Calendula Herbal Cream


Calendula officinalis or the “marigold” as it is more commonly known has been used as a topical application for a number of ailments. The tincture that is derived from the flowers appears to have an anti-inflammatory effect that has been demonstrated by Fonza et al (2009) to be from triterpene esters. The authors report that the anti-inflammatory triterpene esters contribute to the proliferation and migration of fibroblasts. These are prerequisites for wound granulation and re-epitheliasation. The authors also conclude that there are other compounds that contribute to the wound healing properties of the calendula flowers that still require further investigation.


For the complete article:

Fronzaa, M. et al 2009, “Determination of the wound healing effect of Calendula extracts using the scratch assay with 3T3 fibroblasts”, Journal of Ethnopharmacology vol 126 pp463–467.


Why is it great for use while having radiation therapy?


The Martin & Pleasance Calendula Cream is an excellent product because the calendula tincture is contained within an aqueous cream base. So not only do we have the benefit of the moisturising effect of the aqueous cream, but also the anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties of the calendula. This calendula cream is free from metals and perfumes which also makes it a great choice for use with radiation therapy. Another advantage of the Martin and Pleasance cream is that it does not contain parabens. Parabens are a group of preservatives that are said to be linked with breast cancer. While there is no confirmed scientific link between parabens and breast cancer, it is important as professionals to be sensitive of the patient’s desires to choose products that do not contain ingredients that have the possibility of being linked with cancer.


What results have we seen so far in practice?


While Martin and Pleasance Calendula Cream may have a bit of a funny smell, there have definitely been some great results for those patients who are using the cream. An excellent article to review is one by Pommier et al (2004). This article summarises the comparison between Calendula and Trolamine. The conclusion for this article is that “Calendula is highly effective for the prevention of acute dermatitis of grade 2 or higher and should be proposed for patients undergoing postoperative irradiation for breast cancer”.


Pommier P et al 2004, ‘Phase III Randomized Trial of Calendula Officinalis Compared With Trolamine for the Prevention of Acute Dermatitis During Irradiation for Breast Cancer’, Journal of Clinical Oncology, vol 22(8) pp1447-53.


Advantages over aqueous cream?


You get the best of both with this product – moisturising and easily absorbed aqueous cream and also the anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties of the calendula.


What’s so good about Martin and Pleasance Calendula?


This product comes in 3 different sizes, 20g, 75g and 100g. The 75g comes in a squeeze tube, whereas the other sizes come in glass tubs. The 75g tube is a great product for this kind of application because there is less contamination of the product between applications – no double dipping!



Directions: Apply 3 times daily or as required.
