Award winning, 100% natural, calming emollient suitable for adults and children over 3 years. Use to calm any skin in need of TLC.
Hand-made and potent. Visibly orange with 20% Lyonsleaf's own calendula macerated oil, made from flowers grown (without the use of artificial chemicals) at their farm in Somerset.
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.
The herb Calendula has been used traditionally for hundreds, possibly thousands of years to soothe inflammation and promote healing. It is now known that it contains many beneficial compounds such as carotenoids and flavenoids. Today Calendula is widely used as a non-steroid treatment for eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, dermatitis, rashes, and insect bites. It is also used to help heal tattoos and skin damaged by radiation therapy. Whilst there are no cures for the chronic skin conditions mentioned, many people find using high-quality Calendula products (that don't contain other irritating ingredients) can be beneficial, especially in conjunction with a holistic management programme. See our Eczema and Psoriasis page for some pointers.
Because Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream is made from 100% unrefined, undiluted plant oils it dramatically improves skin barrier function, effectively hydrating the skin by sealing in moisture. The epidermis' ability to regulate itself is not compromised and it can draw water from the dermis below and from the air around it (the reason you don't need water in your moisturiser).
Good skin barrier also keeps pathogens out. Pathogens cause spots, fungal or bacterial infections, allergic reactions and flare-ups of chronic skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis (this can happen to oily skin too)
Because it is water-free Lyonsleaf Calendula Cream does not require the anti-microbial preservatives or emulsifiers that often irritate sensitive skin. 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.

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 therapeutic properties. This common sense approach enables us to deliver the purest skin care at the best price. For further explanation of this see our organic vs natural page.
