Snail: What makes it a skincare superstar?
by Bettina Miski on Jun 14, 2023
Yes, you read it right! Snails slowly made their way onto the beauty stores’ shelves and earned themselves the title of a skincare superstar. Snail mucin, often referred to as snail secretion filtrate, has been a long-time element of K-beauty and has been loved for its healing properties in many ancient cultures. But thanks to some well-deserved trending moments on social media, snail mucin started gaining worldwide attention in recent years. Looking for the secret of an overall youthful glow from within? Snails might have your answer. And here’s why.
Snail mucin is exactly what it sounds like, the substance produced by snails that protects their delicate bodies from the environment, dryness, and other damage. It is a highly water-based substance that naturally has several ingredients you’ll find popular in skincare.
First and foremost, snail mucin is naturally packed with hyaluronic acid. Everyone’s go-to solution for hydration and plump skin. Snail mucin provides a great hydration boost, locking moisture into your skin. Leaving you with a radiant, dewy complexion. While strengthening the skin barrier and improving the overall elasticity of your skin.
But that's not all! Snail mucin also contains a bunch of nutrients like glycolic acid, proteins, enzymes, and peptides, all working together to rejuvenate and repair your skin. These elements work together to promote collagen production and cell regeneration and will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This makes snail mucin a great tool for well-aging by preventing signs of premature aging.
The mucin’s antibacterial factors also make it a holy-grail item for those with acne-prone skin. It will not only help to soothe the inflammation, but thanks to the repairing benefits of its peptides, snail mucin will also help fade the scars and hyperpigmentation. Resulting in a clearer complex and smoother skin texture.
Incorporating this slimy superstar into your skincare routine can do wonders for all skin types. And luckily all this goodness is packed within a variety of accessible skincare products.
