Snail Secretion Filtrate is the excretion from snails. It is an effective moisturizer and promotes collagen production.

Snail Secretion helps repair the skin barrier, helping the skin stay hydrated. It also contains ingredients that tell the skin to create more collagen such as glycolic acid.

Snail Secretion Filtrate is also great for soothing skin because it also contains allantoin.

On top of this, Snail Secretion Filtrate contains a variety of vitamins and minerals. These include copper peptides, Vitamin A, and vitamin E. Vitamins A and E are antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight free-radicals, molecules that damage skin cells. Fighting off free-radicals can slow the process of wrinkle formation and hyperpigmentation.

Is Snail Secretion Filtrate cruelty-free?

Being cruelty-free means a brand does not experiment on animals.
If you're worried about the well-being of the snails, we recommend looking more into the company of the product. Many brands have developed humane methods to collect snail mucin.

Is Snail Secretion Filtrate vegan?

There is much debate on this subject. On one hand, this ingredient comes from an animal. On the other hand, many will argue the ingredient is naturally secreted (like a natural by-product) and therefore vegan. If you have reservations, you can look into Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate or Centella Asiatica Extract as alternatives.
