Holy Snail Water

  • *** Holy Snail Water now comes in two versions:  One features the original Phenoxyethanol/Benzoic Acid/Dehydroacetic Acid, and the new version comes with our favorite preservative, parabens!  Please note that the smell that some users noticed in the original HSW is due to the acids in the preservative system, and this is eliminated in the parabens version!

    Holy Snail Water is a hydrating serum that contains 5% Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and 3% N-Acetyl Glucosamine, which work together synergistically to fight hyperpigmentation.

    Holy Snail Water was created to be an alternative to our Shark Sauce, due to popular demand as some customers have allergies to the sea kelp, hyaluronic acid, or other ingredients found there.  To be the shop's eponymous product though, it has to be more than just an alternative.  It has to be amazing on its own.  So in it, we have put hydrating humectants such as  Aloe Vera JuiceGluconolactone , and  Sodium PCA, brightening and soothing extracts such as  Ginseng and  Horse Chestnut, and, of course,  Snail Mucin Extract.

    Please note that while Holy Snail Water is formulated without parabens, we strongly believe that parabens are a safe and effective class of preservatives, and we will continue to use them in our current and future products where they are appropriate.
