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.
Mushroom Extract is used in skincare to naturally brighten the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation.
Mushroom extracts offer benefits such as: - Provide anti-inflammatory benefits, helping to soothe and calm irritated or sensitive skin. - Act as antioxidants, protecting the skin from oxidative stress and environmental damage caused by free radicals. - Can help improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and reduce redness or discoloration.
