Soothing and fragrant
African marigold oil is renowned for its floral fragrance, as well as for its antioxidant and soothing effect, mainting the skin soft, relieved and firm.
Tagetes erecta is also known as African, Mexican or Aztec Marigold. It belongs to the same family as dahlia and daisy (Asteraceae) and should not be confused with the common marigold, Calendula Officinalis. The bright yellow to orange flowers can be used entirely or can be dried or boiled in water to make an infusion.
African marigold is also a natural preservative and helps to keep our products fresh. They are often use as dyes thanks to their high levels of lutein, a naturel yellow pigment.
