Cosmetics and vital mushrooms

 

Vital mushrooms in cosmetics and their effects on the skin and hair

Vital mushrooms have been known for millennia for their beneficial effects on the human body. People commonly use them internally to take advantage of the remarkable gifts of nature, which have been tested for many centuries not only by traditional Chinese medicine. But what if their exceptional effects were usable even when used externally? Yes, just as the power of plants is used in natural cosmetics, so can the effects of extracts from vital mushrooms like Reishi, Shiitake or Cordyceps be used. Why use such cosmetics and what can vital mushrooms do when used externally?

After many and many years when medicinal mushrooms slowly but surely crept into the consciousness of Europeans and became part of the diet or health promotion in the form of food supplements for internal use, it was time for their further use: in cosmetics. These mushrooms are full of active substances that also benefit the skin. Although there are not many studies on the use of their spectacular beneficial effects on the skin or hair, i.e., in the field of caring cosmetics, a few have confirmed the caring abilities of extracts from these mushrooms. They have a decent antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory potential – and so they can finally become helpers in the fragile beauty sector. So what are their specific effects in natural cosmetics?

Brightening the skin

Natural cosmetics takes care of the skin and does something extra – plant extracts often nourish, heal, beautify – in short, they transfer their rare properties to the product that contains them. This is also the case with vital mushrooms. Some mushrooms reduce melanin and help brighten the skin. Thanks to their active ingredients, the skin is unified, and unwanted pigmentation also fades. For these effects, look for Shiitake, Reishi and Maitake mushrooms in the ingredients of cosmetics.

Perfectly hydrated

Hydrated skin equals beautiful skin. Surely you know this well - dry skin tends to be irritated, loses brightness and elasticity. In addition to the so important hydration from the inside (drinking regime), it is good to find helpers in the world of cosmetics which will take care of maintaining hydration by acting on the surface of the skin. Some mushrooms contain a polysaccharide that attracts moisture similar to hyaluronic acid. These are, for example, Cordyceps or Maitake, mushrooms that do not let even very dry skin suffer.

Goodbye, wrinkles

Unfortunately, scientists have not yet discovered a miracle product that will make you younger by tens of years during the night. However, there are several ways to visibly rejuvenate and beautify your skin. Help can be provided by anti-aging products with vital mushrooms that increase the skin immunity can help. Again, it is necessary to look into the composition of mushrooms: they contain active substances that help restore skin elasticity, increase its hydration and stimulate collagen synthesis. Increasing the elasticity of the skin together with unification of its tone? Some mushrooms will help you regain such beautiful and balanced skin: Reishi and Cordyceps can do it.

Anti-inflammatory properties

Inflammation and excessive activity of free radicals can cause unpleasant skin problems which manifest themselves by redness, pimples and other unsightly manifestations, which the skin uses to simply defend itself. Chaga, Maitake, Shiitake and other mushrooms have anti-inflammatory properties. When applied externally, these species can promote healing, reduce inflammation and replenish vitamin D necessary for the skin. According to scientists, they could also be suitable for eczema, rosacea and acne, but they will also help hypersensitive skin which often reacts too sharply to external stimuli.
