Horsetail butter is one of our most sought after butters. Horsetail is ideal for skincare products. Horsetail oil extract is used to help boost natural collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and it helps to pull impurities from the body. Horsetail butter works great in soap making. This creates a creamy bar with super hydration, and lots of natural silica to help strengthen the skin.
Horsetail extract is an excellent source of natural silica. Silica is what helps to reinforce our bones and make our skin healthier. Consider using horsetail butter in your body butter or facial cleansing cream. The strong silica and antioxidant profile of horsetail oil makes it ideal for anti-aging skin care products.
Horsetail is also considered a natural anti-bacterial and antiseptic. This makes horsetail butter an excellent ingredient to help protect the skin from bacteria. Consider using horsetail butter as your base for an eczema or psoriasis cream. Blend with some natural honey, shea butter and a soothing essential oil blend of rosemary and peppermint to help calm the skin and protect it at the same time.
The high level of silica in horsetail makes horsetail butter one of the best ingredients to help strengthen natural nails. The same way that silica can help strengthen your bones and boost collagen production in your skin, it can help to make your natural nails stronger and longer. Consider adding horsetail butter to your hand cream.
Horsetail butter is also an excellent base for any hair care mask, cream or conditioner. The silica in horsetail butter will help repair damaged hair and can help to boost hair growth. Add horsetail butter along with organic argan oil, Oregon hazelnut and organic castor oil to create a scalp and hair treatment. Add in some essential oils like peppermint, tea tree and bergamot to create a stimulating blend.
