Castanea Sativa Seed Oil Skin Benefits:
Castanea sativa, also known as sweet chestnut, is a deciduous tree native to Europe and Asia. Its seed extract possesses high concentrations of antioxidants such as rutin and quercetrin. These antioxidant compounds provide castanea sativa seed oil with skin protecting benefits that work to neutralize harmful free radicals that are present in the environment.1
Oxidative stress plays a major role in photoaging. Rutin specifically has been found to be an effective protective measure against the photo-oxidative stress caused by the sun’s Ultraviolet-A radiation. Overall, by reducing the amount of reactive oxygen species found in the skin, topical application of castanea sativa extract can help to maintain the skin’s overall appearance. Furthermore, due to the fact castanea sativa extract may be gentle on the skin; it is favorable to infuse into skincare formulas.1 2
