SNAIL SLIME USE FOR SKIN
Have you ever touched the snail secretion—which is usually called snail slime? Snail slime is kind of mucus which is produced not only by snail but also by other kind of gastropods. Externally, one kind of mucus is produced by the foot of the gastropod and is usually used for crawling on. The foot mucus of a gastropod has some of the qualities of a glue and some of the qualities of a lubricant, allowing land snails to crawl up vertical surfaces without falling off. The color is transparent and it feels sticky if touched. Some people find it is unsavory to touch it, moreover having it on their body, right? But surprisingly it is found very useful for skin and many well-known cosmetic brands have included snail slime as the main ingredient of their products.

Snail slime found to be having rich proteins of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants. Of course, with those famous two components in beauty-talks, everyone knows that both have the role to prevent premature skin aging. It claims to be stimulating the formation of collagen, elastin and dermal components which also can do a great job to prevent the photoaging on skin. No wonder those proteins can protect gastropod’s soft and sensitive tissues from damage and bacteria as they slither everywhere.
But is it all of the snail slimes are the same? No, indeed! Snail slime also has some diversities in their appearance and quality. It is according to the environmental conditions of the place that they had been living in, the seasons and the food sources used by the snails.
