Winter has its charm, but let’s face it — dry skin isn’t part of the magic. As the frosty air takes a toll on our skin, leaving it dry, cracked, and irritated, we may find ourselves daydreaming of the beautiful marigold flowers that can bring relief, Calendula officinalis.
With a single active ingredient made from this garden marigold, the Boiron line of Calendula first aid topicals relieve skin irritations, such as dry and chapped skin, chafing, and windburn.*
Nature’s “power flower” is now enjoying a moment in the sun. Back in July, actress and environmental activist Amy Smart traveled to Saint-Julien-en-Quint, a rural village in the south of France, for a close-up look at this blooming beauty. Smart was accompanied by her husband and TV personality Carter Oosterhouse, Giles Marini, a fellow actor and co-star in the upcoming movie “Blunt,” and a group of press led by eco-lifestyle guru and magazine publisher Danny Seo. Their first stop was an organic calendula farm, where she learned more about the fresh-picked flower and its vital role as key ingredient in Boiron’s Calendula topicals.

Then it was on to Messimy, the home of Boiron’s global headquarters, for an in-depth look at our eco-friendly approach to health and manufacturing. Smart and her crew got an exclusive peek inside our laboratories and modern manufacturing facilities where quality is first and foremost. Then it was a quick visit to the pasture where sheep freely graze on Boiron’s expansive campus. These educational experiences and more are captured in the feature story of the 2024 Winter Issue of “Naturally, Danny Seo” magazine.
