use the snail slime for skin care is not new. The Drooling of the Helix Aspersa Müller (small gray snail) has been used by "mapuche" (Amerindians living in Chile and Argentina) since antiquity. If this snail slime is currently recommended, it is thanks to its multiple virtues: rich in active subtances, regenerative, antioxidant.
Clinical trials carried out in the 2000s (COANIQUEM in Chile) show that in 77,7% of cases, creams made from snail slime have a beneficial effect on scars et grafts caused by burns.
La Snail slime contains four natural elements essential to the proper treatment of the skin:allantoin, the antimicrobial peptides, the e and the enzymatic glycoproteins.
- The allantoin has regenerative properties of the cells of the epidermis which will help reduce acne, reduce scars and treat burns. Ultimately, the aging process of the skin will be slowed down.
- The antimicrobial peptides allow to restore elasticity and suppleness to the skin, also capable of erasing wrinkles, dead cells and reducing stretch marks.
- The e are natural exfoliators capable of erasing dead skin cells.
- The enzymatic glycoproteins regenerate cells of vitamins A, C and E, resulting in a tanned complexion, a more hydrated skin and a delay of cutaneous aging.
En cosmetic, we mainly use it for skin care. It is found especially in creams to treat Brown stains, acne, orange peel, rides and the scars.

Its active ingredients, its regenerative and antioxidant properties make it a unique curative product. In the 2000 years, at the COANIQUEM in Chile (polyclinic for burned children), work has been published on clinical trials concerning the application of cream based on snail slime on scars caused by burns. The results were published in the journal of members of the Occupational Therapy Unit Aid Corporation.
The trials were carried out on 36 patients: 18 with the cream based on snail slime and 18 with conventional care. The cream based on snail slime has demonstrated clear results in terms of dermatological improvement: 77,7% of excellent results and without side effects. It has been concluded that the cream made from snail slime is an excellent therapy for the treatment of scars and grafts caused by burns.
The secretion of snail contains in its natural state:
Allantoin: a substance which has powerful healing properties and which accelerates skin regeneration. It is known for its softening, soothing and anti-irritant properties. Allantoin also helps with granulation, which is a step in repairing skin tissue. Finally allantoin regulates sebum secretions and is antiperspirant.
Glycolic acid: gum and removes dead skin cells is an excellent exfoliant.
Collagen: protein essential to the healing process and elasticity of tissues, therefore brings more flexibility to the epidermis.
elastin: gives the elasticity of the organ that contains it.
Vitamin E: an antioxidant that protects protects vital cells, reduces inflammation and promotes hydration of the skin.
Vitamin C: protects against viral or bacterial infections, skin aging and helps the healing of tissues.
Vitamin A: provides a tanned complexion while promoting hydration of the skin.
Natural antibiotics which destroy the pathogens present on the surface of the skin as well as in the pores (which cause acne among other things) and act as a protective barrier thus preventing infections.
