The powers of Snail Mucin for your skincare routine

By: Carolina Malis

Some skincare ingredients have simply earned a place in the Holy Grail category, and snail mucin has been one of them for decades.

In a nutshell, snail mucin - or snail slime - is a naturally created ingredient used by snails as a tool to protect themselves. This potent multitasker has many talents, from deeply moisturizing your skin to boosting collagen production, and helping with scars. Its formulation features moisturizing agents that are great at repairing and boosting your natural skin barrier, keeping environmental threats and irritants out while simultaneously locking moisture in.

This powerful ingredient also has the power to repair and protect your skin from getting harmed thanks to the growth factors in it, which work by triggering the growth of new skin cells and new collagen, a.k.a adding it to your skincare routine will translate into fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin. 

But that’s not it! Snail mucin can soothe your skin thanks to the Allantoin in it, is loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients like zinc and manganese, and it’s great at fighting free radicals thanks to powerful antioxidants in its formulation, like Vitamin A and Vitamin E.
