Bioactive constituents proved by modern research
Tremella fuciformis contains vitamin B1, B2, D, niacin, mannitol, glycerol, glucose, trehalose, hemicellulose, chitin, pectin,
glucuronoxylomannan and lignin.Polysaccharides are one of the main bioactive components of Tremella fuciformis, and it has
higher water holding capability than hyaluronic acid. Modern research indicates that polysaccharides from Tremella fuciformis
has immunomodulatory, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities as well as it lowers blood glucose, cholesterol, and protects
against radiation. It is known to have the ability to induce human monocytes to produce interleukines (IL-1 and IL-6) and tumor
necrosis factor in vitro.
Fine Mushroom HA from Tremella fuciformis
Fine Mushroom HA is a strong moisturizing bioactive component made by applying FINECO’s unique technology to the Tremella
fuciformis mushroom, which contains mostly water soluble heteropolysaccharides consisted of a (1→3)-mannan backbone with
xylose- and glucuronic acid-containing side chains. Fine Mushroom HA is a mushroom-derived hyaluronic acid, because it
contains lots of glucuronic acid (about 18%) as hyaluronic acid does. Fine Mushroom HA has higher water holding capability than
sodium hyaluronate, and gives excellent moisturizing effect to the skin with soft and better touch feeling than sodium hyaluronate.
Fine Mushroom HA is a good biomaterial as a plant-derived strong moisturizer for skin care products with good stability and
