Atopic Dermatitis is the most common form of skin condition often called eczema. It is known to be a chronic skin issue and usually originates in early childhood via family genetics.
The affected areas get remarkably sensitive and dry. Over 15 million people in the United States, alone, suffer from some form of this skin condition and have had to endure it their entire life.
Symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis
The main symptoms for Atopic Dermatitis are constant itching, scaling appearance on skin, weeping and oozing plaques at the affected areas, and sometimes, adverse immune response issues. If not treated regularly, both with medication and skin care items, the irritated skin can also cause other skin issues and be more susceptible to infections.

Snail Mucin Cosmetics for Atopic Dermatitis
With its moisturizing, protecting and healing properties, snail mucin may be able to mitigate the symptoms of eczema and potentially be able to help repair the skin. Newly released research from our colleagues in Italy dives into more scientific discussion on the subject of healing the skin with properly (ethically) extracted snail slime.
The main active components that occur naturally in our pure snail mucin are:
- Allantoin: moisturizing and healing properties.
- Glycolic acid: delivers an intense exfoliating action.
- Collagen: protein useful for maintaining skin hydration and stability.
- Elastin: protein capable of assisting the natural elasticity of your skin.
- Hyaluronic acid: hydrates your skin
