Indena announces the successful REACH registration of Escin

Escin and horse chestnut derivatives are of strategic importance in the realm of botanical active ingredients, being used in some of the best-selling products both in the pharmaceutical and personal care markets

Indena confirms its continuous improvement in the supply chain of Escin and horse chestnut derivatives, acknowledging the successful completion of the registration of ESCIN in accordance with the REACH regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 as lead registrant.

So far Indena is the only company that has completed the full registration, following the preregistration stage that ended in 2018.

As such, the company has generated the relevant data including the complex chemical characterisation, fully developed the technical dossier and successfully managed the submission of the registration dossier to ECHA.

"The full characterisation, presented at ECHA, uniquely describes our product," said Elena Uberti for Indena REACH Project.

The horse chestnut derivatives market is not a commodity like arena, owing to the necessary high-quality standards and analytical complexity of its products.

With this registration, Indena reconfirms its global leadership in the segment and is able to guarantee the highest expertise in sourcing, manufacturing and releasing horse chestnut derivatives.
