Uses: Escin (from Horse Chestnut)  is used in phyto-medicine, due to the clinical evidence of its effectiveness in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency and related vascular andcirculatory disorders.

Escin (from Horse Chestnut) is used as a cosmetic ingredient for improving circulation and looking after the health of all veins and capillaries.

Information on Escin as used in cosmetics

Horse chestnut seed contains a 3-6% complex mixture of triterpene saponins, which are collectively referred to as escin.The aescin also acts as an antioxidant to help inhibit the enzymes collagenase and elastase, which leads to healthier collagen and supportive skin structures and also seems to have some form of anti-inflammatory action.Because the veins are healthier and less "leaky", there is less leakage of low-molecular proteins, electrolytes, and water out of the veins into the tissue.The aescin (escin) therefore helps to reduce the breakdown of glycoacalyx (mucopolysaccharides) in the capillary walls.It is the triterpene glycoside mixture, aescin (escin), which contains the anti-exudative and vascular astringent and toning effect, which is indicated to reduce the activity of lysosomal enzymes, normally found in people with problems with their veins and circulation.The action of this ingredient is to prevent vein fragility, which then also stops any leakage from the veins into the surrounding tissue, which would lead to swelling and edema.This particular ingredient counters the effects of the shorter wavelengths of sunlight - which gives it the ability to absorb UV radiation - but this does not negate its excellent astringent and toning properties.Escin has astringent, vasoconstrictor, anti-inflammatory, as well as circulation boosting properties and has a "sealing" effect on capillaries.
