Snail mucin is the slime or secretion that the snails produces and leaves a trail of in their wake. Finding this out could make you feel a little less squeamish about trying it on your skin and you would be glad to know that innocent snails aren’t killed for these popular skincare products (read more below about how snail mucin is harvested).

How is snail mucin harvested? Is it cruelty-free?

The snails ARE NOT killed or hurt while collecting snail secretion. Although snails are lab-grown, they live in optimal and very comfortable environments to allow them to have adequate rest (to optimise their secretion filtrate production).

The exact process of collecting the mucin varies amongst manufacturers, but COSRX has revealed how they collect snail secretion filtrate for their products without harming the snails in the process:

Snails are nocturnal creatures, so COSRX’s method involves placing the snails over a mesh net in a dark and quiet room (the mesh is not electrified at all). The snails are left for about half an hour to roam the nets and do their thing, leaving mucin behind for collection. The mucin is then processed to stabilise it and to make it suitable for cosmetic use. No stress is applied to the snails in this process as optimal mucin production occurs when the snails are well relaxed.

What are the benefits of Snail Mucin?

The same has become K-beauty’s jewel ingredient and has now even made its way to the big-box stores. This is because of the huge range of benefits that snail mucin has for your skin, including treating acne, fading hyperpigmentation and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also suitable for all skin types.

  • Hydrates the skin deeply- Snail Mucin includes hyaluronic acid which helps you instantly hydrate the skin.
  • Prevents acne and repairs damage skin- Snail Mucin has antimicrobial and healing properties which help in keeping acne-causing bacteria at bay and heals acne scars. However, the glycolic acid in snail mucin also helps to prevent breakouts by exfoliating the skin (and thereby removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores).
  • Fades hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, inflammation and redness- it contains many ingredients like proteins, peptides and elastin, which help in healing acne scars, post-acne inflammation, hyperpigmentation and the redness caused.
  • Fades wrinkles and fine line, Boosts collagen, Produces elastin – As hyaluronic acid is present in Snail Mucin, this boosts collagen & elastin production in skin and plumps your skin, resulting in reducing of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps in making the skin look firmer and more youthful.
