Albatrellus Confluens (Mushroom) Extract description

_Albatrellus confluens_ (mushroom) extract is an edible mushroom also known as Northern Truffle that’s native to Finland. It has a pronounced soothing effect on skin due to how it helps interrupt the irritation cascade that drives signs of sensitivity. In doing so, skin becomes visibly calmer, with diminished redness. As with other types of non-toxic mushrooms, _Albatrellus confluens_ is also a very good source of antioxidants. Chief among them is grifolin, which has also demonstrated many beneficial effects when consumed as part of a healthy diet. This ingredient is typically part of a blend with other ingredients such as glycols or other carriers. Recommended usage levels of _Albatrellus confluens_ (mushroom) extract in such blends are 1–3%.
