Escargot has long been sought after as an exquisite delicacy and caviar extracts have been used in some of the finest conditioners on the market. Considering this, it's no surprise that the snail facial is gaining global popularity. Snail mucin contains some of the most powerful skin care ingredients on the market; collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, allantoin, glycolic acid, vitamins (A, C, E) and peptide antibiotics, copper peptides and proteoglycans.
In a very humane approach, the perfect snails are lifted from their habitat to give you the gift of their mucin. Our estheticians will guide these tiny animals along the areas of your skin which need the most attention. This process is far superior to purchasing mucin commercially as the filtration and drying process prevent mucin from being delivered in pure form.
Snail mucin treats a variety of skin issues including dry skin, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne, age spots, rosacea, burn marks, razor bumps, warts and scars. Allantoin, a compound in mucin, is widely known for its soothing and healing properties. In fact, the famous ancient Greek physician Hippacrates recommended that his patients take sour milk with crushed snails to calm inflammation.
There are no known side effects of snail mucin, however a test patch on the forearm may be done prior to beginning the service to determine if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients. And we can thank the Chilean farmers who noticed visibly smoother skin after long term exposure to mucin for this snail craze that's here to stay.
