IF YOU HAVE GOT A FUEL OF SUN, now pamper your skin!
Sea, mountain or lake, if the sun has accompanied your holidays, now it’s high time to think about watering your skin.
Among the many natural ingredients that facilitate the reintegration of skin hydration, we would like to focus on the secretion of snails, which since few years has proved to be a very valuable element for the beauty routine of women of all ages.
Why is snail secretion so popular in skin-care?
Since ancient times snails have always been considered a therapeutic resource, and snail slime has always been used as a cicatrizant or to soothe burns and redness. Snail secretion in fact has incredible regenerative properties; according to many scientific studies, the fluid that the land snail secretes protects against free radicals, environmental pollution and UV radiation. This would be the reason why the snail is not subject to skin infections, even after passing through the most uneven surfaces.
How does snail secretion work on the skin?
When the snail mucopolysaccharide extract reaches the fibroblasts, it increases their proliferation and functional capacity. Fibroblasts are responsible for the formation of all those elements that are part of the skin matrix, including collagen, elastin, GAGs and proteins.
What are the effects of snail secretion on the skin?
- Through its anti-oxidant action, it helps maintain healthy skin, improving cellular activity.
- Smoothes and prevents skin deformities, including acne and post-acne conditions
- Repairs damage from excessive sun exposure, preventing photo-induced damage and roughness
- Accelerates the renewal of damaged tissues
- Opens occluded pores
- Accelerates skin cellular turn-over
- Returns elasticity to the skin
- Prevents and smoothes stretch marks
- It acts as a sebum regulator
This natural balm, rich in allantoin, a natural protein, vitamins, collagen, elastin and glycolic acid, can be considered a valid non-invasive alternative for those who have problems of sensitization for example to retinoids or alphahydroxy acids.
In fact, snail secretion is not only effective but it is also very safe, as it is completely compatible with the cellular component.
Products containing snail mucopolysaccharide offer a new alternative to classic cosmetic treatments, using the natural process of cellular turn-over in a more complete and balanced way
