Aging At A Snail's Pace....

By Bridget Hudzik, Beauty Guru

No need to worry about the shell getting in your way with these snail slime infused products.
Snail extract (Helix Aspersa Muller) is said to have amazing power to regerate, heal and protect skin because it contains glycolic acid, collagen, elastin, allantoine, and other natural antibiotics.
  • Glycolic Acid aids in exfoliation and removal of dead cells.
  • Collagen and Elastin prevent again and help to maintain skin's elasticity.
  • Allantoine has amazing regeneration properties.
  • Natural Antibiotics help to fight existing bacteria, such as that brought on by acne.
While snail slime creams have been popular in Africa, Greece, and Korea for years, there are only a few that have brought them stateside, and we have them right here for you.

Labcconte Laboratories Premium Nourishing Snail Cream for Ladies is a newly enhanced pure snail product including EGF, Adenosine and Vitamine E that is an approved anti-aging product with hyaluronic acid. Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) has an important role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation by binding to its receptor EGFR. EGF stimulates the sub-dermal production of Collagen and Elastin. Hyaluronic Acid helps to diminish deep wrinkles and provides moisture to the skin. Adenosine stimulates DNA synthesis and increases protein synthesis. Results show skin with less wrinkles, and hydrated complexions. With 85% snail extract, it has one of the highest concentrations on the market. It is also known as a 'miracle cream' for sensitive and troubled skin - read the reviews for proof!

 Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Sleeping Mask contains snail for cell renewing benefits for bright and healthy skin. The formula contains botanical stem cells to supply energy to your cells, and snail slime extract to provide vitality to the skin. This line of products does not contain preservatives. Snail slime contains natural healing and regenerative power when applied to recover from skin damage while strengthening the skin barrier in a natural way. Snail slime is a very precious ingredient since the amount of snail slime secreted from a snail for 6 hours is only 1g, and it can only be extracted from healthy snails born within 5-6 months.
