Slime, slow, gooey - words synonymous with snails. However, despite being slow, slimey and gooey, these creatures have an amazing ability.
Snails produce mucin when they crawl to protect their soft bodies from rough surfaces. And it’s been discovered that their mucin can benefit our skin too! Traditionally, snail mucin has been known to treat burns, gastrointestinal ulcers and soothe coughs. Rest assured, we won’t be ingesting it.
Snail mucin works wonderfully when used on our skin because it contains proteins, glycolic acids and elastin to protect their soft bodies from damage and infection. Here are some of the benefits:
- Repairs damaged skin. Restores, protects and strengthens your skin.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Regenerate skin cells.
- Firm and increase skin’s elasticity.
Snail mucin works the same way for our skin too. It helps to regenerate our skin and protect it from damage.
