Also known as snail slime, or goo, snail mucin is hugely beneficial for the skin and Cosrx has one of the best snail mucins on the market.
What is snail mucin?
While it may sound a little icky at first, snail mucin is exactly what it sounds like, it is the slime created by a snail or snail secretion. But, despite the name, snail mucin has some incredible effects on the skin.
Sheel Desai-Solomon, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Raleigh-Durham, NC once explained to Byrdie:
It’s a trusted ingredient in the K-beauty world and has become a popular one because it can offer noticeable results.
Due to it’s soothing and hydrating properties as well as the addition of zinc and manganese, snail mucin is also great for reducing irritation and speeding up the process of cell regeneration.
Not to mention it is perfectly suited for all skin types and tones and is paraben, fragrance and alcohol-free so there are no nasties that could irritate the skin.
