One of these ingredients that we treasure for all the benefits it can bring to your skin is the tremella fuciformis. You may also know it by the more common names of the tremella mushroom or snow mushroom. What it can bring to your skincare routine is nothing short of phenomenal. Let’s take an in-depth look at the tremella fuciformis in skincare, so you know exactly how this little mushroom is going to give you big results in your skin.
The History of Tremella Fuciformis
The tremella fuciformis or snow mushroom is truly part of the fungus family. It produces large white fungi that almost look, like a large sea creature. Mainly grown in the tropics, this mushroom species is sometimes called a snow fungus or white jelly mushroom. Although the tremella fuciformis may look a little strange to us, it’s been around in modern times since the mid-1800s when it was discovered in Brazil by English mycologists. Those are the scientists that specifically study mushroom fungus.
While this species mainly thrives in tropical environments, like Central America, the Caribbean, Southern Asia, and even in Australia, it has been known to grow up in the warmer parts of North America as well.
The ancient Chinese have actually used the mushroom for much longer. They figured out very quickly how useful this mushroom can be in medicine, but it was also used in cooking because of its mild quality that works well in sweeter foods. They also found out that using the tremella fuciformis in cosmetics and skincare was an intelligent use of the mushroom. In Korea, Japan, and China, this ingredient has been used for thousands of years in skincare. The western world has only recently discovered just how beneficial the snow mushroom can be for skin health and wellness.
The Benefits of the Tremella Fuciformis
So what exactly does the Tremella Fuciformis mushroom do for skin? As an active ingredient the gelatinous mushroom, because of its structure, can provide exceptional and lasting hydration for the skin. The properties of this as a skincare ingredient act very much like hyaluronic acid, because it draws moisture into the skin and plumps it up in the process. By infusing the skin with natural moisture, it becomes more radiant, looks healthy, and the appearance of lines and wrinkles is greatly diminished.
Since the molecules that make up the snow mushroom are so tiny, it has the ability to penetrate the skin more readily than other skincare ingredients. There are other benefits that snow mushroom brings to your skin as well. It can increase the elasticity to make your skin look more youthful and bright.
A Free Radical Fighting Powerhouse
Tremella Fuciformis also has the ability to fight against free radical damage in the skin that is due to pollution in the environment. Those free radicals can harm and age the skin over time, so having a powerful ingredient, like the snow mushroom, to combat this problem is very important for skin health. This can lead to less inflammation and irritation in the skin, making it look more flawless and resistant to age related issues.
Age, sun, or dark spots are lightened up by the active ingredients in the snow mushroom. It tends to slow down the skin’s production of melanin, which causes the dark spots. You’ll have brighter skin that is much more even in tone and texture.
Even More Benefits for Acne Prone Skin
When you have old acne scars, the snow mushroom can also help to fade those due to the high content of vitamin D. It can also stimulate cell turnover and growth to help heal and get rid of those acne blemishes even faster.
If you have sensitive skin, you’ll love that the snow mushroom is very gentle and isn’t known to cause skincare reactions, like other harsh ingredients are known to cause.
All the many benefits of this mushroom truly are a boon to the skincare industry. But it’s specifically the anti-aging properties of this amazing mushroom which is why we started to use it in one of our skincare products, the Sdara Skincare Eye Gel Mask.
The Sdara Skincare Eye Gel Mask has Tremella Mushroom
We are so proud of the skincare technology that went into the creation of our Eye Gel Mask. This is an eye mask that can do wonders for the eye area. It can brighten dark circles, plump up dehydrated skin (thank you snow mushroom!), firm the skin, and even gives you a more youthful and refreshed looking eye area.
With an infusion of natural snow mushroom, peptides, and sodium hyaluronate, this mask immediately soothes and improves the eye area. It treats the total eye area, from the top of the brow bone to underneath the eye, where those pesky crow’s feet tend to show up first. By plumping this area up with the moisture that the snow mushroom can bring, you’ll have less noticeable fine lines around the eye area. Dark circles and puffiness are also improved.
Plus, it’s fragrance free, has no parabens, and is sulfate and dye free. It’s nothing you don't want and everything that your eye area will love.
How to Use the Eye Gel Mask
The way you use the Eye Gel Mask is on clean skin. Gently place the eye mask sheet on each of your eyes and press firmly to make it adhere. Then you just leave it on for 25-30 minutes. When you remove the masks, lightly tap in the nourishing serum to receive the full benefits. You can use it in the morning or at night, ideally a few times per week.
It’s the best way to nourish and improve the eye area. Any type of skin can use this product. You’ll love how much brighter and youthful the eye area looks with each and every use.
