Helix aspersa (snail)

The snail is an invertebrate animal belonging to the phylum of mollusks. Strip on foot and using the shell as a defense against adverse weather conditions and external dangers.

The Foot, that part of the body that crawls on the ground, allows the movements and withdrawn with a stronger muscle, is formed by special glands that produce a mucopolysaccharide commonly called "slime." This consists of different fluids that perform multiple functions , including:

Lubrication: a translucent and not sticky mucus is produced under the foot to form a layer that allows the animal to "slip" on the surface without entering into direct contact. As a snail progresses to the action of the longitudinal muscles of the foot that contract, the mucus dries, forming a track silvery and shiny.

Membership: a fluid, more viscous and elastic, allows her to perform excellent adhesive properties. In fact, thanks to a particular protein component, the animal is able to adhere to an irregular surface and to cling to a vertical wall without falling.

Hydration and protection: in fact, the mucus lining the outer parts of the gastropod, in order to keep the body always moist on the surface, preventing the drying of the soft tissue exposed.

Scarring: scrolling constant snail on rough and bumpy, the environment in which he lives, needs constant tissue repair implemented by mucus.

Reproduction: a thin part of the layer of mucus that covers the foot is used for the reproduction of the gastropod.

The most common species is the Mediterranean Helix aspersa.

 

 

The use of  Helix aspersa in history.

Known since ancient times for food use and also a therapy is one of the most sought snails in culinary field, and the most easy to breed (elicicoltura). From the Middle Ages to the present day, the snail has traditionally been used in medicine for stomach problems, such as peptic ulcers and gastritis, heal wounds and stop bleeding, how to calm the cough syrup, dissolve phlegm and facilitate the elimination and how remedy to reduce pain from deep burns and improve the re-epithelialization of the injured tissue.

 

Chemical analysis: The snail contains in a totally natural components that are used for years for the preparation of creams for skin care. Indeed its qualitative chemical analysis revealed a combination of active substances rather complex, especially with the presence of allantoin, collagen, glycolic acid, lactic acid, vitamins, minerals and a natural antibiotic with disinfectant.

 

Allantoin: substance that stimulates the regeneration of tissues, promotes epidermal turnover and promotes proliferation of keratinocytes (replacing dead cells with new cells).

Elastin: protein that makes skin supple.

Collagen: essential constituent of the skin, which acts as a moisturizer and softener. In virtue of its elasticity, making the skin toned and supple.

Glycolic acid: allows to exfoliate the superficial layers of the skin and directly stimulates the formation of collagen in the dermis, making the skin more luminous.

Lactic acid is an organic acid belonging to the category of alpha hydroxy acids, substances that can break the bonds that form between keratinocytes, promoting skin desquamation, even down to the deeper layers of the epidermis. The Lactic Acid has exfoliating properties of skin, pH regulator and skin conditioning.

Vitamins, essential amino acids and other proteins: promote the peripheral vasculature and "oxygenate the skin", ensuring the supply of nutrients and hydration of the skin. The vitamins also play an antioxidant activity and healing.

 

Thanks to these features, the extract of snail slime is used in cosmetic preparations active against:

- Wrinkles and expression;

- Skin scars (burns, signs of chicken pox etc.);

- Stretch marks;

- Skin blemishes;

- Acne marks;

- Dehydration;

- Redness of the skin.

Extract Gentle Snail of our cosmetic line is made from "Helix aspersa" (snail) for food.

The secretion is collected and filtered in two stages, the first roughing and the second polishing. No fancy dilutions or chemical interventions.

The Gentle Snail is rich in mucopolysaccharides, which give it the characteristic viscosity and film-forming properties, protective and moisturizing. It also contains glycolic acid (moisturizing) and allantoin (restorative and protective). Find then applications in anti-aging, restituivi and forming effect, effective in fighting wrinkles. Thanks to its properties in fact fails to perform numerous actions beneficial for the skin, including:

> Action nutrient: thanks to the content of elastin and collagen fibers promises to make tissues more elastic and toned, with a consequent beneficial effect on wrinkles that become less visible.

> Exfoliating action: thanks to the presence of glycolic acid allows a gentle exfoliation of the surface layer of the skin.

> Regenerating: allantoin This allows, in fact, to erase the signs caused by scars, skin spots and burns, as well as slow down the process of skin aging.

> Antioxidant: Vitamin C and Vitamin E help reduce inflammation and counteract the action of free radicals.

> Purifying: peptides and glycolic acid content are useful in fighting acne by preventing the accumulation of impurities.

> Action Moisturizer: thanks to the proteins present, the snail helps tissue oxygenation and hydration.

As a cosmetic ingredient and then, the snail is recommended for acne-prone skin, to speed the repair of the epidermis and reduce the formation of acne marks, discoloration, and to improve the visibility of scars aesthetic, but also to prevent stretch marks and as an anti-wrinkle.

In conclusion, when applied to human skin, the snail has the following functions prevalent:

- It stimulates the formation of collagen, elastin and dermal components that repair the signs of photo-aging;

- The protein helps to give the skin a healthy, bright and tonic;

- Supports the protective barrier against external agents that attack the skin;

- The content of antioxidants slows down the process of premature aging of the skin, minimizing the damage caused by free radicals;

- Thanks to its exfoliating power, compact color leaving a face softer.

 

Can be used with extreme tranquility at any age and any skin type (elderly, children and pregnant women), it is a natural product.

Does not have allergic reactions and already the first applications erases signs of fatigue, making the skin smooth.Cosmetics Line Regenerating Extract of drool
