First, let’s learn about snail secretions..
How does the secretion of snails work on human skin?
The serum secreted by these land snails have a powerful antioxidants which protect them from an atmosphere full of oxygen radicals. When the serum is applied to fibroblasts, it enhances the proliferation and functional capability of these cells. Fibroblasts are responsible for generating all the elements of the skin matrix, including collagen, elastin fibers, glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans. The latter two provide firmness, strength, suppleness, and elasticity for the skin by containing water.

The Product: Nature Republic Snail Solution Set (Skin Booster, Emulsion, and Cream)
The Skin Booster is a toner that has 90% snail secretion. It is used for “Revitalizing & Moisturizing,” with a boosting function that improves damaged skin. It supposedly brightens the skin and reduces wrinkles, and makes the skin look healthy and luminous by providing vitality to distressed skin.
The Emulsion is also for “Revitalizing & Moisturizing” but it contains 80% snail secretion filtrate. It goes on after the Skin Booster and it improves damaged skin while brightening and reducing wrinkles. I don’t know what the need is for this extra step, but it is thicker and more opaque than the Skin Booster. This is also to be applied down the neck as well.
The last step is the Cream which comes in this tub that has no business being as big as it is. There is a smaller tub inside that has the product in it, and there is just a big moat of air around the smaller tub. Anyway, the Cream contains 70% snail secretion filtrate, and it is the last step of this system that I got. It is meant for “Brightening and Wrinkle-Improving.” It improves damaged skin by providing vitality to distressed skin, and brightens and reduces wrinkles as well. (© softly.nothingspaces.com)
