Wild yam containing the nutrition and fertility of the land
“Yam,” which grows in East Asian countries such as Korea,
China, and Japan, is a vine plant that was used as a medicine or eaten as a substitute
for staple food when famine was severe.
It is said that a king of the Sui Dynasty in China knew the efficacy of
“yam” and made the people call it “mountain medicine.”
Particularly, it is also nicknamed “eel from the mountain”
because of its excellent medicinal properties.
“Mucin,” a natural ingredient contained in “Yam,”
also plays a role in making the viscosity of mucus secreted by our bodies.
When mucin is applied to the skin, it has the effect of filling the gaps
in collagen in the dermal layer of the skin,
so it maintains elasticity and moisture of the skin
and brightens the skin with a whitening effect.
It also helps to strengthen the skin barrier by retaining moisture,
which is because of mucin, the main ingredient of snail cream.
Vegetable mucin keeps the skin hydrated
with its moisture-retaining power.
