Do you fancy using snail cream to clear acne, heal scars or beat wrinkles?

October 25, 2012 by Works with Water

Cream made from snail slime could be the latest beauty craze, as it has been claimed it can be used to treat acne, help fight the signs of ageing and reduce the appearance of pigmentation and scarring.

Dermatologist Dr Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas said:

“The extract is renowned for its regenerative properties and facilitates the restoration of damaged tissue and replenishes moisture in skin.”

The qualities of the mucus were discovered accidentally when Chilean farmers noticed their skin healed quickly when they handled snails for the French market.

Is snail slime is just one more ingredient in the quest for ever more weird and wonderful natural products to boost cosmetic sales? Snake venom, bee mucus, diamond dust, shark oil, chicken marrow, bird feces and even (get ready for it), bull semen have all appeared on beauty counters.

As bizarre and unappealing as they may sound, the potential of reduced wrinkles seems to outweigh the ‘ick factor.’ And if that extends to smearing snail slime all over the face, so be it… but would you?
