Snow mushrooms are a fungus species that traditionally was found growing in the wild on dead wood. The first known cultivators of this mushroom were the Chinese in the 19th century, as they discovered that the mushroom provided medicinal and cosmetic benefits in both ingestible and externally applicable mediums.
Mushroom Benefits For Skin
The main benefit of Snow Mushroom is it provides hydration to the skin. Just like Hyaluronic Acid, it's a humectant that draws and binds water into the skin.
Stress plays a significant role in skin health: It increases inflammation, contributes to premature aging and can trigger hormonal imbalance. As adaptogens, mushrooms help mitigate your skin’s response to stress; they identify where your body is imbalanced and coax it back to baseline. In skin care, they also assist in distributing active ingredients to where they’re needed most, helping your skin stay strong, hydrated and healthy.
