Demetra: The Intersection of Sustainability and Snail-Based Cosmetics

Amidst the gentle sea breeze of the Adriatic Riviera and the stunning landscape of the hills of Rimini, Demetra Snail Farm was born—a brand that has found the perfect balance between nature and cosmetics.

Being an organic agricultural company, Demetra is committed to sustainability and circularity of raw materials, with a strong respect for nature and local territories. The brand has created an ideal habitat for the valuable Helix Aspersa Muller snails, from which a precious snail mucus is extracted as the foundation of their cosmetic products.

Focusing on Helix Aspersa Muller allows Demetra to go from soil to finished cosmetic product with minimal environmental impact, meeting high sustainability criteria. The brand's ethos stems from an unconditional love for nature and a meticulously researched farming method.


Demetra's snail mucus is only manually extracted, ensuring high purity and environmental conservation. This unique ingredient has numerous functional properties such as hydration, soothing, and revitalization, credited to allantoin; exfoliating action, credited to glycolic acid; and presence of vitamins, minerals, and lactic acid.


Demetra offers a specialized range of facial skin-care products, leveraging the incredible potential of snail mucus. From creams and eye contours to serums, each product is made with the highest possible concentration of pure snail mucus, enhanced with a mix of substances to boost its natural cosmetic action.


Demetra follows a clear ethical path: all cosmetic products are natural, dermatologically and microbiologically tested, cruelty-free, and 100% made in Italy. The company strives to minimize environmental impact through the use of electric machinery powered by solar panels.
