Our team has recently been thinking that it might be of use to our customers if we blog about ingredients that compose k-beauty products. We expect that our blogs will help you to gain valuable knowledge about the ingredients, which will enhance your understanding of skincare in general.
Today we are going to talk about the white truffle ingredient in skincare products. You might have noticed that in the past few years this ingredient has gained a vast popularity among skincare producers. Why? We will explain in this blog post ;)
First, let’s have a look at history: why are truffles so expensive in the first place?
White truffle is mostly found in Piedmont region on the North of Italy. In Italian, white truffle is called ‘trifola d'Alba Madonna’ (from this name you might recognize the name of one of the brands we added to our range recently) These truffles are also called ‘diamonds in the ground’. The white kind is the rarest in the world, and costs a fortune to buy if sold in a primary condition. It is almost impossible to cultivate white truffles deliberately, as opposed to black truffles, which makes them even more precious. Hunters for white truffles spend a long time looking for the treasure with the help of dogs or pigs that are trained to sniff them out.
What makes white truffle so great for the skin ?
White truffle serves as an anti-inflammatory and anti-aging agent in skincare products. This ingredient contains a special enzyme called “Superoxide Dismutase” which helps to repair damaged skin, while preventing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles at the same time. This is why this ingredient is considered a ‘super food’ for skin. It is also filled with numerous minerals and vitamins. For instance, it is rich with Vitamin C, which makes white truffle a powerful brightening ingredient. It also contains Vitamin B12, which is useful to help dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
White truffle skincare helps your skin to regain a healthier complexion. Vitamin B6 brightens and aids skin, repairing dry, itchy, and irritated patches. The essential fatty acids stimulate deep cell repairation which will help your skin to further rebuild. These are just some of the reasons white truffle can be found in the best anti-aging products.
