Breathe New Life Into Tired Skin With Sulwhasoo’s Timetreasure Honorstige Line
Sulwhasoo's Timetreasure Honorstige line consists of two transformative must haves - the serum and cream. Both are infused with resishi mushroom extract and the brand's propietary Active Ginseng Cell technology, which provide anti ageing benefits to the skin.

We’re only at the start of a new year, but work stressors and COVID-related anxiety have a way of manifesting themselves on our complexion. One way to keep the signs of ageing at bay is by adding Sulwhasoo’s Timetreasure Honorstige products to your self-care routine.

The luxury Korean beauty’s most prestigious line comprises just two concoctions: The Timetreasure Honorstige Serum and Timetreasure Honorstige Cream. Both formulas are infused with Korean red pine extract – the brand’s proprietary Active Ginseng Cell technology – and the star of the show, reishi mushroom extract.

Ganoderma lucidum, also known as reishi mushrooms, are used in the brand’s premium Timetreasure Honorstige line. Specimens are carefully selected to deliver optimum results.

Reishi mushroom has been used for centuries in traditional Eastern medicine, and is prized for its purported ability to improve health, boost the immune system and fight age-related ailments, thanks to its health enhancing compounds. For instance, the triterpene acid found in the mushroom has been scientifically proven to contain antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and collagen-boosting properties.

Not only do these help protect the skin against environmental aggressors such as pollution and radiation, they also aid in repairing damage, thus preserving the skin’s youthfulness. Sulwhasoo has also taken a step further in ensuring that the brand only selects top-grade reishi mushrooms, using Amorepacific’s high-tech green technology to optimally and responsibly extract the triterpene acid from the specimens.

Supporting the benefits of the reishi mushroom extract is the brand’s Active Ginseng Cell technology, which is backed by over 50 years of studies. The ginseng-derived compound has been found to improve the skin’s resilience and support collagen production, thus leaving it strong and healthy.

Another key ingredient in the formula is red pine extract. Compounds such as dehydroabietic acid (DAA) and the unique Red Pine Protective Coat (RPPC) that are found in the extract work to halt the ageing process, leaving your skin smoother and more radiant after being used over a period of time. Also found in the extract is a plant bio-synthesiser called S-Phytoalexin, which has protective and regenerative properties.

Combined, this trifecta of powerful botanical extracts effectively combats the effects of stress and ageing, leaving your complexion youthful, healthy and glowing. Furthermore, the formulas are perfumed with a blend of orange, lemon and eucalyptus essential oils to center your mind and calm frazzled nerves, transforming your skincare routine into an indulgent experience.
