Tremella fuciformis (snow mushroom fruiting body extract):
Tremella mushroom belongs to the jelly fungus family and has many different names. In Chinese, it’s called silver ear mushroom. It’s commonly referred to as snow fungus, snow mushroom and beauty mushroom, due to its long-standing use in China. Tremella is known for its ability to nourish, hydrate, moisturize and improve skin elasticity.
Tremella mushroom contains unique polysaccharide compounds that show remarkable water retaining properties. Tremella acts similarly to Hyaluronic Acid by pulling moisture to the skin but while Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1000 times its weight in water, Tremella mushroom is said to hold 5 times more water.

The skin benefits of Reishi mushroom include reducing the appearance of skin irritation, puffiness, wrinkles and free radical damage, while also promoting cell turnover.

The stressors can be environmental or physical, which can cause skin changes like deterioration, ageing, wrinkles, scarring and more. Chaga also contains Betulonic acid which aids in skin resurfacing and rejuvenation.
