Cell Deficiency and the Benefit of the Mushroom

Presented by Patricia Martorana

About the webinar:
Traditions of healing are now redefined and mushrooms are making an impact on the aesthetic industry. They have the ability to normalize skin's pH and remove inflammation. Mushroom stem cells act like super sponges that eliminate toxins from the skin, making them ideal to combat environmental stress. They contain power-house antioxidant that enhances cellular recovery from environmental surroundings.

At the conclusion of this presentation the skin care specialist will be able to:
1) Analyze and assess free radical damage and cell deficiency.
2) Recognize the use of medicinal mushrooms in ancient traditions.
3) List the five key mushrooms, their functions.
4) Distinguish how stem cell technology can be applied in treatments to replenish healthy skin cells.
