Snail Secretion Filtrate (Snail Mucin)
Snail secretion filtrate—also known as snail mucin—is a super ingredient that works in a variety of ways to boost your skin. K-beauty pioneered the idea of taking this ingredient, a super healing extract from the snail’s natural secretion, and implementing it into skin care as a prime skin healer. The ingredient is a source of proteins, copper peptides, antimicrobial peptides, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid.
Benefits: It helps to firm and tighten the skin, increase collagen production, fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation, and it also works to moisturize the skin. It also has microbial properties, which help to fight against any acne-causing bacterias.
Skin Types: If you’re suffering from acne or acne scarring, this is the ingredient to be on the lookout for!
