Bragan Skincare Snail Mucin

Snail mucin, also known as snail secretion filtrate, is a powerhouse of beneficial ingredients for the skin. Each component offers unique properties that contribute to its overall effectiveness in skincare.

The following are the key components of snail mucin, along with their respective benefits:

1. Hyaluronic Acid:

  • Benefit: Hydration.
  • Function: Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture. This helps keep the skin hydrated, plump, and smooth, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Glycolic Acid:

  • Benefits: exfoliation and regeneration.
  • Function: Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover. This results in a brighter, more even complexion and helps reduce the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation.

3. Allantoin:

  • Benefits: healing and soothing.
  • Function: Allantoin is known for its healing properties. It promotes cell proliferation and regeneration, helping to repair damaged skin and reduce irritation. It also has a soothing effect, which is beneficial for sensitive or inflamed skin.

4. Proteins and Peptides:

  • Benefits: firming and anti-ageing.
  • Function: These components help to improve skin elasticity and firmness. Peptides can stimulate collagen production, which is essential for maintaining the skin’s structural integrity and reducing the signs of ageing.

5. Antioxidants:

  • Benefit:
  • Function: Antioxidants help to neutralise free radicals, which are harmful molecules that can damage skin cells and accelerate ageing. By protecting the skin from oxidative stress, antioxidants help maintain a youthful appearance.

6. Antimicrobial Properties:

  • Benefit: Preventing infections.
  • Function: Snail mucin has natural antimicrobial properties that help protect the skin from bacterial infections. People with conditions like acne or atopic dermatitis, which compromise the skin barrier, particularly benefit from the numerous components of snail mucin.

In summary:

Snail mucin’s unique combination of hydrating, exfoliating, healing, firming, and protective properties makes it an exceptional ingredient for skincare. Whether you are looking to hydrate dry skin, heal damaged areas, reduce signs of ageing, or protect against environmental stressors, snail mucin offers comprehensive benefits that can enhance your skin’s health and appearance.

Where it all started:

Hippocrates is considered to be the father of modern medicine because of his books, of which there are more than 70. He described, in a scientific manner, many diseases and their treatments after detailed observation. He lived about 2500 years ago. He was the first scientist to believe that diet, the surrounding environment, and people’s lifestyles contributed to any ailments or diseases that they fell victim to. Prior to that, people thought that illnesses, etc., were punishment from the gods.

Hippocrates

 

Rather than using chemicals, Hippocrates set about using nature as his pharmacy by using snails and snail slime to treat skin imperfections. We are proud to follow in his footsteps and revert back to what nature provides.

A family-run business, Bragan Skincare has created a range of creams using snail mucin to treat problematic skin naturally and effectively. Nestled in the drumlins of County Monaghan, Ireland, Kieran ran his snail farm and saw first-hand the positive effects that snail mucin had on his own skin.

Extensive research has revealed the benefits of snail mucin (snail secretion) on the skin. Following his research about all thing’s snail, Kieran created sample products and began reaching out to local volunteers.

Volunteers with a range of ages and skin conditions tested the sample creams. The cream proved to be extremely beneficial, providing much-needed treatment and relief for those with skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis and many others.

After a 2-year search, Kieran managed to find a company in Italy that was prepared to come on the journey with him, and the first commercial product was launched in July 2022. Since then, we have helped thousands of people of all ages, from 3 weeks old to those in their nineties. 

We continue to develop new products using the healing capabilities of snail mucin, and we intend to help thousands more using the naturally provided snail mucin that is farmed in Co Monaghan, Ireland.

Description

Our snail face mask contains snail mucin, a mucous substance that snails secrete for hydration, lubrication, and adhesion. In other words, it helps them to move across and stick to surfaces, among other functions.

In skincare, ancient Greece used snail mucin for inflammation and anti-ageing. More recently, snail mucin has picked up steam in the U.S., says Corey L. Hartman, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and founder of Skin Wellness Dermatology in Birmingham, Alabama. Korean beauty products have also been using snail mucin since the 1980’s.

On a chemical level, our snail face mask contains several compounds that offer potential skin care benefits, such as:

Collagen and elastin are natural proteins that form the connective tissues in the body. Collagen promotes skin strength, while elastin provides skin elasticity.

Glycolic acid is an exfoliant often used to remove layers of dead skin and curb hyperpigmentation.
Allantoin is an organic compound that moisturises the skin, has anti-inflammatory effects, and promotes wound healing.
