French Soap With Snail Extract

Snail Extract Soap

You may think this is a new beauty trend but snail extract has in fact been used for centuries as a well known skin remedy and beautifying treatment. Used as a skin treatment in ancient Greece, Hippocrates prescribed a snail essence-based home remedy for external inflammation. In France it was noticed that snail farmers had extremely smooth skin, and was therefore a sought after moisturiser. Snail essence has made a big comeback in recent years as a Korean-based beauty trend. Many skin care brands are selling moisturisers, masks, makeup creams and serums with snail slime in them, there are even snail-infused facials available in New York aptly named; “EscarGlow”!

When snails are agitated, they excrete a thick fluid as a means to protect themselves. When concentrated, this slimy snail mucin is said to aid human skin by hydrating, preventing ageing and improving wrinkles and scars. The nature of the snail essence itself is that it is very thick, full of nutrients and provides a protective coating. Snail extract contains the super hydrating hyaluronic acid,  glycoprotein enzymes and peptides, all great additions for a great looking skin!

Here at The Candle Tree, we sell luxurious French soap which contains this wonderfully beneficial snail extract, a treat to protect and enhance your skin. With the addition of soothing shea butter, this soap is a natural skin booster for all skin types, especially sensitive, dry and ageing.
