FSS Horse Chestnut Extract

Preserved with Leucidal Liquid

Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract is an extract of the nut of the horse chestnut, Aesculus hippocastanum. Extracts from this species, and in particular, those based on horse chestnut seeds, contain saponins, known collectively as ’aescin’, which have a gentle soapy feel, and are potent anti-inflammatory compounds. Saponins, such as escin, also reduce capillary fragility, and therefore help to prevent leakage of fluids into surrounding tissues, which can cause swelling. An extract of horse chestnut has recently been shown to have one of the highest ’active-oxygen’ scavenging abilities of 65 different plant extracts tested. Such extracts are more powerful anti-oxidants than vitamin E, and also exhibit potent cell-protective effects, which are linked to the well-known anti-aging properties of anti-oxidants. FSS Horse Chestnut Extract is a common ingredient in astringents, lotions, creams and other skin care products.
