Hello, ageless beauties!
Remember our talk about snail secretion in skincare? It's time to slide back into that world as recent scientific studies unravel a secret elixir for anti-aging – not just from the snail secretion but their eggs as well! Yep, the gastropod is full of surprises!
Based on a fascinating study titled “**Efficacy and Safety of a New Cosmeceutical Regimen Based on the Combination of Snail Secretion Filtrate and Snail Egg Extract to Improve Signs of Skin Aging**” by Vanessa Ziying Lim and her team, we've gleaned some fascinating insights:
Unlocking the Gastropod’s Gifts 🎁🐌
Snail Secretion Filtrate, known as **SCA®**, isn't just slimy goodness – it packs a fibroblast growth factor-like activity that aids dermal regeneration. But the surprises don't end there! The snail’s eggs offer an extract called **IFC®-CAF**, which has been found to stimulate skin stem cell activity. Talk about a double whammy of age-defying power!
Diving into the Study: A Two-Phased Approach 📊
Lim and her research colleagues ventured into a three-month study on fifty women between the ages of 45-65 years, each exhibiting signs of photoaging. The participants followed a daily skincare routine segmented into two treatment phases: an intensive month, followed by a two-month maintenance period. They either received the active ingredients (30 subjects) or a placebo (20 subjects).
The Remarkable Findings 🌟
1. Barrier Boost: Participants receiving the active treatment witnessed reduced transepidermal water loss – meaning a stronger skin barrier that retains moisture effectively!
2. Smoother and Firmer Skin: The snail extracts worked their magic to lessen skin roughness while enhancing firmness and elasticity.
3. Wrinkle Warrior: Both groups saw considerable improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. But guess what? The active treatment group took the lead, according to both Patient Global Assessment (PGA) and Investigator Global Assessment (IGA) scales.
To Sum it Up...
In the age-old quest for ageless beauty, snail extracts, with their rich regenerative properties, are proving to be the frontrunners. Not only does the secretion filtrate work wonders, but snail egg extract, with its ability to kickstart skin stem cell activity, takes the anti-aging game to a whole new level!
