Repair UV photo-aging and prevent skin damage with polysaccharides and polyphenols

Posted by Veronica Sywak on

 Snow mushroom extract may also increase natural hyaluronic acid while also increasing other fibers needed for healthy skin, such as collagen and elastin.

  • provides excellent moisturising and anti-wrinkle effects
  • improves skin texture and flexibility
  • minimises UV photo damage and hyperpigmentation
  • protects existing collagen
  • pulls moisture to the skin
  • is rich in plant polyphenols that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.


Say au revoir to hyperpigmentation, sun spots and fine lines.

Snow Mushroom has two key elements that boost the beauty, elasticity and radiance of our skin:

  1. Polysaccharides 
  2. Polyphenols

Polysaccharides are responsible for the skin’s ability to hydrate and retain moisture, and they are critical for skin repair and renewal. 

Polyphenols are micronutrients that are gifted to us through certain plant-based foods. They are rich in antioxidants that protect cells from damage. 

Polyphenols that have been shown to have high antioxidant activity that help reverse signs of ageing like sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as hyperpigmentation.

Snow Mushroom is unique in that it is a rich source of both polyphenols and polysaccharides.

The combination of these two components, polysaccharides and polyphenols, makes PURE SNOW ideal for use in skin care by:

  • aiding skin hydration and protecting the skin barrier
  • providing anti-inflammatory effects and supporting skin repair through regeneration
  • preventing further skin damage. 

Dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity are caused by two factors: damage to the skin’s barrier, causing water loss, and a natural reduction in the concentration of polysaccharides in the skin (from ageing and external factors such as sun exposure, smoking and environmental exposure). 

A diet rich in polysaccharides can help repair this damage, and the addition of the antioxidant properties of polyphenol help prevent further damage.

That’s what is so unique about Snow Mushroom – it is rich in the essential polysaccharides for skin, as well as the polyphenols that act as powerful antioxidants.  

Other sources of polyphenols and polysaccharides include coconuts.

We’ve created a delicious Juicy Mango Coconut Cream with PURE SNOW to keep your skin protected, hydrated and radiant. Take a sneak peek at the recipe here.
