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 caretenoids and flavenoids. Today it is widely recognised 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 with 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 conjuction with a holistic management programme. See our Eczema and Psoriasis page for some pointers.
Zinc Oxide has also been used fo thousands of years to address skin damage, soothing and healing. At Lyonsleaf we hear many anecdotal reports, from ladies with perioral dermatitis, acne or rosacea, that products with zinc oxide effectively reduce the swelling of angry blemishes, many of our customers tell us they use a zinc cream along with our original Calendula Cream. It is also rumoured that zinc oxide gently rebalances oily skin sugesting it is useful it useful for acne and seborrhoeic dermatitis. These anecdotal reports have motivated Lyonsleaf to create this product with both active ingredients.
