Aesculus Hippocastanum Seed Extract

Aesculus Hippocastanum Seed Extract

Also-called-like-this: Horse Chestnut
What-it-does: soothing


Horse Chestnut is an often-used ingredient thanks to a couple of nice magic properties. It contains the active ingredient called escin that helps to maintain healthy blood circulation and strengthen capillaries. This makes horse chestnut useful for rosacea-prone skin and it’s also often used in toners for a fresh skin feeling. 

It also has some anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties, so all in all, a nice one to spot on the ingredient list.
