Already the Father of Medicine – Hippocrates – described the healing properties of the snail mucus. For centuries it has been used as a natural antibiotic against skin infections and effective help for burn wounds. The modern cosmetic science discovered snail mucin again because of its exceptional composition.
Snail mucus provides seven natural key benefactors to promote healthy, beautiful skin: allantoin, collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin E and protein.
In addition, it contains antimicrobial peptides, copper, tin and iron. These elements accelerate recovery properties, eliminate dead cells and stimulate the production of antimicrobial agents, that combat infections and enhance structure and texture of the skin. Unlike many plants snail mucin does not contain any allergens, which makes it extremely suitable for hyper sensitive skintypes, including baby and children care.
It is also thought to be an effective treatment against acne and dark aging spots.
