What Is Snow Mushroom?
Snow mushroom, formally known as Tremella fuciformis, is a fungus that has been used traditionally in Eastern medicinal philosophies for thousands of years. It is now becoming increasingly popular in Western beauty, and some are even dubbing it as the “next hyaluronic acid.”
Snow Mushroom Vs. Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid can normally hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. According to studies, the particles in snow mushrooms are smaller in size than those in hyaluronic acid, so it tends to penetrate the skin easier. This allows your skin to soak up even more moisture!
Is Snow Mushroom the New Hyaluronic Acid?
Found in our Hydrating Mist, snow mushrooms are high in fatty acids, which help to retain moisture, in addition to stabilizing the barrier of your skin. Mushrooms, in general, have anti-inflammatory properties that can help to calm and comfort your skin. They are also a source of kojic acid, which is an ingredient most commonly known for fighting dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
