This snail should be a stripper

Did I just call a snail sexy? Yes, I did. Ewwww! A personal all-time low. Anyhow, what I was trying to get at was the way the snail is moving around the water stream. It’s not unlike the way a stripper undulates around a pole. Fascinating. And so unsettling at the same time. [Buzzfeed]

Snail secretion…ew. If we at The Frisky did not feel a great responsibility to report every beauty secret we discover/investigate/stumble across, we would have left the snail dribble alone and kept down our lunches. Yet, sadly for my stomach, we take our beauty products seriously. I was prepared to laugh off snail secretion face creams as the cream of the bizarre beauty crop, but those pesky peeps at The International Society of Skin Pharmacology Journal wouldn’t let me. Oh yes, those evil scientists cackled evilly as they discovered the regenerative qualities of the snail slime and its beneficial facial effects. The gist of our slimy friend’s beauty success lies in the secretions ability to block out harmful environmental pollution. We might have speed, but we do not have slime that protects us from UV radiation.

To be honest, the article lost me when it started getting into snail immunology, but until my own mental powers failed me, the science sounded plausible enough.
