Focus on: horse chestnut extract

The main ingredient of the Loss Control line. Let's find out what it is and what its properties are.


Horse Chestnut Extract

Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract


The horse chestnut is a very ancient plant, native to the northern part of the Balkan peninsula, but today it is cultivated and widespread in all temperate areas in Europe, including Italy. The fruits are reminiscent of chestnuts, but are not suitable for food, as they are toxic to humans.


If from a nutritional point of view the horse chestnut fruits represent a product of little interest, they are instead extremely useful in the phytotherapeutic and cosmetic fields.

Let's see below the main qualities for which we have chosen this extract for our anti hair loss line Loss Control :

  •  ANTI-INFLAMMATORY : rich in substances with anti-inflammatory and decongestant action, such as aescin, which helps to soothe skin irritations.
  • ANTIOXIDANT : the high content of flavonoids, substances universally known for their antioxidant and vasoprotective properties, helps protect and strengthen the hair bulb.
