Work, stress, lack of sleep, and other factors can cause skin to look and feel dry, rough, and tight. A long flight, a stressful day at work, or a sleepless night can leave your skin craving an instant pick-me-up.
To refresh, revitalize and hydrate skin, Kiehl’s Since 1851 chemists developed Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque. Formulated for all skin types, including sensitive skin, Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque leaves skin feeling hydrated, soothed and refreshed after only 5 minutes – making it a quick and simple addition to any skincare regimen.
This clear gel masque bursts into a refreshing surge of cooling hydration upon application. Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque can be used regularly up to three times per week, or as an instant pick-me-up after a long flight, stressful day or sleepless night. Its calming, yet revitalizing properties make it beneficial for skin that is dull, tired, or dehydrated. Chamomile and lemon essential oils add a soothing, fresh aroma to the Paraben-free, colorant-free formula.
Calendula Petals & Extract: Sourced from multiple locations around the world, including Egypt & India, Calendula (Calendula Officinalis) is a part of the Marigold family. Calendula petals and extract are known to be a very rich source of polysaccharides, saponins and flavonoids, which are known for their skin soothing properties. Due to its anti-inflammatory effects on skin, Calendula is also highly regarded as a medicinal herb in both ancient Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicines.
Aloe Leaf Juice: Widely used for centuries in traditional and herbal medicine for its skin-soothing benefits, aloe juice is sourced from the leaf of the aloe vera plant, which grows in the Dominican Republic. A multipurpose skin treatment, aloe is highly regarded for its soothing and healing benefits. The ingredient is also known to possess hydrating properties and to help increase the water content in skin.
THE LIFECYCLE CYCLE OF THE CALENDULA PETAL
For decades, Kiehl’s has sourced the world over in search of the finest, most efficacious natural ingredients. In this vein, Kiehl’s first introduced its customers to the Calendula petal in the 1960s, with the launch of Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner. Formulated with hand-picked Calendula petals, it became an instant customer favorite for its soothing and refreshing properties.
Like its iconic predecessor, Kiehl’s new Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque is formulated with hand-picked Calendula petals. Manually harvested every August in full sun, the whole Calendula flower is picked by hand and cultivated without pesticides. To preserve the delicacy of the flower, and to keep each petal intact, the petals are hand-sorted and sun-dried in the open air, without the addition of extra processing or artificial heat.
When the petals arrive at Kiehl’s factory, they are slowly added to a transparent Aloe Vera base. Once the petals are infused, the formula begins to take on the petals’ golden color. Any unused petals and parts of the flower are placed back into the earth to fertilize the soil for future harvests.
THE CALENDULA COLLECTION
In the 1960s, Kiehl’s introduced Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner, which instantly became – and remains – a customer favorite. Today, the formula sells at a global rate of one every 15 seconds. Formulated with hand-picked natural whole petals, Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner is alcohol-free and gently tones normal to oily skin.
In 2014, the iconic toner was joined by Calendula Deep Foaming Face Wash, a gel cleanser developed to thoroughly, yet gently clean and refresh even sensitive skin. Kiehl’s chemists used two gentle, soap-free surfactants (to actively remove surface dirt and oil while helping to ensure the skin barrier is protected) and glycerin (for its ability to pull moisture from the air to replenish and help keep the skin hydrated.)
