What ingredients compose snail slime cosmetics
Out of the products available on the market, Mira Cosmetici’s ones contain the highest concentration of pure slime. To assess the quality and effectiveness of a product, just refer to the INCI listing (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) which is legally required on all packaging.
It is not artificially added water, but water that is naturally contained in slime in various proportions.
Elastin and collagen
These two proteins are naturally present in our skin. They have the fundamental function of maintaining and restoring the skin's suppleness, thereby repairing the tissues. They are the proteins in charge of fighting wrinkles.
Vitamin C and E
Vitamin C stimulates collagen production while vitamin E slows down the cellular ageing phenomenon.
It is the slime itself, the secretion originating from the gliding of snails over a surface. It is a jelly-like substance with many regenerative properties for the skin.
Peptides and glycolic acid
These two elements apparently have the opposite function to elastin and collagen. In fact, they generate an exfoliating action, thus allowing the renewal and turnover of the superficial skin layer. In addition, they create a protective barrier that prevents the attack of external micro-organisms. Glycolic acid, in particular, has an astringent effect which tightens the pores, helps to keep the skin clean and limits the production of sebum. This is why snail slime cosmetics are also recommended for oily and acne-prone skin.
