Hi Sheena, thank you for the question.
There are no specific medical studies that prove the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of the snail gel however there are certain snails that excrete juices that have shown benefit when applied topically to the skin. I am a firm believer in certain ingredients such as alphahydroxy acids, polyhydroxy acids, vitamin A, and vitamin C. these ingredients can be found in NeoStrata which is good value for money. Please phone Genop Healthcare (SA distributors) at (011) 545 6600 to find the closest dispensing doctor. If these prices are still too high you can consider Nivea’s Anti-Ageing Range which can be found at any supermarket.
