Snail Slime: Secret for Beautiful Skin


Snail slime is now being claimed as the new miracle face-fixer. It’s being primarily marketed as an acne solution and also believed to reduce pigmentation and scarring, as well as beat wrinkles.

Face creams containing snail slime have been popular in Korea and Africa for a few years, and now beauty products with snail slime is hitting the United States.

The Ancient Greeks apparently recognised its potential as a beauty product, with Hippocrates reportedly recommending crushed snails to relieve inflamed skin.

The beauty potential of snail slime was also rediscovered by Chilean snail farmers when it was noticed that their skin healed quickly, with no scars, when they handled snails for the French food market.

Snail slime – or, technically, Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates – is a complex mix of proteins, glycolic acids and elastin that nature developed as a way to protect snail skin from damage of rocks, twigs, and other rough surfaces; infection, and UV rays.

Dermatologist Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, M.D. told Fashionista: ‘The extract is renowned for its regenerative properties, and facilitates the restoration of damaged tissue and replenishes moisture in skin. It is also effective in treating acne and scarring.’

However some dermatologists are still unsure.

Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, the co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, said: ‘There is some speculation that the mucin in these slime creams can be anti-inflammatory and calming; however, there are no respected scientific studies to prove that it actually works. For now, I remain skeptical.’
