The horse chestnut contains many saponins (especially aescin), coumarins and flavonoids. The mentioned aescin has strong anti-inflammatory properties and thus can relieve unpleasant and painful inflammation. Horse chestnut extract stimulates microcirculation and supports blood flow. This strengthens the capillary walls and significantly reduces swelling. The improved blood circulation also has a soothing effect on sensitive skin and smoothes the overall skin appearance. The horse chestnut extract thus provides a fresh, smooth and clear complexion.
