The full healing and repairing powers of snail slime, which is harvested without causing any harm to the snails, was discovered by chance when snail farmers noticed their hands were incredibly soft and smooth while minor cuts healed unusually quickly.

Snails were one of the first animal species to inhabit the Earth. Evidence suggests that they evolved over 600 million years ago.

The ability of snails to heal has been known for centuries: Ancient Romans used snails as the symbol of pharmacies.

Snail slime contains enough glycolic acid to produce a gentle elimination of superficial dead skin cells, and to help promote their replacement with new cells, formed using the stimulus of allantoin.

Some snail mating rituals last almost 3 hours.

Snails are hermaphrodites, producing both sperm and eggs. They mate because they cannot fertilize themselves. All snails are equipped with both a penis and the corresponding receptive organ.

Snail slime is also used to make the skin heal faster, as well as to remove spots and burns.

It also contains antioxidants, proteins, vitamins and glycolic acid. This combination allows it to stimulate collagen and elastin production, and repair damaged human skin. It can also minimize damage caused by free radicals and help reduce the signs of ageing.

Some snails take over an hour to move 50cm.

The biggest of all snails is Syrinx aruanus, a marine species which lives in Australia.

The smallest snail in the world, the dwarf spiral snail (Punctus pygmaeum) is almost 1mm long.

The largest land snail is the Giant African Snail (Achatina fulica) which can grow up to 30 cm.
