Most of us have at some point tried beauty products containing snail mucus. Dermatologists often recommend them, particularly for sensitive and delicate skin types.
However, not everyone knows the origin of these products and the process by which snail mucus is extracted.
In this article, we delve into these aspects and share insights into our own brand. Keep reading if you're curious about your favorite beauty products.
Why Use Snail Mucus?
Snail mucus has become increasingly popular in the cosmetics industry. It contains essential components like lactic acid, collagen, glycolic acid, allantoin, and elastin.
These elements make up 84% of your favorite beauty products, which are often enriched with shea butter, hyaluronic acid, centella, aloe, and vitamin E.
The Perfect Time? Mating Season!
Snail mucus production starts during the snails' mating season, which occurs from April to June and September to November. During these months, snails mate up to four times and lay 50-100 eggs each.
