This herbal extract from the seeds of the Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) tree is a mild astringent with anti-inflammatory properties that helps strengthen weak, leaky capillaries and promote healthy circulation.

The Horse Chestnut Seed Extract contains Escin (aescin), a saponin known to help maintain healthy blood circulation and strengthen skin capillaries and veins. In addition, it helps wound healing effects by inhibiting the skin-weakening enzymes hyaluronidase and collagenase and contains antioxidant/free radical scavenging bioflavonoids (Esculin and Proanthocyanidin A2) to protect against inflammatory cell damage.
