red chestnut=red chestnut


Explanation:

As far as the essence of this red flower (Aesculus cornea)became a widely known comercial (cosmetics)product I would suggest to leave as it is "Red Chestnut". Because to translate verbatim "La chataigne rouge" that's make no sense. Even in many French articles they use the term like that in English.

Best regards,
