GANODERMA LUCIDUM EXTRACT (Reishi Mushroom)

INCI: Ganoderma lucidum extract / Ganoderma lucidum stem extract

What is Ganoderma lucidum extract?

Genoderma lucidum or also known as Lingzi or Reishi is an oriental mushroom, historically used in Japan, China, and other Asian countries. It’s a glossy looking large and dark mushroom. The extract is rich in carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins and minerals. However other active constituents include polysaccharides, triterpenes, and peptidoglycans. It is also rich in essential amino acids lysine and leucine.

Use & Benefits:

Mushroom extract contains various triterpenes, polyphenolic acids, and vitamins which are antioxidants. So, when applied topically, they help prevent ongoing oxidative damage and free radicals damage. These oxidation and free radicals damage often weaken or break the skin cell network made up of collagen and elastin. As a result fine lines and wrinkles appear. When the extract is used continuously, it also reverses the damage already caused by this oxidative stress and brings a noticeable change in skins appearance. Another advantage of using the extract is it lightens the skin discoloration. It decreases melanin synthesis and other pigment-related problems such as pigmentation, dark patches. It aid in reducing inflammation and anti-allergenic. Polyphenolic acids or coumarins it helps decrease the release of histamine and thus any redness or itchiness is reduced. It is used in skincare products, creams, lotions, gels, and cosmetics.
