I Applied Snail Serum To My Face, and Then This Happened...
June 2016

First Impression: [...] I was pleasantly surprised by the scent. It had a very faint, soft fragrance—not at all what you would expect. And it didn’t bother me when I was dozing off to sleep! [...] I do think that the reason this serum works so well is because of its ability to stay on the skin versus being absorbed. It felt super-hydrating, I wish I had it for my whole body with how dry it is here in Arizona.

Results: I felt results after the first night. [...] Since this serum felt extremely hydrating, I could see fewer fine lines and a more even skin tone almost right away. After 7 days I would say that my skin overall felt more hydrated. I also noticed that it helped with some dark spots I had on my upper lip”

[...] plastic surgeon Matthew Schulman, M.D., offers clients the EscarGlow Facial ($2,000, series of six treatments), which uses the Biopelle® Tensage® Intensive Serum in his New York City practice. When snails are agitated, they produce a thick uid in order to protect themselves. In “The Effects of Filtrate of the Secretion of the Cryptomphalus aspersa on Photoaged Skin” in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, the slime was found to possess skin-regenerative properties. “The snail extract has potent growth factors proven to increase collagen and elastin production in the skin,” says licensed esthetician Amanda Sanzone. “It also includes antioxidants and peptides to nourish photodamaged and aging skin.” According to her, applying live snails to the skin isn’t nearly as effective as using the purified, concentrated snail extract in the Tensage® serum.
