Biochemicals in our body may increase or restrain nutrition to malfunctioning cells in the skin and, aggravate rosacea, acne scars, keloid scars, and several hyperpigmentation disorders.
A natural secretion from land snails supplies oxygen and molecules that support the capability of the skin to make structural, regulatory and protective compounds, work at complete capacity, and alleviate or fix those and many other cosmetic skin issues.
In the human body there are specific bio-chemical molecules called "growth factors" that operate to produce new blood vessels throughout embryonic development, brand-new blood vessels after injury, muscle following exercise, and new vessels for collateral blood flow to bypass obstructed vessels.
They likewise dilate blood vessels.
In individuals with skin suffering from acne scars, keloid scars, or from melasma (“the mask of pregnancy”) or other signs of hyperpigmentation, dermatitis or rosacea, and many other skin problems, a blended inflammatory infiltrate of leukocyte and other immune cells is observed in the skin. And “growth factors” are over-expressed in both the affected skin and in the sebaceous glands.
Overexpression of “growth factors” might lead to the provision of too much oxygen and too many nutrients to already malfunctioning cells of the skin and thus exacerbate those skin concerns.
Under stressing conditions caused by impacts from the environment: cold, heat, solar radiation, free radicals, chemical contaminants, pathogens, mishaps that hurt, malnourishing, or immune conditions, the skin loses some of its ability to react, and make structural, regulatory and protective substances (such as collagen, pigments and/or anti-oxidants or antimicrobial peptides) or makes them in lower quantities or greater quantities than those necessary to meet its function.
A great strategy when the skin is not working correctly is to assume it does not have the endogenous factors that it needs to work at complete potential and offer them from the exterior.
Secretions from Helix Aspersa or Cryptomphalus aspersa snails, known as escargots or the modest brown garden snail, contain soluble proteins, peptides, and complex carbohydrate and other molecules.
Among them copper containing pigments are found. They serve in the uptake, transportation and release of oxygen, for oxygenation of tissues.
These land snails are invertebrate animals with skin that is very much like human skin and have glands among their tissues that we do not have. The cells in those glands secrete an immune serum containing molecules that are restorative of the biochemical, structural and regulatory processes in human skin.
When this snail suffers an external insult, for instance a burn or ionizing radiation, and even mechanical injuries, it responds by producing a complex glycoprotein secretion.
Scientists from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York have shown that the secretion regenerates the damaged structures of human skin as well as the animal's skin in a very short period of time.
The serum also protects the snail’s skin from bacterial infections and tumors, because these have never been observed in these snails.
In human skin the serum enhances the morphology and proliferation ability of fibroblasts revealing symptoms of aging (senescence).
Moreover, the serum appears to improve cell performance. Its use can increase the development of collagen, elastic fibers and, hydrating molecules in the skin
The later by providing glycosaminoglycans, including hyaluronic acid. These make up a small portion of the dry weight of the skin, but they can enhance its water volume by 1000-fold. The hydration of the skin because of that is much improved.
It likewise induces the assembly of the fibronectin extracellular matrix, thus aiding with the reordering, movement and migration of fibrous proteins and cells in the skin matrix.
