Discover the power of truffles beyond culinary
The sought after truffle is known worldwide as a culinary delicacy, but many don’t know that it was considered a product of witchcraft. Skin&Co Roma Founder Gabriel Balestra, explained that perhaps this was because it was often harvested during a full moon. Balestra is a third-generation member of a family widely known for its cultivation of the high-priced fungus. The plot of land his grandfather purchased in Montecastrilli (a town in Umbria) from the Italian government more than one hundred years ago, is still used for farming truffles today. Many of which are sold worldwide by the food division of the now global business, Sabatino & Co. (A name you might recognize from Oprah’s Favorite Things list)
Balestra, however, decided to follow in the footsteps of his grandmother, who instead of consuming the truffle, used it in conjunction with other natural extracts to create her own botanical oils. He made it his mission to bring his grandmother’s beloved formulas back to their former glory.
After years of research with universities in both Italy and England, he found out that the extract his nonna used was from no ordinary truffle—it was obtained from a variety that grew under specific conditions and could only be harvested on the night of the thirteenth full moon, a phenomenon that occurs once every three years. The enzyme extracted from this truffle, known as superoxide dismutase, is a powerful antioxidant that reduces free radical damage to skin.
