Gladback™ is a purified and standardized fraction of Poria cocos for mature and/or menopause skins. It is a multi-functional active ingredient which increases skin thickness, radiance and microcirculation, and it also reduces the appearance of wrinkles typical of aging.

Poria cocos is a well-known fungus in Asian traditional medicine where it is used as a purifying, antioxidant and softening agent.  In GladbackTM, the part used st the sclerocia (mycelium), which is rich in polysacchrides (pachyman) and triterpenes.

Target Dermal Structures of GladbackTM

  • Hyaluronic acid: essential glycosaminoglycan of the dermal and epidermal extracellular matrix, which acts directly on tissue cohesion and repair.
  • CD44: trans-membrane glycoprotein which acts as the main receptor of hyaluronic acid and maintains its homeostasis. The interaction between the hyaluronic acid and this receptor facilitates cellular differentiation and strengthens tissue union.
    • During aging and menopause the expression of the CD44 receptor and hyaluronic acid diminishes, leading to a reduced skin thickness, firmness and cell renewal.
    • Gladback™ increases the expression of this receptor, improving the hyaluronic acid binding
      in the epidermis and dermis.
  • Collagen IV: maintains the skin mechanical stability as it is a key element of the dermal-epidermal junction.
    • Age diminishes collagen and menopause accentuates even more this loss.
      Gladback™ boosts the expression of collagen IV and strengthens skin stability.
  • SPRR: family of small proteins rich in prolin, located in the dense envelope of the corneocytes (epidermis).
    • Due to aging and menopause these proteins become over expressed, and this causes important skin imbalances.
    • Gladback™ reduces the expression of SPRR and improves the appearance of mature skin.

Gladback™ rolls back the effects of aging in skin thickness, microcirculation, radiance and firmness. The result is a younger and more radiant skin.

Hey Jen, love the new look! However, my "Wish List" is growing! I recommend Lotioncrafter without reservation -- quick delivery, good service, excellent products -- a supplier I trust to deliver the highest quality.

Items all arrived on time and very well packaged. It looks like Lotioncrafter took the time to wrap and label each item carefully, legibly and to protect from moisture and light. They even returned part of my shipping cost to just cover the actual incurred shipping cost. Nice and honest seller. Will definitely return to shop for some more stuff. Thank you!

Thank you for helping my business grow with quality organic products and outstanding peptides. The results are amazing! Thank you Jen for the pipettes included in this order- it's these small things that make purchasing even more amazing! I'm looking forward to another order again soon!
Kate, (

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your cocoa butter. It's less expensive than my other suppliers (when they can get it at all), and I love the way it's so convenient to measure out- no more cutting and getting it all over the place! I will certainly order from you from now on. Thank you!
Amy, (Garden Goddess Bodycare)

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you
