As a skin care ingredient, Tremella is a humectant and skin conditioning agent with extraordinary moisture retaining properties; it is able to both directly moisturize skin and draw moisture in from the surrounding environment. In addition, research shows that Tremella works effectively as a topical antioxidant and contains high levels of vitamin D important for cellular metabolism.
