In this work we have studied the features of hydrogel-Calendula officinalis extract complexes creation based on synthetic HEMA:PVP hydrogel and natural hydrogel with hyaluronic acid. The sorption properties of hydrogel carriers were studied and it was established that the created complexes contain flavonoids, exhibit antioxidant and antimicrobial effects. As a result, after conducting a number of necessary studies, there are high prospects for the use of these hydrogel complexes for the creation of cosmetic masks.
