Dr. Organic Snail Gel is a moisturising, soothing, anti-aging gel which harnesses the remarkable cosmetic benefits of Helix Aspersia Muller, a unique substance the snail produces to quickly regenerate its own shell and skin when damaged. Combined with organic Aloe Vera and our proprietary blend of bioactive ingredients it effectively soothes and hydrates the skin.
Laboratory analysis of this incredible natural extract has shown that Helix Aspersia Muller contains a unique balance of beneficial components including Glycolic Acid, Collagen, Elastin, Allantoin, Vitamins and Minerals.
The unique healing and powers of the snail's slime, which is harvested without causing any harm, was discovered by chance by snail farmers in Chile who noticed their hands were incredibly soft and hydrated and minor cuts and scars were healing unusually quickly.
Further research and clinical testing found that the secretions contained high levels of naturally occurring allantoine, collagen, elastin and anti-bacterial substances that all have beneficial healing, smoothing and purifying effects on human skin. Dr Organic Snail Gel, available exclusively to Holland & Barrett, boasts a whole range of anti-ageing benefits including, softened wrinkles, smooth skin and scar reduction. It is free from all petro-chemicals and harsh additives which strip the skin of valuable moisture and can cause long-term damage, including parabens and sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). This is skincare that's pure, luxurious and effective.
Dr Organic Snail Gel is produced from snails that are farmed under humane and certified organic conditions. The snails are able to roam freely and the mucus secretion is collected from glass panes that they travel over. The secretion is collected, filtered and then concentrated by vacuum evaporation to reduce its water content before a mild preservative is added to maintain its shelf life.
This product is definitely good for my skin. Although may appear expensive, goes a long way so good value as well.

Review 2 for Snail Gel
Posted27 May 2014
From Devon UK
Using products for:One to five years
I like using this. It smooths and firms the skin on face and neck, temporarily. Feels and smells lovely. Absorbs quickly. I use on bare skin, then do moisturiser and put primer and make up on top of that. Will be buying again but a bit on the expensive side.
