Other key concepts:

  • What is the difference between Snail Extract and Snail Serum?

Snail Extract contains the snail secretion and an important quantity of sterile water. In addition, the traditional way to obtain the snail secretion to make snail extract consists on "bathing" the snails with water. The secretion is then expelled in great quantities, since the snails produce more of it when stressed. While the snails are not harmed, this is not a natural occurrence for them. Therefore, the resulting secretion not only contains additional water (more distilled water will be added later by the lab!), but some natural toxins the snails release during this undesirable bath.

Snail Serum is pure snail secretion, collected very, very slowly as the snails naturally expel it. The process is longer and tedious, but the resulting product has much more potency and purity, passing all its incomparable qualities to the resulting cosmetic.

  • Is there a difference between a plastic jar and a glass one?

Plastic jars are preferred by manufacturers:  there are cheaper, and lighter (which saves a bundle on transportation of big quantities!).  Nevertheless, glass jars are the international standard for a good facial cream.  Glass is not porous, as plastic is.  Therefore, any cream will be kept fresher if stored in a glass jar.

  • My skin blemishes are awful:  As good as Helix Aspersa Muller secretion is for erasing/fading them, will these products really have an effect on such marked wrinkles - stretch marks - scars - keloids - age spots - acne - etc?

Without any doubt, these products will yield an INCREDIBLE improvement.  The key to see prompt, noticeable results is CONSISTENCY IN APPLICATION.  These products need to be applied twice a day, every day.  The snail secretion benefits are cumulative.  Constant, disciplined use of the product is essential!
