The Koreans know what’s up with their wonder products made from Snail Slime. Yes you heard that right! Snail slime or Snail Mucin has amazing properties that nourish, repair and protect the skin!
The benefits of Snail Slime was discovered when Snail farmers from Chile discovered that their hands were incredibly softer and smoother due to constant handling and harvesting of snails for the market.
So how does it work?
Snails have very soft flesh which can easily get injured while travelling rocky and sharp surfaces which is why they produce snail slime which contains skin-loving stuff like Hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, antimicrobial and copper peptides, and proteoglycans which help the skin repair and renew itself.
Snail slime is not only good for older skin types but is also good for sun-damaged, sensitive, scarred and acne-prone skin as well since it helps nourish, repair and protect the skin from further damage. Its antimicrobial properties is also useful for acne prone skin types.
