Lyonsleaf multi-award-winning Calendula Cream is a targeted anti-inflammatory emollient for problem skin, suitable for adults and children over 3 years.
Lyonsleaf calendula cream is water-free and a small pot goes a lot further than you may expect. The 30ml pot is enough for most customers, you only need order the large pot if you have an extensive problem skin condition.
It contains our home-grown Calendula - a natural, powerful anti-inflammatory that promotes healing and cell regeneration but does not have the side-effects associated with topical steroids. Essential oils heal, soothe, reduce itching and balance the production of sebum, improving both dry and oily skin
Cold-pressed plant oils, the finest emollients, moisturise by repairing and maintaining skin’s barrier function. Maintaining the skin barrier is the most effective way of hydrating skin because it restores the the skin's ability to seal in moisture drawn from the dermis below and from the humidity in the air. Dry skin is caused when skin barrier fails and excessive moisture escapes, the drying effect causes more cracks in the barrier, more moisture lost and a vicious circle ensues. Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream effectively puts an end to this cycle.
The skins lipid barrier not only keeps valuable moisture in, it keeps pathogens and allergens out. These invaders cause reactions, infections (fungal and bacterial), spots, allergic reactions and cause skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis to flare up. (This invasion can also affect those with oily skin)
Because it is water-free Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream does not require the anti-microbial preservatives that often irritate sensitive skin and it is made from 100% active, natural ingredients, bursting with a myriad of vitamins, antioxidants and beneficial compounds. It does not contain petrochemicals or artificial chemicals of any description.
Unlike many water-free products, Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream is easily absorbed and non-greasy when used correctly. You will find a surprisingly small amount glides on and easily covers a large area of skin.
Most moisturising products contain 70-80% water which simply evaporates from your skin. When using Lyonsleaf products, you can use 70-80% less, so a small jar lasts an incredibly long time
Note: Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream should not be used on broken skin.
It is important to understand that there is no cure for Eczema or Psoriasis. Whilst this product is an incredibly helpful tool in the management of such conditions, if there are underlying issues aggravating the condition (eg diet, stress, allergens etc) then it is possible that no topical treatment will help. If you are struggling to manage a chronic skin condition see our Eczema & Psoriasis page for some pointers your GP may not have suggested.
We are 100% Natural, but not 100% Organic. We choose organic ingredients when we feel the benefits justify the extra cost. We always choose cold pressed oils to avoid the solvents used in the refining process which destroy many theraputic properties. This common sense approach enables us deliver the purest skin care at the best price. For further explanation of this see our organic vs natural page.
