Finally, everything we are told every day by our
customers has a scientific confirmation and especially a proven explanation by
the activity on the cells. A search fails to explain the miraculous results
with snail slime taken from Helix Aspersa muller. Basically, this work
(published by the International Journal of Cosmetic Science and also
very "technical") highlighted with very accurate test in vitro
the following properties of snail slime:
Regenerative propertieswhere the term "regeneration" is supported by precise data and
scientific tests on cell proliferation and cell migration, both significantly
increased after Sun 24-48 hours.
micro-injury, mechanical irritation and sunburn, with high capacity
Reduce skin degeneration from Aging and from the Sun effects, reducing damage
photo-oxidative (free radicals).
Reduce wrinkles and roughness, increase hydration, maintain the
extracellular matrix (ECM) undamaged (fibroblasts that migrate to the
damaged area, assembling new components of ECM such as collagen, elastin and
Increasing the adhesion of human cutaneous keratinocytes
substrate, i.e. increase the bonds induced (both between cells and between
cells and cells substrate) by specific proteins (for example the E-Cadherin =
ECD, ß-Catenin, Vinculin and ß1-Integrin); in
vitro tests showed an increase by 3 times for ECD, 28 times for ß-catenin and
from 3 to 9 times for ß1-Integrin.
Increase the survivalcell
and phosphorylation (increased about 5 times), also due to the increased
production of ß-catenin.
Significantly increase the
presence of ß-catenin pathway within the cell nucleus (where is active for the
whole chain of cellular proliferation) and not in the cytoplasm (where is
degraded); This fact deserves even more extensive studies on the possible
protective role of snail slime on epithelial tumours, due to its ability to
inhibit apoptotic signals.
Don't go finally forgotten the
contents in Allantoin and Glycolic Acid naturally present in the
snail, albeit modest, are still the only natural sources for these two
For the first time have been demonstrated
scientifically snail slime, those properties that our numerous customers always
experience and was also demonstrated the superiority of the efficacy of Helix
Aspersa Muller than snail of species Helix "pomatiae" or
"MAXIMA" larger snails that produce a lot more drool but of much
lower quality and therefore with fewer side effects. Anyone who has tried this
froth compared to our (obtained from Helix aspersa muller) has
immediately noticed the difference, without parameters or scientific tests.
This is just the beginning, we continue with studies
and new products.
