What is Snow Mushroom?

It’s actually a very beautiful mushroom, almost translucent and undulating like satin ribbons!

Snow mushroom has many names — snow ear, snow ear fungus, white jelly mushroom, and tremella fuciformis.

It only grows in damp areas. The fungus itself can hold and store moisture up to 500 times its weight. The texture of snow fungus is similar to that of seaweed (but chewier). Its medicinal benefits have also allowed snow fungus to take up a huge part of Asian cuisine.

Traditionally used as medicine, snow mushrooms have strong anti-bacterial qualities. These mushrooms are rich in “polysaccharides,” compounds that strengthen the immune system. This is a big factor in how it can heal your skin as well.

Mushrooms and 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.

Mushrooms distribute active ingredients to where they’re most effective in skincare. This helps your skin stay strong, hydrated and healthy.

Skincare Benefits of Snow Mushroom

How does this particular ingredient benefit our skin?

Primarily: Polysaccharides!

We’ve all heard about the hydrating hallmarks of Hyaluronic Acid. Well, Hyaluronic Acid IS a Polysaccharide. That is the primary reason for its ability to bind water to the skin (as a humectant).  Snow Mushroom is also a Polysaccharide, and (drum roll please) much more hydrating, multifunctional, and moisturizing than Hyaluronic Acid!

The main benefit of Snow Mushroom is hydration. Just like Hyaluronic Acid, it’s a humectant that draws and binds water into the skin.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) holds up to 1,000 times its weight of water, hence its cult status as a moisturizer. Snow mushroom can hold up to 500 times its weight in water, but it has smaller particles than HA. This helps it to penetrate the skin more easily, so its hydrating powers are mega potent.

Snow Mushroom extract also forms a flexible film on the surface of the skin. This is how it is able to lock in hydration. This phenomenon is similar to creating a rain cloud in your skin. It forms a naturally flexible film that traps in water and prevents it from escaping. By forming a film, it brings dry skin to its optimally hydrated state. Better enabling it to carry out key functions that keep it strong, supple and elastic.

Snow Mushroom is a better hydrator than Hyaluronic Acid–and more. Snow mushroom also aids in the natural production of collagen, a structural protein that gives skin density and volume.

Skin Healing Properties of Snow Mushroom

With over 18 kinds of amino acids, the snow mushroom has also proved to be beneficial in cell growth. Making it a prime ingredient in wound healing. The vitamin D present in this fungi also makes it great for healing acne lesions. This creates a supple hydrated and healed complexion.

The snow mushroom is composed of three powerhouse actives that nourish your complexion.

  • The first is polyphenol, a potent antioxidant that brightens the skin and fights the free-radical damage that leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration.
  • Second are triterpenes, known for mediating signs of inflammation.
  • And lastly, there are polysaccharides, which attract and hold moisture.

This impressive combination of ingredients strengthens the skin’s immune system, soothes irritation and inflammation, and provides massive hydration.

The Final Say
