Are Snail Creams Effective?

Mizon snail extract

The current trend in the cosmetics industry is to go back to the nature, back to the basics. And that means using natural and clean ingredients. Less is more and it’s also true for your skincare routine.

“There is anecdotal evidence that proteins in snail slime have anti-aging benefits, and clinical trials have looked at that, as well as reversal of sun damage, and shown improvement. Snail slime is not going to help deep folds, but it will improve skin texture and quality.’’ The actual science behind these products is still somewhat inconclusive.”

Lab cell cultures had positive findings, and a study published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment showed an improvement in burn patients who used snail mucin, but there have been no serious controlled clinical trials or long-term studies, so doctors are divided.

There’s a growing interest in snail filtrate, which contains allantoin, proteins to improve smoothness, acids, and enzymatic properties, but the active components can differ depending upon the source. Snails come in many varieties: Products boast gastropods that hail from Brittany, regions of Africa, and Korea’s Green Zone.

So if you are struggling to find a cream that works for you, I recommend to try a cream that consists snail slime. It might sound weird to you, but the benefits are definitely there. Once I put this cream on my face there is no strange feeling, it’s not sticky or greasy like some other creams out there. The cream absorbs nicely and leaves a silky smooth feeling on your skin. I can almost feel my skin being nourished and I can go about my day knowing I have fed my skin some great natural ingredients.
