Discover the characteristics of snail drool.
To facilitate their movements, snails continually secrete burr: This allows them to “slip” on the belly moving more quickly. Not only that, the slime soothes and cicles the small wounds that the snail obtains during the displacements. It also allows snails to remain attached to vertical surfaces. More and more often we hear about snail drool as a product “miraculous” for the skin: smoothes out expression wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and lightens skin stains!

It allows to slow down the progressive skin ageing, making the tissues more tonic and elastic. In addition to alleviating wrinkles, it makes scars, skin stains, burns and other blemishes less visible.

- Purifying and anti-acne
