Mushroom Extract

Mushroom extracts are derived from various types of mushrooms, such as shiitake, reishi, and chaga. In skincare, they are used for their potential anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and skin-soothing properties. Studies have shown that compounds from specific mushroom types can inhibit tyrosinase activity (an enzyme involved in melanin synthesis), which in turn visibly minimises areas of hyperpigmentation. Mushroom extract is a class of ingredients also known by fomes officinalis (mushroom) extract, fomes officinalis (mushroom) extract and polyporus umbellatus (mushroom) extract.
