Hericium Erinaceum Extract

Lion’s Mane extract – Finland, organic

Lion’s Mane is an adaptogenic mushroom that has been used traditionally especially in Asia due to its potential health benefits. The mushroom contains high levels of polysaccharides and diterpenoids. Lion’s Mane hydrates, protects the skin from free radicals and supports the collagen production making it a particularly good ingredient for healthy ageing and acne scars.

Most of the world’s adaptogenic mushroom extracts are produced from fungal grains and fungal mycelium, not from the actual fruiting bodies. Djusie is the world’s first and only cosmetic line that uses Finnish, organically grown and very high-quality Lion’s Mane extract, which is extracted entirely from fruiting bodies instead of grains and mycelium. The active ingredients of the mushroom are found in the fruiting bodies. The producer of Djusie’s Lion’s Mane extract specialises in the cultivation and extraction of, and research into, adaptogenic mushrooms.
