The secretion of Cryptomphalus aspersa (SCA), a snail present in the Mediterranean area and South America, has powerful anti-inflammatory mechanisms, thanks to its rich content of proteins and polysaccharides. It was initially tested in patients treated for radiodermatitis, showing excellent results in terms of re-epithelialization. Its regenerative and antioxidant properties have been subsequently studied with important applications in the treatment of photoaging. Basing on these data, we evaluated the regenerative post- peeling activity, the timing of re-epithelialization, the effects post treatment and cosmetic sensation of SCA versus placebo in 20 patients undergoing chemical peeling for acne or photoaging. The results obtained documented: a clear regenerative and restorative post- peeling activity, a reduction of post treatment side effects and a cosmetic acceptability of SCA, confirming its efficacy, safety and tolerability.
