Snail slime and snake venom

Magic potions for your skin!

Natural products are in. There's no doubt about it. And while you might not be ready for grasshoppers and ants in your diet, you're going to want these ingredients in your beauty products: snail slime and snake venom. Let's take a look at how these exotic substances can transform your skin.

SNAIL SLIME

What does it do?

When it's damaged, the snail's shell repairs itself in just a few days. How? Thanks to these special compounds in the snail's mucus (commonly called slime): allantoin, which helps with regeneration; glycolic acid, which eliminates dead cells; collagen and elastin, which maintain the elasticity of body tissues; and natural antibiotics to combat infection. But this ultra-powerful combination isn't just great for snails, it's the ideal formula to help tone, revitalize and rejuvenate your own skin!

How are they used in cosmetics?

Naturally harvested then purified and concentrated in labs, snail slime is combined with elements like aloe vera and silicon. The result? Soothing, nourishing formulas whose texture resembles that of a gel or a serum so they're easily integrated into our beauty routine morning or night, after cleansing. Simply apply a small amount to your face and neck and massage gently for younger-looking skin, guaranteed!

SNAKE VENOM

What does it do?

Snakebites have the power to paralyze our muscles due to the presence of a peptide in the venom that blocks muscular contractions. In tiny doses, the peptide induces an effect like that of Botox, one of the staples of anti-aging cosmetic treatments: it relaxes facial muscles to prevent the appearance of wrinkles, creating smoother-looking skin.

How are they used in cosmetics?

Snake-venom peptide extracts are often used in products enriched with collagen, Shea butter and hyaluronic acid. These creams repulp, moisturize and soothe your skin to create a rejuvenating effect so they're ideal for use day or night.
