Extreme weather conditions, as a result of climate change, is wreaking havoc on our scalp, an extension of our skin; our body’s largest organ. During winters, the decreasing moisture in the air makes it difficult for our scalp to stay moisturised. During dry summers, the increasing heat causes more moisture to escape our scalp barrier and we’re yet again left with a dry scalp. Don’t worry, mushrooms help in both cases and in this blog we explore how.

There isn't mush room for dryness with mushrooms

Mushrooms are a hidden gem in the skincare industry. This sustainable fungi carries with it an immense potential to repair damage caused by environmental stressors.

More specifically, King Trumpet mushrooms that we’ve sourced locally from Shroomery, a farm in Delhi, are known for being rich in antioxidants, vitamin b6 and niacin. These compounds together help mushrooms repair a scalp with a weak barrier that finds it difficult to hold in moisture. We end up with a weak scalp barrier in the first place due to free radicals and a compound called hyaluronidase that destroys the amazing vitality-boosting chemicals collagen and hyaluronic acid that are naturally present on our scalp. With loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid, our scalp becomes weaker and a weaker scalp is unable to keep itself moisturised and thus becomes even weaker. It’s a vicious cycle.

Thankfully, mushrooms have anti-hyaluronidase properties that stop hyaluronidase from attacking collagen and hyaluronic acid present on our scalp. Isn’t that simply magical?
