Combine a viral skin-care ingredient with the leading science in anti-aging and you get Naderma’s NAD+ Daily Moisturizing Cream ($55), a luxurious moisturizer that supports your skin. Designed to smooth, brighten and hydrate, the combination of snail mucin and NAD+ work to visibly reduce fine lines and inflammation.
I used this moisturizer daily for six weeks, and it’s become my go-to not just to keep my skin hydrated, but to keep it looking smoother and brighter long term.
A staple of TikTok skin care, snail mucin has been speeding up wound healing and providing soft, smooth skin since its effects were discovered in the 1980s. In case you’re worried, the snails are not harmed in the process. In fact, once their mucin is harvested, they go back to the snail farm for a few months to eat and make more slime.
Studies have found snail mucin to be beneficial when applied topically, as it speeds up healing and prevents premature signs of aging.
To turn back the clock, this formula turns to its second star ingredient: NAD+.
A coenzyme naturally present in our skin, NAD+ is responsible for several energy processes in our cells, like DNA repair. Our cells lose NAD+ as we age, and adding more has been found to help manage the effects of age-related conditions. Topically, NAD+ has been shown to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, repair sun damage, and support new collagen development.
Meanwhile, glycerin and coconut oil keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. Vitamin C works to brighten hyperpigmentation while soothing chamomile calms irritated and inflamed skin.
