You have heard about snail cream on the news, on fashion blogs in magazines and on the grape vine, but what is snail cream and what does it do? Lets be clear from the start, Snail Cream is a beauty cream or moisturizer that contains a snail based extract. In most cases this would be in the form of Phyto-Mucin, a compound derived from the mucus generated by snail slime. Before you go screaming at the thought, nobody expects you to put snail slime on your face. Most snail based beauty products will resemble any other beauty product and merely contain the active ingredients derived from snails to deliver the many benefits snail slime can give.
How was Snail Slime Discovered?
Snail Slime has been used by the ancient Greeks to modern day plastic surgeons charging up to $600 per treatment, so this is not a new idea. In fact, our ancestors used Snail Slime to help heal wounds realising the magical properties of snail slime early on. Hippocrates, a famous physician used crushed snail shell with milk to treat inflammation. In more modern times, Chilean farmers producing Escargot for French cuisine noticed how smooth their skin became when handling the snails, and thus the potential of snail slime was discovered.
So you can be sure the practice is safe and tested over hundreds of years. Today, we can benefit from snail slime without the yucky sticky issue of dealing with snail slime by delivering the active compounds in a light cream.
How is Snail Cream Made?
Snail Cream is produced by collecting the slime generated by snails, in the case of our skin cream, the 'Dioscorea Japonica' species of snail. Farms rear large volumes of snails and collect the slime naturally left by the snails. In the natural environment, when snails become agitated or travel, they produce mucus which contains the organic compounds we require to create a cream. This mucus is then harvested, filtered & pasteurized to purify and the active ingredients extracted then blended with other ingredients to create a cream or gel, just like any other beauty product.
What is in Snail Cream?
Our Snail Cream contains a rare blend of ingredients exclusive to our range. Other creams may differ by what it contains to the effects they produce.
There are a number of active ingredients in snail slime, after all, snails need to protect themselves from bacteria on the ground, UV rays, heat and damage to their skin, and their mucus is designed to protect them from all these dangers, we can too.

The mucus also contains other beneficial compounds from anti-microbials to fight infection to hyaluronic / glycolic acids and copper peptides to rejuvenate and heal skin.
