TREMELLA FUCIFORMIS POLYSACCHARIDE (SNOW MUSHROOM)
Snow mushrooms are a gorgeous gelatinous-appearing fungus found in traditional Chinese medicine as far back as the Tang Dynasty. This ingredient, favored by one of China's four great beauties, is said to increase skin elasticity, reduce inflammation—and, in its natural form, hold a thousand times its weight in water, making it a mighty moisturizer. It's widely regarded as the natural, vegan cousin of hyaluronic acid. Fun fact: it is even found in a popular dessert for its skin-hydrating properties!
SCUTELLARIA BAICALENSIS ROOT EXTRACT
This traditional root extract is known as Huang Qin amongst practitioners of Chinese traditional medicine or goldflower root extract. Its component Ougon Liquid B prevents skin aging due to environmental stress and protects the skin from pollutants and free radicals. The antioxidant activity of this extract makes it a soothing, anti-ageing ingredient as well as an anti-inflammatory one and keeps skin plump, tight, and smooth for a youthful appearance. P.S. Goldflower root extract is purported to treat cancer, arthritis, and hepatitis, and could be a TCM solution in the battle against Covid-19
