It's time you discover the amazing effects of snail slime!
It might seem odd to you, but the mucus of snail has tremendous benefits for your skin. The healing properties of snails are nothing new. The famous Greek physician Hippocrates is known to have prescribed crushed snails and sour milk to treat inflammation and burning of skin. Snail slime is not just another ordinary cosmetic skin care product in the market. It is undergoing several scientific tests and so far has proved to be successful.
What is Snail Slime?The extract for snail cream is called Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates. It is a mucus or fluid that snails release. This mucus is excreted by the snails to help them move and protect them from dangerous bacteria. The snail slime contains substances that have proven to enhance our skin’s beauty.
Early time discoveriesIn the 1960s, a Spanish oncologist named Rafael Abad accidentally discovered the healing properties of snail serum. While subjecting snails to radiation therapy used to treat cancer, he discovered that snails released mucus when stimulated. He noticed that by excreting this fluid, they were able to heal very quickly following the harmful radiations. He then tested the effects of this substance on human skin and found positive results.
In Chile in 1995 some farmers, while exporting snails to Europe, noticed that small cuts and scrapes on their hands were quickly healed when they were handling snails. Since then, plenty of research has been done on snail slime to discover its benefits to human skin.
