The flowers of the Calendula officinalis plant (garden marigold) have been used topically for generations to heal skin irritations. As the active ingredient in Boiron Calendula Gel, the homeopathic preparation of Calendula promotes the healing of insect stings and bites, shaving nicks, razor burn, and brush burn.* Of the Boiron Calendula line, the gel is best for small cuts. Cool and refreshing upon contact, the non-greasy, non-sticky, water-based formula leaves no residue. It’s free of fragrances, dyes, and parabens.
A must-have for any first aid kit, Calendula Gel is available over the counter in 1.5 oz. and 2.6 oz. tubes. Boiron’s skin care line includes a cream, ointment, and burn formula.
