Magic Mushrooms

Magic Mushrooms

Latest cosmeceutical technologies have allowed us to create an exotic skin serum that delivers high level of efficacy using Shiitake (Lentinus Edodes), Mannantake and Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum) Mushroom. 'Derma' is right there in it's latin INCI name. MC2 scientific research shows that the Mogu extract complex exhibits anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties which assist the body in combatting disease and therefore, prevent aging. The remarkable effects of the lingzhi mushroom are mediated via the antioxidant, hypotensive, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties of the mushroom.

Mushrooms have been scientifically proven to have anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties which assist the body in fending off diseases like Polio, Hepatitis B, HIV, Influenza, HSV-1 and HSV-2 as well as the small pox virus. Extracts from mushrooms have proven to be effective in improving the health of skin and appearance of oxidative aging due to environmental exposure.  These same mushrooms have also shown in studies to affect skin's ability to repair itself when in contact with the sun, ironic considering a mushroom grows in the darkness.

An in-depth analysis of mushrooms in the 70's, also led to some advantageous discoveries. Scientists discovered that  enzymes present in the stipe can be used in the manufacture of detergents. On the other hand, toxic elements in some mushroom species that the plant presumably uses to deter predators (including humans); can be used to produce environmentally friendly pesticides. So the uses of the mushroom are diverse and full circle.

Mushrooms have also proven to be beneficial in the field of biotechnology. It is already being used to spur plant growth and or lower the level of bacterial contamination in water. The US patent and Trademark Office has registered different patents in relation to the specialized fields of mycoremediation, a cleaning process where contaminants are biodegraded to clean the environment and mycofiltration, a filtration process that gets rid of disease causing elements like the bacteria, e coli and the protozoa, plasmodium falciparum.

In 2013, the US Davis School of medicine in collaboration with US Davis Comprehensive Cancer Centre continues to do research on the impact extracts from mushroom have on patients of prostate cancer, and they are very optimistic about the results.

The Mushrooms and Health 2012 report that was prepared by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) confirmed the health benefits of the mushroom. CSIRO is Australia's biggest food research organization.

It is therefore evident from all its various uses, medical and most importantly its dietary benefits it is clear that mushroom is the most significant fungus after penicillin.

Fight the Aging of Skin with Epigenetics

In the personal care industry, epigenetic science refers to the use of specific active ingredients that are able to modify cellular activity for visible skin benefits. For example, some beneficial cellular modifications specific to materials used in cosmeceutical personal care products may include: cell proliferation stimulated to improve tissue regeneration, regeneration of skin cells in-spite of their age – enabling older skin cells to mimic the activity of younger skin cells, which results in a more youthful appearance, and/or stimulating skin renewal and turnover.

MC2Beauty serums provide visible results - and rapidly.
