Comments: Pay attention: EXTRACT, a little calendula mixed in sunflower oil. Not all calendula! No scent. A nice gold tone clear color. Will come handy for sure!

FNWL Response: Hr, to clarify, our extract isn't simply a blend of two oils. As our description and method of extraction state: "Our Organic Calendula Oil Extract is produced by low temperature maceration of fresh organic calendula petals in Organic Sunflower Oil to extract the lipid soluble components of Calendula."

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
