Snail mucin contains many beneficial ingredients (such as glycolic acid, glycoprotein enzymes and copper peptides).
These ingredients make snail mucin excellent at repairing skin damage, evening skin tone, fading hyperpigmentation (including acne scars), as well as firming and tightening the skin, and boosting collagen and elastin production. Snail mucin is also great for hydrating the skin as it contains hyaluronic acid (a humectant ingredient that pulls water into the outer layers of the skin).
As if that wasn’t enough, snail mucin also has antimicrobial properties, which makes it great for fighting off acne-causing bacteria.
Snail Mucin Is Good For Treating Acne
Snail mucin is a great ingredient to incorporate into your skincare routine if you suffer from acne breakouts. Snail mucin naturally has antimicrobial properties, which helps to keep acne-causing bacteria at bay. However, the glycolic acid in snail mucin also helps to prevent breakouts by exfoliating the skin (and thereby removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores).
Snail mucin can also help to repaire the skin’s moisture barrier – which in turn will minimise breakouts. This is due to the ingredient hyaluronic acid, which as I explained above, is a humectant, which means it attracts water molecules to your outer skin layer, keeping your skin hydrated. This makes sense, as snails require a lot of moisture to stop them from drying out.
Snail Mucin Is Good For Fading Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
Snail mucin has another great property- it is great at fading hyperpigmentation. Snail mucin is great for healing acne scars (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), reducing redness and at evening your general skin tone, it doesn’t appear to be very effective at fading other types of hyperpigmentation (such as sunspots or melasma).
Anti-Wrinkle Benefits of Snail Mucin
Clinical studies have shown that snail mucin does have anti-aging properties.
This is because the hyaluronic acid present in snail mucin works to keep your skin super hydrated and plump – which in turn reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The hyaluronic acid in snail mucin also increases collagen and elastin production in the outer layers of your skin, which makes the skin look firmer and more youthful.
As the hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid are short term only, this is why the anti-aging and skin-hydrating benefits of snail mucin appear to be short term only. People who use snail mucin regularly, do notice their skin not looking as hydrated and firm only days after not including it in their routine.
