Horsetail and Skin Rejuvenation

Once the favorite health food of herbivorous dinosaurs, the primitive horsetail plant has been known for its healing properties since Greek and Roman times. Throughout the centuries, Ayurvedic, Native American, Chinese, and European herbalists have prized the nutrient-packed stems of this fern-like perennial as both a medicine and a cosmetic.

The same properties that make horsetail an effective wound-healing agent and rash treatment also help restore youthful radiance and firmness to mature skin. In addition to reducing inflammation, horsetail strengthens veins and capillaries, stimulates cell renewal, and soothes and softens the skin surface. Its rich supply of silica, potassium, magnesium, and other minerals further improves the appearance of aging skin by promoting collagen formation. Horsetail is also a gentle natural astringent that cleanses and tones the complexion without drying it out. With so many skin-rejuvenating properties, it’s no wonder horsetail is often called the Beauty Herb!

The purity and safety of the ethically grown and tested horsetail extract in LaVie Organique™ toner, serum, and other Original Formula products is guaranteed. Certified by qualified third-party inspectors, this 100% organic ingredient is free of all pesticides and other harmful chemicals. So, you can enjoy the revitalizing benefits of my horsetail-enriched formulas with complete confidence.
