Shiitake Mushroom ferment
DESCRIPTION: Shiitake Bioferment Extract is a multifunctional extract with anti-oxidant, anti-ageing, and skin-lightening properties. It also possesses anti-irritant and anti-microbial benefits. Shiitake Bioferment extract contains vitamins A, B, C & D, beta-glucan, potassium, zinc, and polysaccharides.
It moisturizes the skin and promotes the production of epithelial growth actors essential for wound healing. It acts against age spots and helps fade away uneven skin tone. Shiitake contains a high level of kojic acid – minus the stability issue. It degrades – breaks down melanin, resulting in fading dark pigmented areas of the skin. It is recommended for anti-ageing skin care, skin lightening, and soothing formulations to reduce irritation and help protect and heal the skin.
In hair care, it smoothens and improves strength and elasticity and prevents thermal hair damage.
