Some historical notes: the discovery of snail slime
In 1995 the first cream based on snail slime was born in France.
In a farm for food use, the heliciculture workers realized that their hands always remained soft and that any cuts healed quickly without incurring infections or scars.
After 15 years of research on the basis of this discovery, Elicina® was born, the first snail slime cream for tissue regeneration purposes.
Research on snail mucopolysaccharide, commonly called “slime”, brought to light the components present in it:
- glycolic acid
studying its usefulness for the snail, the following functions were identified:
PROTECTION AND HYDRATION
the drool allowed the snail’s foot to remain hydrated at all times, preventing the drying of the soft tissues in order to prevent injuries due to continuous rubbing on rough and irregular surfaces.
PRESENCE OF REGENERATING and ANTIMICROBIAL SUBSTANCES
to any damage to the foot, it was noted the ability of the snail to increase the secretion of mucus and to change its primary constitution, as a reaction to the lesion it produced antimicrobial substances and molecules that stimulated the natural process of regeneration of the cells of the damaged tissues.
LUBRICATION AND INSULATION
the thin film produced by the snail isolated the foot from the ground thus forming a sort of protective shield regulating the secretions of the pores.
