Before we let ourselves get swept up by the craze, what exactly is Snail Mucin? Snail Mucin is the slime snails excrete to protect their delicate bodies from rough surfaces that can damage it. Although the thought of anything coming from a snail coming anywhere near your face may seem gross, the practice is backed with reliable dermatological research. Snail Mucin has been found to have anti-aging properties due to its ability to encourage the production of collagen and elastin. It has also been proven to aid the healing process of damaged skin by encouraging cell regeneration, prevent acne, and provide deep moisture. If you’re worried about the product feeling slimy and icky on your skin, rest assured that products containing Snail Mucin feels exactly like any other moisturizer, serum, or facemask that you’ve already used; unless, of course, you prefer the snail facial.
