I haven’t tried a skincare product with snail mucin in a long time but I note that this is quite a popular key ingredient in a lot of Korean skincare. I wonder what snails they use, the garden variety or more upmarket snails? Anyway, I have been trying out Cellnique Intensive Hydro Repair Elixir which has snail mucin and hyaluronic acid. It’s not slimy as one would imagine a product with snail mucin to be.
It’s very lightweight and fluid, absorbs into skin very quickly and boosts my skin’s moisture level. It’s a water based serum so I think I would be right to say it’d be ideal for oily skins too. Why snail slime though? It does sound rather gross but consider that snail slime is a complex mixture of proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, glycoprotein enzymes, hyaluronic acid, copper peptides, antimicrobial peptides and trace elements including copper, zinc and iron.
This is the full ingredients list:-
Purified Water (Aqua), Snail Secretion Filtrate, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Butylene Glycol, Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba) Extract, Hydrolyzed Silk, Rice (Oryza sativa) Bran Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Kinetin, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-3, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Benzisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone
