Snail mucin is the mucus secreted by a snail or slug when it crawls. Its scientific name is mucopolysaccharide, which typically is the name for ingredients that have a long chain of sugar molecules that are found throughout the body, often in mucus and in fluid around the joints.1

“Snail mucin contains various compounds like glycoproteins, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and enzymes that can offer multiple benefits to the skin.” – Dr. Tina Alster, co-founder and formulator for The A Method

"There’s just something kind of magical about the way snail mucin plumps the skin and smooths out texture. When layered with other hydrating serums and moisturizer, it creates a really lovely silk-like finish. It also provides a great boost of antioxidants and barrier support.” – Jenny Ragolia, XYZ XYZ
