Snail Serum Korean Skincare…

As soon as the weather begins to warm up and hit the 70’s and 80’s, our skin gets exposed to the sun.

SMD’s Saromae Quintessential Snail Serum is cruelty-free! So, how is it made?


Saromae Snail Serum is something out of this world…just so we are clear!  But how is it collected everyone keeps asking?! Are snails harmed?  Are there actual snails in the serum?  The answer is, No!  Only snail mucin or filtrate…

SMD Cosmetics does not support animal cruelty or animal testing of any kind!  The snails move over a bumpy surface, which stimulates their mucus production.  The mucus is then collected, to be processed.  SMD extracts only the essential and effective elements of the mucus to make their unique formula.

Designed to offer the PERFECT balance of natural ingredients, formulation and viscosity to achieve the optimum results in texture, efficacy and absorption, SMD’s Saromae Quintessential Snail Serum Concentrate features the IDEAL 62% of pure snail filtrate.  The sticky mess of 100% snail mucin is addressed, thereby making it the perfect way to help reduce wrinkles, fine lines and help prevent the appearance of premature age.

Loaded with a many other unique herbal medicinal ingredients, Saromae Quintessential Snail Serum Concentrate is a high-performance, multi-functional serum is designed to do it ALL– deeply hydrate, smooth, repair and brighten skin, while protecting against environmental aggressors, leaving skin softer, glowing, more youthful looking and absolutely stunning.  Safe and non-toxic.

What I love is that the product is long-lasting!!   My jar has lasted me close to a year!  A little goes a long way…so worth it!

SMD Snail Serum…and why it is so amazing!!

SMD makes one of the most amazing, luxurious snail creams out there…but before I talk about why this is Korea’s hot secret to beauty, let me discuss the origins of this snail cream rage!

The use of snail slime to improve skin dates back to ancient Greece, where Hippocrates, the famous physician, reportedly prescribed crushed snails and sour milk as a way to rid the skin of inflammation. In more recent times, the use of snail creams started when Chilean farmers who handled snails for the French market noticed their skin was visibly smoother. Nowadays, it is the secreted slime discovered by these farmers that is harvested to produce snail cream, not crushed up snails.

As a snail protects itself, the slime that is excreted from its body is packed with nutrients like hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, antimicrobial and copper peptides, and proteoglycans. All of these nutrients are already commonly added to beauty products and are thought to provide many benefits to skin.

The science behind snail slime as a viable beauty cream is mostly derived from lab studies where the effects of the slime have been tested on a variety of cell cultures. In these studies, research suggests that snail slime will stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, increase fibronectin protein production, and stimulate increased proliferation of fibroblasts.

But not all snail cream is created equal…and it is not all about how much % of snail mucus is in the actual cream, it’s about how it is filtrated, formulated and what other chemicals are in the cream.  Here at SMD we do not use toxic chemicals or toxic preservatives in our products.  We also have added in some other amazing ancient Asian herbal medicine to our cream to enhance it’s benefits.

Some key ingredients in Saromae Snail Serum Concentrate:

Licorice Root – One of the oldest remedies in history…was recognized in its benefits in brightening of the skin and its ability to even out the skin tone, making it an especially treasured ingredient in beauty rituals.

Forsythia Virissima – can help reduce acne, wrinkles, and facial pigmentation over time.

Cimicifuga Dahurica Root – used topically to treat skin conditions such as acne. It helps to improve the feel and appearance of your skin. Based on it’s intense medicinal use by Native American Indians and it’s reputation as a great cure-all, Cimicifuga appeared in 1820 in the U.S. Pharmacopeia as an anti-inflammatory, sedative and antispasmodic ingredient. It provides soothing and bactericidal properties. This product is recommended for use in anti- blemish creams, purifying face masks, and lotions.

Paeonia Lactiflora Root -is valued for the Paeoniflorin active, which has an antioxidant effect similar to Vitamin E. It also stimulates circulation with overall skin beautifying properties.The botanical prevents lipid peroxidation in the epidermal cells for healthy skin. Its extract has been used medicinally for centuries to boost microcirculation, treat inflammation and relieve pain.
