Snail Mucin or Snail Secretion Filtrate is probably one of the best known K-Beauty ingredients. Snail mucin is a mega multi-tasker, with the ability to do everything from moisturise to boost the production of collagen, the protein responsible for strong, youthful skin.
Moisturizes the skin: Snail mucin contains moisturising agents that work to repair the barrier function of the skin, both locking out irritants from the environment while also simultaneously locking in moisture.
Stimulates collagen production: Snail mucin is comprised of ingredients meant to repair or protect from injury. These include growth factors, which work by triggering the growth of new skin cells and new collagen. And, as we know, more collagen equals fewer wrinkles and younger-looking skin.
Soothes irritation: Allantoin is another key component in the secretion, an ingredient with healing properties that calms irritation, as well as smoothes the skin and stimulates cell regeneration.
Delivers important vitamins and minerals: Snail mucin is loaded with a list of good-for-your skin nutrients, including anti-inflammatory zinc and healing manganese. It contains copper peptides, also lauded for their collagen-increasing and wrinkle-decreasing effect, as well as vitamins A and E, both of which are great antioxidants.
