Great Ingredients. No Fillers.
Why water down a serum with boring fillers when we can give it some nutrient-rich Fermented Sea Kelp or delicious Avocado Oil instead? Our products have star ingredients at known, useful concentrations, so there's no need to guess, and every ingredient serves a purpose.
Through our Snail Mail program, we are constantly testing new ingredients, such as Donkey Milk and Snail Secretion Extract. Only those prototypes that are beloved by the testers get considered for our lineup.
Handmade & Made Fresh.
We make all of our products in micro batches, which allows us to effectively use powerhouse ingredients that have shorter shelf lives such as Ceramides to restore your skin's barrier, or Borage Seed Oil which has the highest amounts of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in seed oils.
Our ideas for products all come from the need to fill a gap. How do we know if a product has enough niacinamide? Why are all hanbang (Traditional Oriental Herbal Medicine) products so heavy and heavily fragranced?
From those questions, we created Shark Sauce (which has 5% Niacinamide) and Snowbang Essence (which has over two dozen botanical extracts, but is featherlight and the scent comes only from the extracts themselves). We are constantly developing new answers through our R&D program, Snail Mail.
