Shiitake mushroom extract prevents collagen deterioration and improves the structure, organisation and quality of collagen, which results in firmer, smoother, younger looking skin.

Shiitake mushrooms, a symbol of youth and longevity, have been cultivated in Japan for over 2000 years (where it is known as Shiitake, the perfumed mushroom). In China, it was considered at the court of the emperors Ming as the ‘long life elixir’. Shiitake mushroom extract is very rich in essential amino acids, and the dense presence of kojic acid, the natural hydroquinone substitute, lightens the skin by fading away the age spots and scars.

Shiitake mushroom extract is packed with antioxidant properties, a totally natural active ingredient for strengthening the skin’s defence system by activating the immunocompetent cells (Langerhans, Macrophages and Keratinocytes cells) which control the immune response of the skin and help it to fight against environmental stressors.
