MICO-RT is our new dermatological body serum of Reishi and Cordyceps extracts with argan oil, sacha inchi oil and aloe vera, indicated for the care, prevention and early management of skin alterations associated with skin toxicity induced by radiotherapeutic treatments.
At Hifas da Terra we are committed to a new way of understanding health that places the patient at the center of attention, understanding their specific needs and applying knowledge of the natural world, to develop a range of specific cosmeceuticals aimed at preventing and controlling the lesions caused in the skin by oncological treatments, especially some types of chemotherapy and the new anti-diana drugs, which helps to favor therapeutic compliance.
The efficacy of this novel organic cream is based on the synergy of its active ingredients, extracts of medicinal mushrooms Ganoderma lucidum and Cordyceps sinensis on a base of argan oil (Arginia spinosa) and sacha inchi oil (Plukenetia volubilis), sodium hyaluronate and vitamins that modulate cellular activity, minimize skin oxidation and help relieve redness, dryness, desquamation and hyperpigmentation, thus promoting healing and protecting against radiation.
Mico-RT is formulated with extracts of two medicinal mushrooms of high therapeutic interest: Ganoderma lucidum and Cordyceps sinensis. For their extraction, we apply the latest technologies, which implies the regular fractionation of their bioactive compounds.
Ganoderma lucidum and Cordyceps sinensis extracts are rich in a multitude of bioactive compounds including β-glucans, natural antioxidants, B vitamins, essential amino acids, trace elements and minerals (Fe, Se, Zn).
Hyphae da Terra has developed Mico-RT, a formulation that has demonstrated antioxidant capacity of the two mushroom extracts present: 8.04± 0.10 g Trolox*/100 g equivalent -Ganoderma lucidum- and 3.47±0.16 g Trolox*/100 g equivalent -Cordyceps sinensis-.
*Standard used in the tests to determine antioxidant capacity.
In experiments carried out at Hifas da Terra, the fungal extracts included in Mico-RT have shown antibacterial capacity against several strains of clinical interest. Recent studies have also shown the healing capacity of these extracts.
Directions for use
Cleanse the skin thoroughly with Mico-Soap ONCO (Reishi, calendula &amp lemon). Apply directly with water or with the help of a cotton pad with special emphasis on the affected area. Dry gently.
Apply MICO-RT in sufficient quantity with a gentle massage on the affected areas. It is possible to repeat applications whenever necessary, even several times a day.

Extracts of Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) and Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) are of particular interest for the prevention and treatment of skin against external aggressions thanks to their anti-inflammatory, healing and antioxidant power.
Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis): the extract of this fungus promotes oxygenation and increased intracellular energy. It has also demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity and protection against radiation. It also reduces signs of fatigue, soothes itching and itching and prevents desquamation, thus allowing skin tone to be restored.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) and Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) act at the cellular level. In addition, it has demonstrated anti-peroxidative and anti-inflammatory activity, protecting proteins from oxidation. The skin retains its elasticity and firmness, preventing dryness and flaking.
Coco-caprylate/caprate: has emollient properties that help to soften, smooth and lubricate the skin.
Argan oil: acts as a vehicle to the cellular interior facilitating the correct absorption of the active ingredients of the mushroom extracts. In turn, it regenerates, nourishes, moisturizes and protects the skin.
Sacha inchi oil: it is rich in unsaturated fatty acids (omega 3 and 6), vitamins A and E, amino acids and proteins. It has antioxidant, nourishing and moisturizing properties. It is indicated for the treatment of sensitive, dehydrated, inflamed and irritated skin.
Vitamin E (tocopherol): has antioxidant properties that help eliminate free radicals that damage cell structure. Contributes to the skins healing process by accelerating skin regeneration.
