The Unexpected Ingredient Women Are Putting On Their Skin To Take 10 Years Off Their Face: Snails

November 17, 2019 by Robyn Turk

We all know that collagen is the path to younger-seeming skin because it is the protein that builds up most of our skin and hair. Our bodies’ own collagen production slows down as we age, which is why using skincare products or supplements made with collagen helps us to maintain a youthful appearance.

So if we told you that we found a natural ingredient that is rich in collagen, elastin and glycolic acid to hydrate and rejuvenate skin, you’d want to try it right away, right? What if we told you that ingredient was snail mucin?

Why Snail Gel Is An Amazing Anti-Aging Ingredient

Also referred to as snail gel, farmers discovered the healthy aging benefits of snail mucin after noticing impressively soft hands after a day of work. Natural skincare brand Dr.Organic took a cue from these farmers just launched their Snail Gel line – a collection of anti-aging products made from mucin humanely sourced from snails in natural habitats in France.

“This is such a great natural anti-aging product. I have been using it for the last 3 years and I regularly get compliments on my skin. A dime size amount (or less) is enough to cover your entire face and part of your neck. It's moisturizing without being sticky or leaving a residue, and my skin feels really soft and smooth after using it. You will definitely notice a big difference after using this product. I also recommend their snail gel eye treatment.” - Pamela

Key Benefits

- Hydrates and revitalizes skin for a younger-seeming appearance

- Visibly firms skin, evens out tone and softens texture

Promising Review

“Once you get past the ick factor of snail mucus, this turns out to be an effective night cream. It has a whipped texture that is absorbed quickly. It contains collagen and elastin which help skin to look plump and firm. The glycolic acid will work to improve dark marks and blemishes. The formula is free of most of the ingredients that clean beauty brands avoid. There is a light citrusy scent that I enjoy. Will this night cream banish wrinkles? Probably not. It will, however, leave your skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated. That goes a long way to making skin appear youthful.” - Antoinette
