The Snow Mushroom an Anti-aging Dynamo for Skincare
A mushroom for skincare?
Tremella fuciformis is a snow mushroom. It looks more like a fluffy sea sponge than a fungus. The snow mushroom is a tropical gelatinous mushroom that has been used in Chinese medicine and cooking for thousands of years. It is making its rounds in skincare thanks to its amazing, 100% natural skin enhancing properties. It is considered nature’s hyaluronic acid.
Why snow mushrooms are good for skin.
Snow mushrooms contain polysaccharides (a bunch of sugar molecules that have water binding properties) that help to hydrate the skin by binding moisture to its surface. How much moisture? Well, the snow mushroom can hold 500x its weight in moisture and the particles are small enough to penetrate the skin. The result is a natural “puffing” of the skin by effective moisturization. This can result in reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only is it a powerhouse moisturizer, but it can also aid in the production of collagen and enhance skin elasticity. Another benefit of snow mushroom for the skin is that it is gentle for even the most sensitive skin. All good things, right?
Where to find a product with snow mushroom?
The Rose Water Gel Moisturizer contains snow mushroom extract. One of our reviewers calls it a “hug for your skin”. This moisturizer also contains niacinamide which is great for moisture retention, anti-aging, collagen and ceramide production, sebum regulation, and hyperpigmentation. Niacinamide containing products can also reduce irritation associated with retinoid use. The benefits of niacinamide for the skin can be seen with consistent use around four to eight weeks and for wrinkles and anti-aging benefits around twelve weeks.
