I’m only 19 days into using Benton Snail Bee Steam Cream, and I’m already itching lớn gush about it. I normally like to use a skincare hàng hóa for at least 28 days before I đánh giá it, but, lượt thích the rest of the Benton line, the results have been so dramatic so quickly, I’m having a really a hard time keeping it to lớn myself! This moisturizing cream has already managed to reach HG status for me, và has become part of my official baseline skincare routine.

What is it?

Benton Snail Bee High nội dung Steam Cream ($22) is a moisturizing cream from my favorite Korean skincare company, Benton Cosmetic. The term “steam cream” describes the process by which the cream is made – the idea is that high-temperature steam is injected as the ingredients are being mixed in order to better facilitate the way the ingredients work together. The steam injection process also contributes to the creamy texture of the final product. This cream is said to be good for sensitive skin, and promises to lớn help with acne, dry skin, và oily skin, in addition to whitening/evening skin tone, and reducing the signs of aging.


Ingredients:Snail Secretion Filtrate, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Niacinamide, Stearic Acid, Behenyl Alcohol, Phytosqualene, Human Ogliopeptide-1, Bee Venom, Arbutin, Adenosine, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernal Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Arginine, Carbomer, Urea, Tocopher Leaf Extract, Salix Alba (Willow Bark) Extract, Ulmus Campestris (Elm) Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pilsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract

The notable absence of fillers và stellar skincare actives in this ingredient list has become a hallmark of Benton skincare products. One of the reasons I was excited to lớn try this cream is that I have recently developed a sensitivity lớn certain amounts of Cetyl Alcohol và Cetearyl Alcohol, both fatty alcohols. In their pure form, they’re white, waxy substances. As skincare ingredients, they are found in high amounts in a majority of moisturizing creams because of their emollient & emulsifying properties. Unfortunately, they are also common irritants and acne triggers for many acne prone people, including myself.

Benton Snail Bee High nội dung Steam Cream does not contain Cetyl Alcohol or straight Cetearyl Alcohol. Instead, it uses a combination of Cetearyl Olivate và Sorbitan Olivate. Cetearyl Olivate is a derivative of Cetearyl Alcohol và fatty acids derived from olive oil, while Sorbitan Olivate is derived from Sorbitol và olive oil. While Cetearyl Alcohol is still present as part of the Cetearyl Olivate ingredient, in this form it is much, much milder & far less likely khổng lồ trigger any acne events. In fact, neither Cetearyl Olivate nor Sorbitan Olivate rank at all as acne triggers or irritants according to lớn COSDNA, as opposed to Cetearyl Alcohol, which scores a whopping 4 out of 5 as a potential acne trigger, và a 3 out of 5 as a possible irritant.


Other notable ingredients in this moisturizing cream include:

Snail Secretion Filtrate – This is comprised of 64% snail mucin, which is great news. Snail mucin might still be icky khổng lồ some, but there is no denying the nguồn of the skin-friendly antioxidants, proteins, elastin, & glycolic acids. It’s also antimicrobial, and in addition lớn being shown to effectively promote wound healing in a couple of in-vitro studies, there was a newer study released in April of this year that showed snail secretion lớn be effective when it comes khổng lồ repairing photodamage. It’s especially helpful for acne, overall skin tone, & reducing acne scarring. (Study: Effects of Snail Secretion Filtrate on Photoaged Skin)

Urea – First, let’s get the gross news out of the way: urea is a primary component of urine. But don’t start vomiting yet! The urea contained in skincare products lượt thích this one is actually synthetic, which means there is no pee in this, or any other face cream. Phew! The thing about urea is that it’s actually a fantastic skincare active because of its antimicrobial & water-binding properties. Urea acts as humectant, attracting water khổng lồ the skin & retaining moisture, making it a common ingredient in creams used lớn treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Urea is an effective exfoliant, and additionally, it improves hàng hóa penetration & strengthens the skin barrier, building resistance against potential irritants.

Niacinamide – Hydrating, anti-inflammatory ingredient that has been clinically proven lớn reduce the appearance of wrinkles. (See the study)

Human Ogliopeptide-1 – Often called EGF (an acronym for Epidermal Growth Factor) in skincare products, Ogliopeptides are molecules that are used in medicine to lớn help treat wounds and burns, assisting in the regrowth of skin. They work by increasing cell growth, and in addition to lớn helping with cell and blood vessel growth, they also play a role in collagen and elastin production. I had a hard time locating any studies that are specifically focused on Ogliopeptide-1 (that doesn’t mean they don’t exist – it just means I couldn’t find one), but this is a very interesting study concerning the efficacy of Ogliopeptide-10 (PDF), which showed it khổng lồ effectively stimulate collagen production without any serious side effects.


Bee Venom – The claims surrounding bee venom as a skincare active state that Melittin, a peptide found in the venom, “tricks” your toàn thân into thinking you’ve been stung, causing it to lớn increase collagen production to promote healing. Bee Venom also contains a couple of beneficial enzymes. Phospholipase A2 is an enzyme that is said to lớn assist with the penetration of skincare actives. It works by thinning the cell’s outer membrane, allowing other ingredients lớn penetrate the cell. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that works by increasing the synthesis of hyaluronic acid naturally produced by our skin. There is at least one study that has shown bee venom khổng lồ significantly increase wound healing activity. (Study: Effects of Honeybee Venom Treatment on Animal Skin Wound)

Salix Alba (Willow Bark) Extract– Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is often used as an acne treatment. It is a naturally occurring ingredient, usually derived from willow bark, but also occurs in other sources, such as Aloe. It’s antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, và an exfoliant. Salicylic Acid has been shown in multiple studies khổng lồ improve barrier function and collagen production. It’s best used in concentrations from 0.5% – 2%.


ApplicationI apply a dime-sized (or large pearl sized) amount on my face as my last skincare step in the evening, và as my second lớn last step in the morning (just before my sunscreen).

The Snail Bee High content Steam Cream by Benton is formulated with snail mucin to deeply hydrate skin. (19.4% of Snail Secretion Filtrate)

Bee venom also helps promote collagen production. Steam creams are blended using high temperatures và steam technology, which increases the efficacy of the formula.
