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.

How to Use Bragan Snail Mucin-Based Products for Maximum Benefits

In the ever-evolving world of skincare, snail mucin has emerged as a standout ingredient, praised for its hydrating, healing, and anti-aging properties. While it might sound unconventional, this potent secretion offers numerous benefits for various skin types. But how exactly can you incorporate snail mucin-based products into your skincare routine for optimal results? Let’s break it down.

Understanding Snail Mucin

Before diving into the application process, it’s important to understand what makes snail mucin so beneficial. This ingredient comes from nature and is made up of hyaluronic acid, glycoproteins, glycolic acid, allantoin, antioxidants, and proteoglycans. These work together to deeply hydrate the skin, help cells grow back, and protect them from damage from the environment.

Step-by-Step Guide to Using Snail Mucin-Based Products
  1. Start with a Clean Slate
    • Cleanse: Begin your skincare routine with a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. This step ensures that your skin is ready to absorb the beneficial ingredients in your snail mucin products. Opt for a cleanser that suits your skin type—foaming for oily skin, cream-based for dry skin, or a gentle formula for sensitive skin.
  2. Apply Snail Mucin Product
    • Serum: Apply the snail mucin product sparingly. They are formulated to deliver a high concentration of active ingredients directly to your skin. Take a small amount of cream and apply a light covering in circular motions to the area that you wish to treat. Make sure that you do not pull on the skin or rub aggressively. Gently massage into the skin until fully absorbed. You can apply the cream 2/3 times per day and you should see a big improvement within 7–10 days.
  3. Protect Your Skin
    • Sunscreen (Daytime): In the morning, always finish your routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen. UV protection is crucial to prevent sun damage and enhance the anti-aging benefits of snail mucin. Opt for a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 and apply it generously to your face, neck, and any other exposed areas.
  4. Extra Care
    • Sheet Masks: Incorporate snail mucin sheet masks into your routine once or twice a week for an extra boost of hydration and nourishment. These masks can provide immediate plumping and soothing effects, making them perfect for a relaxing skincare ritual.
    • Eye Cream: If you have specific concerns like dark circles or fine lines around the eyes, consider using a snail mucin-infused eye cream. Gently tap the cream around the orbital bone to hydrate and rejuvenate the delicate eye area.
Tips for Maximising Benefits
  • Consistency is Key
    Regular use of snail mucin products is essential to see long-term benefits. Incorporate them into your daily routine.
  • Patch Test
  • Before using snail mucin products all over your face, do a patch test as you would with any new skincare product. This makes it less likely that you will experience negative side effects.
  • Hydrate from Within

: In addition to your skincare routine, drink plenty of water throughout the day. Hydrated skin starts from within and complements the effects of topical treatments.

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.



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.
