The reishi mushroom, also known as Ganoderma lucidum and lingzhi, is a fungus that grows in various hot and humid locations in Asia.
There are many benefits to this adaptogenic ingredient - here are 4 key benefits
Fights free radicals
This adaptogen consists of antioxidants ergothioneine and reduced glutathione. These prevent premature ageing and free radical formation as well as enhance sun protection.
Alleviates redness and irritation
The polysaccharides in the reishi mushroom provide humectants and deeply hydrating benefits. This means that they may also decrease the fine lines and wrinkles, as well as repair and reinforce the moisture barrier.
Fades acne scars
The reishi mushroom inhibits the melanin-producing enzyme tyrosinase and is helpful in reducing skin pigmentation and discolouration.
