Studies suggest that tremella mushroom, an exotic mushroom similar to shiitake and reishi, helps increase moisture in the body and nourish the lungs, stomach and kidneys. In addition, it has shown to be useful as a beauty aid by moisturizing the skin. Mushroom Wisdom’s products provide support for “healthy skin, inside and out.”
For “outside” beauty, Mushroom Wisdom offers Aquamella Cream. This skin cream, which Mushroom Wisdom says is the “beauty secret of a legend,” Chinese beauty Yang Guifei, combines tremella mushrooms and pearls. Tremella’s unique polysaccharide GXM has powerful water-absorbing and –
retaining ability, which benefits youthful and vibrant skin. GXM has been scientifically proven to hold 25% more water than its competitor, sodium hyaluronic acid, which is often used in other skin care products. Aquamella Cream also has pearl powder which, according to research, slows the development of pigmentation, reducing skin discoloration and lightening uneven skin tone. Pearl powder has also been found to minimize large pores and reduce redness. Aquamella Cream contains minerals and amino acids for healthy cells and tissues.
SRP: $49.95, 2-oz jar.
