Product Description & Benefits:
Escin (aescin), a bioflavonois, is the active chemical in Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) extract responsible for many of its medicinal properties. Centuries ago, Horse Chestunt was used to ameliorate varicose veins in the leg, hemorrhoids, and phlebitis. The Horse Chestnut from Skin Actives Scientific can be used topically to help with varicose veins, swelling, and oxidative stress. Regarding the skin itself, escin inhibits elastase and hyaluronidase, preserving the structure and volume of the dermis matrix. Rutin, another chemical present in Horse Chestnut extract, also strengthens fragile capillaries, working synergistically with escin to promote vascular health.

This skin care active ingredient is made by a licensed, high-quality laboratory of skin care ingredients. Make Me Heal has partnered with leading laboratories and manufacturers of skin care ingredients to come up with the largest assortment of high-quality active ingredients that are effective for your skin. These ingredients are backed by scientific research and testing.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?


DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.

Directions For Use:
Each tube is enough for 24 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 1% concentration (5 g in 720 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or a Sea Kelp Bioferment base. The powder will not dissolve immediately but will release components slowly into the cream/lotion. We suggest using Centella Asiatica with Horse Chestnut, as they work in synergy.
