The slimy trail of lubricating mucous left by a meandering snail may not seem the likely source of a beauty ingredient. But a Chilean company, called Labcconte, is out to prove that the extract from the mollusk’s ooze will provide the key for gentle, effective skin care in an antiaging line.
According to Juliane Park, chief executive officer of Labcconte USA, the slime is rich in alantoine, collagen, elastin, glycolic acid and natural antibiotics, used to repair damaged tissue, brighten skin and fight acne. The brand uses the snail slime in each of its antiaging skin care products.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
