Benefits of Snail Slime .. wait, what?

When most people think of snails and slime, their first reactions are "yuck!" or "gross!"  However, did you know that snail is a beneficial ingredient in many great skin care products in the world? 

Quote from Michelle Phan's Blog:
"Apparently, the active ingredients found in snail extract have been known to slow premature aging by protecting the skin from harmful elements in the environment. Aside from allowing them to slither along surfaces, a snail's slime is rich in glycolic acid and elastin, which also protects their bodies from bacteria, cuts, and other damaging factors. Creams and products containing snail leftovers are also marketed to smooth skin, treat acne and heal burns because proteins in this sticky substance remove dead cells and helps to restore skin." --- See Her Full Blog Here
