BEAUTY’S NEW INGREDIENT IS HERE! INTRODUCING: SNAIL SLIME GEL FROM PROAORA
Get your pen and paper (or even your smart phone) ready to take some serious notes because there is a new killer anti-aging skincare ingredient in town. There is a new buzzword in skincare and the science supports its status as an all-powerful ingredient that’s taking the beauty world by STORM. It has been dubbed the new way to combat fine lines and wrinkles and reveal beautifully youthful, hydrated and even skin. Here at Proaora, we’re all about targeted and scientifically proven products that transform our customer’s skin delivering immediate and long-term results, and spoiler alert – snail slime is worth the hype. Here is everything you need to know about this seriously effective skincare ingredient but before we begin, a small disclaimer – snail slime (also known as snail filtrate) is a naturally produced substance and obtained without any harm to the animal.
WHAT IS IT?
Put simply, the slime is naturally excreted from the snail to keep its body healthy and hydrated as well as to slow down friction so they can move more easily. Widely used in Korean skincare, snail filtrate is what can be described as a mega multi-tasker, with the ability to provide everything from moisturisation to boosting collagen production. Snail slime is packed with collagen, hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, proteoglycans, and antimicrobial and copper peptides, which protect from damage, infection, dryness, and UV rays. Basically, all the good stuff.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Given its cocktail of skincare hero ingredients, it is phenomenal for treating all kinds of skin concerns including sensitivity, dehydration, redness, and irritation. Those with aging skin will immediately notice plumper, healthier and brighter skin with reduced fine lines. If getting your snail slime fix at home is more preferable than having live snails crawl across your face as part of a facial (yes, that’s a real thing!) then the Proaora Snail Essence Facial Gel with Astaxanthin is perfect. Our Gel is packed with 97% natural ingredients including astaxanthin, glycolic acid and allantoin, skin is revealed as brighter and fresher. The snail filtrate we use in our formulation is filtered multiple times to increase its potency and purity.
- It protects the skin from damage by ultraviolet radiation and slows the aging process due to its high antioxidant content.
- It reduces the depth of existing facial wrinkles and smooths the skin’s surface.
- Primarily used for wound healing by the animal, it accelerates the healing of any damaged tissues, helps prevent keloid scarring and increases cell turnover to restore elasticity.
- Prevents and eliminates stretch marks / acne scars.
- Alleviates skin conditions such as rosacea and dermatitis.
WHY HAVE YOU ADDED ASTAXANTHIN?
The observant readers amongst you will notice a potentially unfamiliar ingredient is included within our formula. Astaxanthin is the cornerstone of our formulations here at Proaora and for good reason, as it’s one of natures most potent antioxidants. Classified as a carotenoid, Astaxanthin is a naturally derived ingredient primarily present in marine life and is clinically proven to increase skin moisture, moisture retention, elasticity, as well as promote skin smoothness and decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. The antioxidant power of Astaxanthin is clinically proven to be 60 times more powerful than Vitamin C and more potent than Vitamin E, ensuring that the skin receives an exceptionally high level of protection against the prematurely ageing damage of environmental aggressors. With this in mind, we thought it made the perfect partner for snail filtrate and our customers agree!
HOW DO I USE IT?
We recommend using it at night after your usual cleansing routine. Still not sold yet? R
