The horsechestnut is a beautiful ornamental tree with attractive leaves and flowers. It produces prickly fruit capsules that contain a glossy brown and nut-like seed. The seed is known as a conker and has been used in a popular children’s game since at least the mid-nineteenth century. The Aesculus hippocastanum got its association to horses which dates back to when the tree first came to the UK in the late 16th century from Turkey. When the leaves fall, the stalks leave a scar on the twig which resembles the shape of a horseshoe complete with nail holes.

Delivering “true to nature” hydrophilic plant profiles. Cellular Extraction harnesses the species’ water-soluble blueprint of phyto-compounds and their derivatives (the entourage), in their synergistic relationships, as they exist in the cell. Extracted rapidly under high pressure, this unique process maintains the molecules’ natural integrity. Committed to conscious manufacturing, Cellular Extracts are created using purified, deionised, rain-harvested water and less plant material than past processes to produce a natural extract, that is eco-sustainable, traceable to source, transparent in composition – delivering the brilliance of nature.
