Fungi For The Skin?

(Yes, you read that correctly. We'll share more below.)

Many people, especially in Asian populations use fungi to cook and make savoury meals, and use it as herbal medicine. But to use fungi in skincare sounds a bit far-fetched right?

Well, it is not because it turns out that fungi actually has a lot of useful and nutritious properties for the largest organ in our body- our skin. To be more exact, we use the term #betaglucan or #mushglucan to address the polysaccharide taken from the fungi to be placed into our skincare formula.

What does Beta Glucan do?

This beta gluten is claimed to be able to cure redness in skin, #calm, #soothe and protect the skin barrier. What's more is that they fend off bacteria that could disrupt the skin's barrier even further. "Beta-glucans work by stimulating the macrophages (they work to fight off invading pathogens that can cause infections) and stimulate other immune cells to attack pathogens," according to Engelman. "Think of them as ringleaders." For this reason, they're especially suited to people who have dry, rough, or cracked skin. "For those who have compromised skin barriers like eczema or dermatitis; beta-glucan can help fight virus and pathogens that pass through your skin barrier."

Additionally, beta glucan can deeply penetrate the epidermis and provide anti-ageing results since it firms and plumps up wrinkles and fine lines according to a study done by R.Pillai, M.Redmond and J.Roding authors of "Anti‐Wrinkle Therapy: Significant New Findings in the Non‐Invasive Cosmetic Treatment of Skin Wrinkles with Beta‐Glucan"

This ingredient is a new addition into our skincare formulation for all our skincare products. Beta Glucan can offer such #nurturing treatment to our skin, it is a proven #botanical ingredient with visible results. Furthermore, with the other #plant-based ingredients in our formulas, such as Aloe Vera, Germinating Bean Sprout Extract, and Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Algovital Angel products can help you revolutionise your skincare journey to achieve healthier and #glowingskin.

Here are some of our recommendations to begin with, for all skin-types.
