Scoti-Horsetail SPD
INCI name: Equisetum Fluviatile Extract
Equisetum fluviatile commonly known as water horsetail or swamp horsetail grows well in shallow water or swamps. Equisetum
means 'horsetail' and fluviatile, the species name, means 'growing in rivers' in latin. E.limosum, E.heleocharis, and E.maximum
are synonyms of E.fluviatile. It is abundant in Great Britain, especially Scotland. It is often confused with marsh horsetail
(E.palustre). Water horsetail has hollow stems and lacks proper flowers and leaves. The stems contain the constituents used in
skin care and the dried stems are used as an herb tea.
Medicinally, water horsetail was used as treatment for eye infections and for skin problems. However, scientific research on its
pharmaceutical effects or nutritional benefit has still to be done. Chemical analysis of its constituents identified protoapigenine,
protogenkwanone, and their derivatives. Another study on its phenolic compounds suggested antioxidant and antimicrobial
activities.
