Horse Chestnut liposoluble extract

Horse chestnut oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant. It is rich in fatty acids, flavones and tannins but most importantly it contains aescin, a mixture of saponins with anti-inflammatory and vasoprotective effects.

Aescin is the chemical compound that makes horse chestnut oil extremely beneficial for circulatory issues. It can be used as a massage oil to promote blood circulation and soothe the symptoms of phlebitis, varicose veins. Horse chestnut liposoluble extract helps to prevent swollen veins and to treat tired, heavy and itchy legs thanks to its anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling action. It can also be applied to reduce swelling caused by trauma or sports injury and to treat the symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.

Horse chestnut is rich in antioxidant flavonoids that slow down the aging process of the skin as they reduce oxidative stress. Horse chestnut oil eliminates the free radicals that cause cellular mutation and destruction which are responsible for premature aging

The anti-inflammatory properties of horse chestnut oil make it an excellent remedy for hemorroids. It can be applied on the affected area to soothe the swollen veins that cause bleeding, pain and itching.
