Snow mushroom aka Tremella Fuciformis is THE plant-based alternative for hyaluronic acid.
It’s extracted from an edible jelly white mushroom and has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine. Snow fungus is a popular anti-aging supplement.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is also known as hyaluronan, which is a sugar naturally found in our skin.
The main function is to retain water and keep your skin hydrated and plump. This jellly-like super moisturizer from the flowery sponge-like white mushroom, can just like hyaluronic acid holding up to 1.000 times it's weight in water to help lock in moisture. Besides it’s responsible for skin cell renewal, for increasing the skin elasticity and for boosting the collagen production. Unfortunately, as we age less hyaluronan is made by our body.
Traditionally hyaluronic acid is made from animal waste or synthetically made. That's why we're using this plant-based form.
The benefits of snow mushroom? Besides it’s natural (not synthetic or animal derived), it improves the moisture level of our skin, it lessens fine lines and wrinkles and gives our skin a more youthful appearance.
Some foods are rich in hyaluronic acid as well, like root vegetables and soy products.
