Easy enough, right? Using this simple mask two or three times a week won’t take up much of your time, and its hero ingredient, reishi, will efficiently reduce inflammation at the cellular level. Here’s how.

This functional health mushroom varietal is one of the most highly studied superfoods on earth, comprised of skin-boosting nutrients that produce real results.

Reishi contains mega-healing chemical compounds called triterpenes. These wonder molecules have stellar anti-inflammatory properties, reducing redness even when applied topically.

Reishi contains immune-boosting macronutrients called polysaccharides. These friendly sugars help prevent acne bacteria from getting cozy.

Premature skin aging
Reishi’s magical anti-aging combination of both triterpenes and polysaccharides effectively fight environmental free radicals like pollution, pesticides, and even toxic home cleaners.

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I want to use it for several reasons but the main reason is redness. I love all those natural ingredients you use.

    Hi! Can we use regular local, raw honey if we don’t want to spend as much on the Manuka??
