Unlocking the Secret of Snail Mucin: Rainbow Snail's Skincare Revolution

What problems does natures miracle, Snail Mucin, address?

RainbowSnail products work well with all skin types. All our products contain snail mucin. Snail mucin or snail slime is one of the buzziest new ingredients in the skincare world. It is proven to work miracles with sensitive, problematic skin conditions as well as a deep moisturiser and helps slow ageing processes.  It will offer distinct benefits with great stuff that your skin loves! 

      “A product containing snail mucin would be great for anyone suffering from skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea”, Georgia Smith a cosmetic chemist says. Allantoin is one of the key components in secretion, an ingredient with healing properties that calms irritation, smoothes the skin, and stimulates cell regeneration. 

     Products, containing snail mucin may be great choices for people with dry skin. “It contains hydrating characteristics that serve to strengthen the skin barrier and keep moisture in,” says Anna Chacon, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in Miami. Since snail mucin is a natural source for glycolic and hyaluronic acid as well as collagen and elastin it immediately hydrates the skin.  According to a study published in June 2021 in Dermatology and Therapy, hyaluronic acid serum increases skin hydration by 134 per cent immediately after application and improves plumpness, smoothness, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

Snail mucin promotes collagen production and gives your skin a more youthful look. It could be achieved by glycolic acid, found in snail mucin. The glycolic acid stimulates collagen formation, which not only reduces fine lines and wrinkles but also helps your skin look young overall. Snail mucin also contains vitamins A and E, both of which are great antioxidants. 

Snail mucin is also known for healing benefits and it has been shown to enhance wound healing, and it can improve the appearance of scarring. It can help with acne due to its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, says Ahmed Chaudhry, MD, a dermatologist, and consultant with Scandinavian Biolabs based in Islamabad, Pakistan. Snail mucin contains natural antibiotics as well as such active substances as heparan sulfate and calcium. Those components are very powerful anti-bacterial ingredients and play a role in the restoration of the tissue.
