  • Summary:
    A Singapore institute has developed a novel range of natural, mushroom-based cosmetic products, featuring a proprietary series of steps developed for mushroom culture, extraction and cosmetic formulation.

    The institute seeks licensing partnerships with MNEs/SMEs of all sizes.
  • Description:
    Since ancient times, mushrooms have been widely used as natural food and health supplements. Mushrooms carry substantial quantities of proteins, polysaccharides, bioactive compounds and minerals and furthermore, have health-promoting anti-tumour, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic and immunomodulation properties.

    Researchers at this Singapore institute have identified a few novel mushrooms with a high content of anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and skin-lightening compounds, which have been utilised as natural, bioactive ingredients for skincare. Comprising a series of proprietary steps to prepare the mushroom culture, extracts and also in the formulation, a range of novel mushroom-based cosmetic products has been developed with benefits for the consumers.

    The products are applicable to industries such as skin care, beauty and cosmetics, in hospitals as well as other health-promoting industries.

    The institute is keen to partner MNEs or SMEs of all sizes via a licensing agreement where the technology can be licensed to the partner for further development to new products for introduction to the market.
