Barely two years since it launched in the Philippines, Snailwhite has become nothing short of an online beauty sensation. The Thai brand's promise of a "glass skin glow" bodes so well with everyone obsessed with K-beauty, punctuated by the influence of its pioneer endorser Erich Gonzales, and most recently, Alex Gonzaga. Not even its unusual name, derived from its star ingredient snail secretion filtrate, dulled its shine. In fact, it probably made it even more popular. Because FYI, actual snail goo is widely used in Korean beauty products as a hydrator and healing component—it's been clinically shown to have anti-aging benefits, too!
Now, if you're just as curious about the brand as everyone else seems to be, then you're in luck. Below, we've created the ultimate primer for all things Snailwhite:
The Best-Selling Snailwhite Products:
1. Snailwhite Whipp Soap
The Whipp Soap is Snailwhite's hero product and their number one best-seller in the country. It's marketed as a cleansing bar for the face, infused with micellar foam technology to remove excess dirt and oil. The soap comes with its own foaming net, too, which helps create a generous lather for convenient cleansing that requires no harsh rubbing.

The second best-selling must-have from Snailwhite is the Moisture Facial Cream—a lightweight and fast-absorbing moisturizer that helps heal, brighten, and soothe skin with ingredients like snail secretion filtrate, niacinamide, and centella asiatica.
