Ingredient Highlight: Reishi Mushroom

The reishi mushroom, a staple in traditional Chinese medicine, is making its way into skincare across the globe. Packed with skin-boosting properties, it’s been nicknamed the “herb of immortality”. (And who doesn’t want that?!)

Found throughout Asia, the reishi mushroom, or ganoderma lucidum, sprouts up on dying trees. It has a distinct fan shape, develops a shiny, red-orange outer coating and can grow to be a foot wide. 

The fungus has high levels of polysaccharides, or molecules that help the skin retain moisture. 

Beta-glucans, naturally occurring polysaccharides in the reishi mushroom, soothe dry and itchy skin. They penetrate multiple layers of skin, reaching areas that other ingredients cannot reach.

The reishi mushroom also contains over 400 active compounds including antioxidants, Vitamin D and Vitamin B3. These compounds help fight free radical damage, improving the skin’s overall health.

Thanks to a powerful blend of polysaccharides, vitamins and antioxidants, reishi mushrooms hydrate, soothe, calm and restore skin.
