Bave d’Escargot… much nicer in French !

Having lived in France for many years I have eaten my fare share of snails, cooked in lashings of garlic butter, but the thought of snail slime had never before whet my appetite. Until now!

I won’t however be eating it, but rubbing it all over my body!

A company called Innovatouch Cosmetic have a small line of products made from “bave d’escargot” which literally means snail drool…hmmm!

The healing properties of snail drool are well documented and it is the molecule allantoïne that does the trick. The allantoïne, proteins, vitamins, natural antibiotics and collagens found in this drool combined with Aloe and Silicium make these effective anti-age products a lot more appetising than you’d think.
