The gelatinous snow mushroom looks more like something you’d find in the Great Barrier Reef than your average mushroom. We like to say that it’s a natural, even-better version of hyaluronic acid because, like hyaluronic acid, it pulls moisture to the skin when applied topically. Snow mushroom can hold up to 500 times its weight in water (half that of its hyaluronic acid counterpart) but it excels because its particles are smaller and can penetrate the skin more easily for intense hydration. Snow mushroom also contains polysaccharides, which are anti-inflammatory and increase the functionality of the skin barrier by preventing water loss.
Tremella fuciformis, aptly named and also known as ‘white jelly leaf,’ is a traditional Yin tonic in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and while not well known in the West there are over 100 published scientific papers on the use of this mushroom. Tremella is said to have an affinity for the skin, lungs, stomach, and kidneys. It is an excellent remedy to consider whenever you need to bring moisture back to the body; examples of this include dry cough, dry skin, vaginal dryness and even dry eyes. (It makes a wonderful remedy for contact wearers who always have to put drops in their eyes.
