    Would You Put Snail Slime On Your Skin?

    Snail Slime Anti-Aging Products

    There is an endless option of anti-aging skincare products to choose from, with one of the hottest new trends being snail slime. Yep, that’s right snail slime beauty creams!

    It’s Not Really A New Trend

    Using snail slime for external beauty and healing dates back to ancient Greece with Hippocrates prescribing a homemade concoction to treat inflammation.

    Slime Is Not The Only Ingredient

    Slime may also be referred to as filtrate or mucus on the label of your beauty creams, but slime is just one of many anti-aging ingredients.

    You Might Already Be Using Slime

    Some products proudly boast snail or escargot in their name, while others simply list it as one of their many ingredients. It is most commonly found in facial serums and moisturizing creams, face mask sheets, bar soap, and anti-aging body lotion. It’s a very popular in Korean skincare and beauty products.

    But Why Slime?

    For starters, slime is between 92 to 98 percent water. The remaining composition consists of naturally occurring compounds:

    • UV protection
    • Fade scars, stretch marks, and age spots
    • Reduce inflammation
    • Contain and stimulate collagen and elastin
    • Heal and soothe acne, rosacea, and minor skin irritations
    • Hyaluronic acid

    And don’t worry, the snails used for cosmetics are raised in controlled environments such as indoor snail farms—they aren’t just randomly collected from the forest.
