Snail slimeand acne scars
Acne is often an unavoidable phase for teenagers and unfortunately it sometimes leaves traces behind. With its unsightly blemishes and nasty scars, it is a skin condition that one could really do without. But what solutions actually exist to tackle acne? Have you considered natural solutions that are kind to your skin? At RoyeR Cosmétique, many of our clients swear by our snail creams as a treatment for their acne or for removing their scars. Read about the four benefits of snail slime on acne below.
How does the composition of snail slime improve acne?
Allantoin repairs and regenerates
The epidermis is put to a severe test during flares of acne. Damaged tissue needs to be repaired and to regenerate in order for healthy skin to be restored. It is here that allantoin, one of the key active ingredients in snail slime, plays a role. It repairs the damage caused by acne – and especially the scars that it tends to leave behind – and renews skin cells.
Collagen facilitates healing
Acne pimples are what we call skin lesions. In order to not leave marks on the skin, these lesions need to be allowed to heal properly. Collagen comes into play here to facilitate the healing process. It is extremely powerful since it enables the skin to regain its resistance, while at the same time restoring excellent elasticity and firmness.
Vitamins A & C provide a healthy glow
Due to the skin lesions that it causes, acne dehydrates the skin. To treat acne effectively, your skin also needs careful attention and moisturization. The vitamins A and C found naturally in snail slime help to fulfil this essential step. They promote moisture in the skin, while giving it a healthy glow.
Glycolic acid erases scars
A number of factors, like the poor treatment of acne pimples or sun exposure, prevent the skin from healing properly and can lead to unsightly scarring. A scar can never fully disappear, but you can help it to fade. And for that, there is nothing better than glycolic acid. It improves the appearance and texture of the epidermis, while refining the skin and even bringing a glow to your complexion.
Did you know that...? After observing how the snail regenerates its own shell with its slime, experiments were conducted on human skin. The verdict was soon reached: snail mucin has a powerful healing effect. Its healing and regenerative properties play a role in skin cell renewal.
It is also from observation that the Royer brothers had the idea to develop and manufacture creams and cosmetic products with snail slime. These snail farmers in the Vendée from one generation to the next realized that their hands were softer and smoother after handling their snails. And so, in 2013, a range of cosmetics with fresh snail mucin was launched under the brand name RoyeR Cosmétique.

Fresh mucin rather than less concentrated snail slime extract
Most snail creams that you find on the market are made using extract and not fresh snail slime as is the case with RoyeR Cosmétique creams. Fresh mucin has a pure concentration of active ingredients, unlike snail slime extract which, as its name suggests, is not as concentrated. Needless to say that, depending on the above, the effectiveness on your acne or scars will not be the same.
Natural ingredients to care for your acne-suffering skin
Your epidermis has suffered, or is still suffering from, numerous lesions caused by acne. For some people, these will leave marks on the face, due to improper healing. One thing is clear – your skin has been sensitized and now needs gentle treatment. It is therefore time to stop using aggressive products with dubious formulas and go natural and organic with our skin and hair care range. Our Cosmebio certified snail creams are made with 99% natural ingredients.
A controlled production process for a high quality anti-acne cream
It is extremely important to know exactly what you are putting on your damaged and sensitive skin. You can do this by opting for a high quality snail cream, with a completely transparent manufacturing process. A wrong choice could in fact make your acne worse!
