Djon Djon

Djon Djon, often referred to as Haiti's black truffle, is a rare and highly coveted mushroom exclusive to Haiti known for its strength-boosting qualities in food. Djon Djon contains a high concentration of Beta Glucan, a molecule with superior hydrating, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that topically calms and soothes irritated skin while retaining moisture. Its plumping effect also helps in smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

FURCY Botanik’s proprietary bio-fermented Djon Djon derivative Hydramax-DF1™ serves as the foundation of our FURCY Botanik collection and makes it ideal for sensitive skins. Hydramax-DF1 helps achieve a healthy, vibrant and youthful skin with more radiant complexion.

Djon Djon, this unassuming mushroom, only appears during the rainy season, growing randomly, and mainly in hidden nooks of dead wood scattered across the rugged terrain in the central part of the country. It is carefully handpicked by foragers within a narrow 5-hour lifespan and then left out to dry in the sun. Djon Djon is also held in high regard by food connoisseurs around the world, a delicacy that has its own distinct flavor, aroma and color.

Guava Leaves

In in-vitro studies, our proprietary bio-fermented Guava leaves compound Shieldmax-GF1™ exhibits outstanding antioxidant properties compared to Vitamin C. It helps protect the skin against free radicals caused by environmental factors such as sun and pollution. It significantly reduces the reactive oxygen species (ROS) and therefore is effective in preventing DNA damage and oxidative stress. It considerably restores and increases Collagen-1 and Hyaluronic Acid production and level after UV exposure. Our guava leaves are handpicked in the village of Furcy.

Together our proprietary Djon Djon and Guava ferments show excellent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and DNA repair capabilities; they help enhance the skin barrier functions, with superior photoprotective, anti-ageing and anti-pigmentary capabilities.
