Tales from nature

The chestnut is the fruit of the chestnut, unlike the hippocastan chestnut who is instead a seed. The chestnuts derive from female flowers (usually 2 or 3) enclosed by a dome which then turns into a hedgehog.

Fossil findings attest that the tree should derive from a strain originated in the tertiary sector, about 10 million years ago and that in a hot climate period it had spread to Asia, Europe and the Americas. 

Chestnuts are one of the most appreciated autumn fruits: they are very nutritious and poor in fats and contain many benefits for the health of our body, including potassium, phosphorus and sulfur, magnesium, calcium, chlorine, iron, vitamin C and folic acid. They also have anti -inflammatory properties thanks to their phenolic acid content and antioxidants.

Precisely these last properties make a precious ally in cosmetics: the chestnut extract improves skin hydration and repairs the damage of the sun, and its vitamin C stimulates the production of collagen, restoring elasticity and compactness to the skin.


The cosmetic properties of chestnuts are mainly due to the hcus, tannins, flavonoids and curarins, substances that, extracted from horse chestnut seeds, carry out a powerful protective action of the blood vessels present at a microcirculatory level on our skin.
