Snail Slime Le Chioccioline®


Snail slime is the secretion that the snail naturally produces and releases as it passes. It contains an infinite number of substances useful for our skin and for this reason it has been used in cosmetics for centuries. In snail slime we find:

MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDES: Contained in a very high percentage, they perform an essential function for the skin to retain water, thus ensuring an intense and prolonged moisturizing efficacy.

ALLANTOIN: Contrasts free radicals and stimulates tissue regeneration, promotes epidermal turnover and promotes the proliferation of keratinocytes (replacing dead cells with new cells). Speeds up the healing of small skin lesions and minor burns.

COLLAGEN: essential constituent of the skin, it has moisturizing and softening functions. Thanks to its elasticizing properties, it makes the skin soft and toned.

GLYCOLIC ACID: Exerts an exfoliating action on the most superficial layers of the epidermis and stimulates the formation of collagen directly in the dermis, making the skin brighter.

ELASTIN: is a nourishing enzyme that makes the skin elastic. It plays an essential role in restoring tone to mature skin or skin returning from pregnancy or weight loss.

VITAMINS, ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS AND PROTEINS: they promote peripheral vascularization by oxygenating the skin and guaranteeing nourishment and hydration to the skin. Vitamins have an antioxidant activity.

The snail slime is subjected to a freeze-drying process which guarantees the elimination of the watery part of the slime and above all eliminates 100% of any heavy metals contained in it, without however altering the composition of the active ingredient, which, on the contrary, being more concentrated, guarantees a greater effectiveness in terms of yield of the products themselves. This technique allows to break down the natural bacterial load contained in the snail slime and to minimize the use of preservatives.

The extraction of snail slime takes place from adult animals, it is a patented system that exploits the action of steam combined with ozone and biological phytoextracts. The snails subjected to extraction are not subjected to any ill-treatment and immediately after the collection of the secretion  they are reintroduced into the pens. An integral and essential part of the extraction process is ozone, a natural gas that allows the animal to be treated and sanitized to prepare it for natural deburring. The sanitization of the burr is guaranteed by microbiological tests, which ascertain the absence of pathogenic bacteria and the purity of the extracts. The result is a 98.8% pure product of the highest quality level.
