Snail Mucin

What is Snail Mucin and what are its benefits?

We’ve all heard about people using Snail Mucin, and as much as for some it may sound unappealing, the reality is that it has wonderful benefits for our skin. A must-have this winter, this on-trend skincare ingredient is a great choice to consider if you’re struggling with dry skin or inflammation.

The words Snail Mucin refers to the excretions produced by snails, and as quoted in Good Housekeeping, “Beauty products tagged with snail mucin ingredients actually tend to use snail secretion filtrate, a processed and sanitized version of snail mucin that's more suitable for cosmetics.” *

It’s believed that this ingredient has qualities that are moisturising, antioxidant, antibacterial, wound healing, and anti-aging, and has been used by people for centuries. 

Snail Mucin can be used on all skin types, although its moisturising characteristics make it particularly suitable for individuals with dry skin.

Now made popular by Korean skincare beauty influencers, this product has taken social media by storm and you can buy a range of products which include Snail Mucin. 

At Skin Cupid we have a range of Snail Mucin products for you to choose from

The COSRX All About Snail Kit is a great option for those who want to dive deep into Snail Mucin and reap the rewards. This fantastic set includes four of Cosrx's best-selling products from their cult favourite snail line. The line is well-known for its revolutionary recipe as well as its nourishing, anti-aging, and brightening effects. 

The products will improve the skin's natural radiance, remove pigmentation/dark spots, and profoundly moisturise the skin's layers. These products are ideal for those who want to try the products or take them with them when travelling.

The COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream is also a worthy contender and contains 92% Snail Mucin. This soothing moisturiser hydrates and nourishes the skin while improving the skin barrier and preventing skin damage. The composition also contains Hyaluronic Acid and Adenosine, which act to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and fill the face to give it a dewy appearance.

CORSX also do the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Mini which is a great option for when you’re travelling. Formulated with 96% Snail Secretion Filtrate, which seals in moisture while also repairing and strengthening the skin barrier. This light-weight essence quickly absorbs into the skin, providing deep hydration - after using this product, your face will have a healthy glass skin look.

Another brand to look out for when shopping for Snail Mucin is NEOGEN. The NEOGEN  Dermalogy Cica Repair Snail Essence is a great way to revitalise dry/dehydrated and dull skin. This essence, which contains 96% Snail Secretion Filtrate, locks in moisture and has the potential to heal and build the skin barrier.

The NEOGEN Dermalogy Cica Repair Snail Cream is also a great investment. With 88% Snail Mucin, this cream helps regenerate, enhance suppleness, and reveal a more youthful complexion over time! This cream, which contains 2% Niacinamide, inhibits melanin synthesis and brightens the skin, as well as any dark spots/pigmentation, leaving you with a clear and healthy skin tone.

The BEAUTY OF JOSEON Revive Serum is another great option if you’re looking for a renewed version of the Repair serum. Whist the main ingredient in the Ginseng Root Water, this also includes Snail Secretion Filtrate, and this magic bottle not only moisturises the skin but also protects it from pollution and UV radiation, which cause hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.
