Description

For centuries, humans have put snail slime on their faces. Why? They believed its nutrient-rich properties fought wrinkles, scars and redness. Modern research shows they were right to covet snail slime, and that’s where Simone Sampò comes in.

In fact, it pleasures them. It’s quite possibly the first ever spa for snails.
