Snail Skincare?!

Been quite a loyal fan of Bio-Essence's skincare products since 2011.
Started using their V-shape face lifting cream ever since I saw this video.
If you have been going to local Watsons or Guardian, you may already seen this on their shelves, their latest products featuring:

Yeah I know, I know. A tad gross..................

.... But hey, it's the newest skincare phenomenon! 

Did a lil research about how snail became a technology for skincare.
Just a quick summary of what I've found on the Internet:
  • Snails are first marketed for gastronomic purposes in the 80s.
  • Chilean farmers discovered that their hands became extremely soft when they handled the snails.
    Injuries caused by the sharp snail cages healed quickly without becoming infected and also there wasn't any scars.
  • Soon, they realized that a snail's shell could also repair human skin.
  • The eldest son of the Chilean family directed a rigorous scientific study about the properties of the snail secretions to have extraordinary regenerative capacity on human skin.
When I went to Korea last year, almost every skincare shop in Myeong-dong carries at least one type of SNAIL related products - NOT KIDDING.

For those that aren't able to get your hands on those Korean skincare, fret not!
Bio-Essence came out with their Bio-energy Snail secretion series!
The uniqueness of Snail secretion is that it naturally comes in glutinous and elastic texture that is easily absorbed into the skin to leave it instantly smooth and suppler after application.

Ever thought how those tiny snails are able to repair their severed body parts naturally? 

Well the truth is that they discharge their body fluid (Snail secretion) as a protective coat to help them glide along the ground with ease.
They are also known to never suffer from the roughest surface thank to its' body fluid, which is also rich in proteins.
Snail secretion has fibroblast growth factor too.
*Fibroblast: A body's constructive crew that helps repair tissues and creates collagen.
