Tales from nature
The horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) is a tree originally from some areas of south -eastern Europe. Its fruits contain seeds that recall chestnuts, but with a more bitter taste and above all they contain toxic elements. The name of the species derives from the Greek ἵο Hippos, horse, and Castanon, chestnut, for the use of the fruits of this tree as a typical food of horses.
It is a plant that adapts very well to all types of climate and land, environment and territory. In the cosmetic field it is widely used for its washing and purifying power within treatments and shampoo for fat skin. It is not aggressive and does not interfere with the skin.
In skin treatments and in specific shampoo for oily hair, it washes deeply by eliminating the sebum in a delicate but deep way.
It strengthens the hair and contrasts the fall, giving compactness and brightness to the hair stem, stimulating its regrowth in the event of a fall or limited growth.
The extract of horse chestnut seeds contains powerful antioxidants, compounds that can help prevent cell damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals. Too many free radicals can lead to inflammation and cell damage.
