INCI = Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Oil / Equisetum arvense extract / Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil
Item Code: HTB01
Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is the last remaining decendent of the giant ferns that covered the earth over 400 million years ago. The plant has an unusual root, shoot, and stem system that enables it to absorb and store silicon and other minerals. A typical Horsetail plant can contain up to 15 percent vegetal silica. This bio-available silica, when applied topically, can greatly aid in the healing of wounds and burns, and has a softening and smoothing effect on the skin. Mineral-rich Horsetail contains the building blocks needed for collagen and elastin synthesis, and the silicon present will link any collagen produced, thus greatly enhancing the rebuilding of connective tissues in the epidermis. Horsetail also contains flavonoids and saponins which help rebuild and regenerate skin cells.
