Elicina’s innovative line of moisturizing, skin-restorative snail cream skincare products that are comprised of 80 percent snail mucin, is now available for purchase on perfume, fragrance, cologne and lotion e-commerce site, NPIBeauty.com.
Elicina products rely on the healing properties of secretion of the Chilean brown snail, a compound that is scientifically proven to help repair damaged skin through increased production of collagen and elastin. Each Elicina product has a unique purpose, harnessing the power of the snail mucin — without harming the snail — and adding other regenerative compounds.
“Elicina products have anti-aging effects ranging from helping to remove wrinkles and blemishes, to helping repair scar tissue and reducing and healing acne sores and scars,” Elicina General Manager Paula Bascunan said. “We offer different products for different skin types, including creams with added moisturizers for people with extra dry skin and hypoallergenic creams for people with sensitive skin.”
Snail mucin is the common term for the snail extract, referred to commonly as “snail secretion filtrate” on cosmetic ingredient lists. The regenerative properties of snail mucin are supported by scientific studies, indicating that it helps with the production of collagen and elastin through its key ingredients: hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, proteoglycans and antimicrobial copper peptides. The Chilean snail’s mucin has antibiotic properties and its peptides, proteins and vitamins have anti-inflammatory properties.
Elicina is the market leader in premium snail cream skincare products, and the company distributes around the world. Elicina offers hypoallergenic products that are safe for people of all ages, containing 80 percent snail mucin. Products available on NPIBeauty.com include regular and pocketsize versions of Nourishing Cream and Moisturizing Cream, and the company’s Eco Elicina XT Eye Contour Cream, all recently repackaged to suit U.S. guidelines.
“Snail mucin was first used in beauty products by Chilean skincare brand Elicina in 1995,” Mark Tutton wrote in a recent CNN Money piece on the company. “The idea came from snail farmers in the country, who claimed that scratches on their hands healed faster when they handled garden snails.”
Elicina’s products are all derived from the Helix Aspersa Muller snail, of the species Cornu Aspersum, native to Chile. No snails are harmed in the mucin-harvesting process.
