The snail juice, is actually called Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates, it’s a mix of proteins, elastin and glycolic acids that protect it from damage, UV rays and infection, but now has been harnessed into a beauty cream for your skin.
It has been reported that the snail slime boosts the skins water retention, wound healing and even stimulates the production of collagen.
While dermatologist Dr. Bobby Buka told Today.come that “there are no placebo-controlled trials demonstrating the efficacy of snail slime or mucus in skin rejuvenation”, users of the products can’t stop raving about it.
