Snail slime < 88%

INCI: Snail exudate filtrate

The snail (Helix aspersa) is a terrestrial gastropod mollusk with spiral shell, long body and tentacles on the head. It is edible and when you move it secretes a slime or slime that facilitates its movement. This silt also helps, when it solidifies, to hold the snail in a support, usually vegetal, isolating it, at the same time, from a dry or unfavorable environment.

The use of snails and mucus has a long tradition in folk medicine that dates back to very ancient times. Currently, a series of research is being carried out on its active components and its use in medicine, dermatology, dermopharmacy and cosmetics.

The most active substances of snail slime are the following:

• Proteins, very similar to the composition of the human dermis.

• Group B of vitamins.

• Allantoin, contains a significant proportion. Allantoin acts as a remarkable cell proliferator and regenerator of skin tissue.

• Alpha-hydroxy acids, including glycolic, citric, malic and lactic acids. The most external and damaged skin layers are eliminated.

• Minerals and trace elements, especially calcium salts that act as an essential factor to harden the opening of the shell, when the snails enter latency periods.

• Mucopolysaccharides, which give the typical lubricant and slippery touch to mucus. They have a great moisturizing power.

• Antiproteases control the action of cutaneous proteases, enzymes that cause the biochemical degradation of collagen and elastin, limiting their activity to what is strictly necessary.

It must be incorporated at temperatures that do not exceed 45ºC.
