour-cell proliferation. The product has also a relatively high concentration of phytosterols which stimulate the collagen synthesis and thus help to protect the skin against harmful environmental stress. A recent human study confirmed the photoprotective effect of phytosterols. It has been demonstrated that phytosterols inhibit UV-induced MMP-1 expression and downregulation of COL1A1 and COL1A2 genes responsible for collagen synthesis.
