This mushroom really is magic! White Snow Mushroom (formally referred to as tremella fuciformis) has been used for centuries to aid in vitality and overall wellness. Read on to discover four reasons why White Snow Mushroom earned the nickname “moisture magnet” and why it is a holy grail ingredient for transforming your skin from within!
1. Draws Moisture Deep Into The Skin
One of the key functions of all facial serums is moisturization. While many skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and glycerin are known for their powerful hydrating abilities, none of them provide deep hydration as aptly as White Snow Mushroom. This is due to White Snow Mushroom’s high content of polysaccharides, which are responsible for the skin's natural ability to hydrate and retain water as well as giving it a protective barrier. White Snow Mushroom earns its nickname “moisture magnet” because it can hold up to 500x its weight in water! When used as a skincare ingredient, White Snow Mushroom draws moisture deep beneath the skin’s surface resulting in dramatically plump, bright and hydrated skin.

2. Supports Collagen Production
The primary role of collagen in the body is to provide structure and support for our skin, bones, and connective tissues. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen over time which can result in thin and fragile skin, fine lines and wrinkles and a dull complexion. In order to prevent skin from showing signs of aging prematurely, using skincare products that stimulate collagen production is key! White Snow Mushroom is naturally rich in both polysaccharides that promote collagen synthesis and amino acids that support optimum collagen production in the skin. When applied topically through skincare products such as SundaSkin™, our all-in-one serum, White Snow Mushroom’s mighty benefits are brought deep beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production and prevent fine lines and wrinkles– resulting in a plump, youthful complexion.
3. Combats Inflammation and Provides a Boost of Antioxidants
Inflammation is a common skin symptom that gets in the way of achieving clear and glowing skin. While inflammation is the body’s natural defense to injury or infection, when it occurs in healthy tissues or persists over a long period of time it can be particularly damaging. Inflammation in the body accelerates aging by breaking down valuable collagen and elastin and can appear as rashes or redness, acne, and discoloration of the skin. White Snow Mushroom’s high content of polysaccharides as well as Vitamin A (boosts skin cell turnover,) Vitamin C (promotes bright, ageless skin,) and Vitamin D (calms inflammation and boost skin’s immune system,) provide natural antioxidant and antibacterial benefits to the skin, strengthening the skin barrier by drawing moisture deep beneath the surface, combatting symptoms of inflammation before they have the ability to appear on the skin’s surface.
4. Brightens Skin
One of the most powerful benefits of White Snow Mushroom is its ability to promote bright, evenly toned skin! In addition to providing anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits beneath the skin’s surface, White Snow Mushroom contains kojic acid, an ingredient that works by inhibiting tyrosine from forming and further inhibiting melanin production on the skin’s surface. Kojic acid can help lighten visible sun damage, scarring, dark spots and hyperpigmentation and supports an overall bright and luminous complexion from the inside out.
SundaSkin™, our all-in-one serum combines White Snow Mushroom with a blend of technologically advanced actives to deeply hydrate skin, lock in moisture, and dramatically improve skin’s elasticity and firmness while evening texture, tone and boosting luminosity. The result? Healthy and renewed skin that glows everywhere you go.
