Have you heard of the truffle skin care boom? There are many species of fungi and some offer phenomenal benefits for the skin.

One type of mushroom that has impressed our cosmetic scientists is the Northern Truffle (Albatrellus Confluens), a mushroom skin care ingredient with proven benefits for all skin types, and especially those with sensitive or compromised skin.

So, should you try a truffle face cream? Find out what you can expect from this soothing mushroom with our guide to the benefits of truffle beauty products.


Why mushroom skin care?

Mushrooms are known to be rich in antioxidants, copper, potassium, beta glucan and vitamin B (riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid) but can mushroom skin care really boost our beauty?

According to scientists it can! Research has found some species of fungi are rich in antioxidant properties needed to help slow skin ageing. Trendy truffles don’t just taste great; some have been shown to contain skin nutrients that support a strong skin barrier and beautifully soft skin.

Truffle benefits for skin

Northern Truffle is a brilliant example of a mushroom that’s bursting with skin benefits.

Found in Finnish forests, this skin care truffle is rich in phenols which have strong antioxidant properties and Grifolin that help to ease skin discomfort and prevent the sensation of itching.




This makes a truffle face cream an excellent choice for those with sensitive or damaged skin, and for using after shaving or sun exposure.

Northern Truffle has even been shown by clinical trials to be a neuro-soother that extends the feel-good zone of stressed and irritated skin. It does so by inhibiting receptors in the skin responsible for inflammation, irritation, and pain.


4 tremendous Northern Truffle benefits for skin:

  • Reduces discomfort by instantly soothing skin
  • Increases skin tolerance to irritants to prevent hypersensitivity
  • Augments the pain threshold and reduces the perception of stinging, itching, and burning 
  • Protects against infrared stress by suppressing skin reddening and inflammatory reaction

FUN FUNGI FACT: Northern Truffle has remarkable properties and works through thick layers of ice to operate as a control centre for the conifers that grow in enchanting Finnish forests, helping trees to communicate and feed.

These powerful properties make these magical mushrooms an ideal skin neuro-soother for extending the feel-good zone of stressed and irritated skin.
