The search for an effective scar treatment option has been around since the beginning of time. Many different products, both natural and man-made, have been marketed as a panacea for acne scars, burns, surgical scars and even stretch marks.

Stretch marks are a big deal because anyone can develop them, no matter what your state of health is. Yo-yo dieters, teenagers, pregnant women and body builders are all susceptible to get stretch marks. So, is there a cure for these annoying marks?

In this article we will compare two natural substances that have been used for the treatment of skin problems: Vitamin E and snail serum derived from the Helix aspersa. Both of these substances come from natural sources, but there are some differences in their performance that you should be aware of.

Vitamin E

For many years, Vitamin E has been the most used substance for the treatment of every kind of skin lesion you can think of. Those who have used Vitamin E say it can speed up wound healing and improve the cosmetic result of burns and other lesions. Medical professionals even recommend it for their burn patients and patients recovering from surgery.

There are even some reports that claim that Vitamin E can get rid of stretch marks.

Snail Serum Extracted from the Helix Aspersa

Snail serum is a newly found natural substance that has been flagged as the new cure all of skin problems. This serum is derived from the common garden snail (scientific name: Helix aspersa). This small creature has been cultivated for centuries as a food source.

Recently, it has gained popularity as the chief ingredient in skin creams and stretch mark creams. This substance is hypoallergenic and is so gentle it can be used by everyone no matter their skin type.

Vitamin E compared to Snail Serum

According to clinical reports, Vitamin E isn't the wonder cure it was thought to be. A medical trial conducted on fifteen volunteers showed that Vitamin E did not improve the appearance of surgical scars and sometimes made them worse. In fact, there was a 33% incidence of contact dermatitis caused by the application of Vitamin E.

If we consider that this medical trial was conducted on new scars, we can only assume the Vitamin E would have the same results on older scars like stretch marks.

In contrast, snail serum actually does improve the appearance of photoaging skin and dermatitis caused by skin radiation related with cancer treatment. It regenerates damaged tissues and strengthens fragile skin. Clinical trials back up the claims of heliciculture employees: snail serum works.

Its strengthening properties may help remove stretch marks, but it will definitely help prevent them. These trials have given us the confidence to say that snail serum is better than Vitamin for the treatment of skin problems, and this is why we have added it to our line of skincare products.
