It is the perfect thing if you want to slow down the ageing process to a snail’s pace.
Slime harvested from the creatures is the key ingredient in new range of anti-ageing products.
The makers claim they can make users appear six years younger in just four weeks.
Following the success of a Snail Gel face and body cream, manufacturers are now releasing a wider range of products backed by a £600,000 marketing campaign.
The campaign will be fronted by the singer turned model – Louise Redknapp – while it is also understood to be used by A list celebrities such as Katie Holmes and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts.
The slime is a key ingredient in products devised by the Dr Organic range available exclusively through Holland & Barrett.
The products contain a cocktail of proteins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid which removes dead cells, reduces inflammation and helps skin retain moisture.
The benefits for human skin were discovered by Chilean snail farmers who noticed their skin healed quickly without scarring when they handled the creatures which were being exported to France.
