Do you allantoin? It's a powerful natural active you can find in snail slime and very often in cosmetic products. Where does it come from? What are its properties? We tell you everything! 

Allantoin: what is it?

Allantoin is nature originated active. This is the result of uric acid oxidation. Naturally found in snail slime but also in cereals and in a plant called comfrey. Not that yummy, but you can also find allantoin in urine and in the amniotic fluid of many mammals, excepts big primates.

Allantoin: the properties

Skin looks unified and dark spots or even acne scars fade away. This natural active is also used as a treatment for burns and wounds. It soothes the skin by balancing the inflammatory process. Allantoin has also soothing and anti-irritating properties, it fits sensitive, dry and irritated skin. Moreover, it deeply hydrates the epidermis by increasing the water retention.

Many companies choose synthetic over natural allantoin but WE, Caracol Skincare chose to extract allantoin from snail slime. As we own our laboratory in Chile that hand-extract the slime from wild snails. Of course, we release them in the wild so they can live happily ever after. We do know the importance of respecting every animal even the very small ones. The mucin is then purified and add to our Cremes and blended with other natural ingredients.
