Lentinus Edodes extract, shiitake mushroom extract – Finland, organic


Shiitake mushroom is an adaptogenic mushroom that has been used as a herb in Chinese medicine and cooking for thousands of years. It is also a popular active ingredient in cosmetics. Shiitake mushroom extract brightens and calms inflammation and irritation, evens out skin colour and enhances skin regeneration. It accelerates the healing of skin damage and scars. As well as a high concentration of antioxidants, trace elements, polysaccharides and amino acids, the extract contains kojic acid, which suppresses the activity of the tyrosinase enzyme, preventing the formation of dark pigment spots. Shiitake mushroom extract is a particularly good active ingredient for sensitive, red, atopic or dry skin, and for the treatment of pigment spots, scars and lines.
