Two things that always get my attention in skin care products are fermented ingredients and snail secretion filtrate. I love both of these in my skin care products and I feel that they do the trick on my skin to make it happy all over. A while ago I was selected for the second round of the Swanicoco Swan Program, and they send me a huge package containing a ton of skin care products, including the Swanicoco Bio Ferment F Fermentation Snail Care Skintoner and Emulsion.
Swanicoco is a Korean brand that stared off its business by creating naturally fermented soaps. Now, they have a huge range of products including skin care and make up products, but still all the products share the same believe in natural ingredients excluding artificial and chemical components. Swanicoco uses grains, fruits, herbs and oriental medicine materials as raw materials for their fermentation. By fermenting the products they can be much more easily absorbed into the skin, help retaining moisture and improve damaged skin. They state that instead of using purified water like in most existing cosmetics, Swanicoco has replaced the water with ferment filtrate. Additionally, pigments, synthetic perfumes, chemical preservatives, alcohol, mineral oil, paraben and benzophenones have been excluded from their products. Oh, and they are also free from animal testing!
The brand name Swanicoco is derived from the word “swan” and the term “coco”. “Swan” referrs to the elegance and feminine aspects of the bird we probably all know. “Coco” refers to the coconut, representing the natural ingredients. In the logo of the brand you will find the word “natural”, which refers to the brand as being a natural cosmetics brand. There is also a peony blossom in the middle of the logo that stands for richness and splendor.
The Swanicoco Bio Ferment F Fermentation Snail Care Skintoner and Emulsion is a perfect basic skin care combination. It is hypo-allergenic, has soothing and calming properties. The combination of fermented ingredients and snail secretion filtrate helps to recover the skin and transit to a new skin care routine. It recovers and provides sufficient moisture to the skin. Snail Secretion filtrate claims to be rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants and thus help our skin to regenerate stimulating the formation of collagen, elastin and dermal components that repair the signs of photoaging. Also, it claims to minimize the damage generated by free radicals that are responsible for premature skin aging (there is a wikipedia entry for snail mucus, too). The snail mucus is not obtained by harming the snails, but it is collected is so-called snail farms. Ferment filtrate is nutrients-rich. It contains many vitamins, amino acids and proteins and helps to improve the moisture level of the skin.
Swanicoco Bio Ferment F Fermentation Snail Care Skintoner
The Swanicoco Bio Ferment F Fermentation Snail Care Skintoner is a hydrating and soothing gel-type toner. It comes in a large bottle containing 120 ml and will last you for quite some time. The hard plastic packaging has the typicxal packaging we are used to from Swanicoco: simple with many information and a kind of medical/science-y design. The toner has a milky color and a floral scent. It absorbs fast though and fells refreshing on the skin. After application the skin feels hydrated and plumped and feels nice upon touch.
The ingredients of the toner are listed below and you can also check the ingredients via Skincarisma.

Apart from snail secretion filtrate and fermented ingredients the toner also contains licorice extract, collagen, hyaluronic acid, ginseng extract, and so many more ingredients worth mentioning!
Swanicoco Bio Ferment F Fermentation Snail Care Emulsion
The Swanicoco Bio Fement F Fermentation Snail Care Emulsion has similar properties as the toner and many of the same ingredients. The two products work perfectly together, and also the emulsion comes in an identical bottle packaging containing 120 ml. You have to look and read what’s on the bottle if you have both. I sometimes grabbed blindly and reached out for the emulsion first, before having used the toner. The emulsion is a light textured cream, which is perfect as daily moisturizer, leaving no greasiness or traces after application. It has the same scent as the toner.
You can find the ingredients listed below and they are also included in Skincarisma:
Water, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Water, Aspergillus/Rice Ferment Filtrate, Snail Secretion Filtrate, Butylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Stearic Acid, Lactobacillus/Bambusa Vulgaris Shoot Extract/Glycyrrhiza Glabra Root Extract/Luffa Cylindrica Fruit Extract/Morus Alba Root Extract/Pueraria Lobata Root Extract Ferment Filtrate, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panax Ginseng Callus Culture Extract, Human Oligopeptide-1, Saccharomyces/Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Saccharomyces/Imperata Cylindrica Root Ferment Extract, Saussurea Involucrata Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polysorbate 60, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin, Ceramide 1, Carbomer, Arginine, Saccharomyces/Lycium Chinense Fruit/Rehmannia Glutinosa Root/Cuscuta Chinensis Fruit/Cistanche Deserticola/Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit/Chrysanthemum Morifolium Fruit/Poria Cocos/ Cinnamomum Cassia Ferment, Rosa Centifolia Flower Oil, Magnolia Kobus Bark Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Thujopsis Dolabrata BRANCH Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract
Also here the ingredients are mainly targeting moisturizing and soothing the skin. The main difference between the toner and the emulsion in my opinion lies in the fermented extracts which are either from Saccharomyces, Lactobacillus, Aspergillus, or Bacillus.
I love how great the Swanicoco Bio Ferment F Fermentation Snail Care Emuslion and Skintoner work together! They both provide moisture and are soothing and therefore perfect for stressed skin. Nevertheless, both products contain so many great ingredients, that they also have properties that support the elasticity and nutrition of the skin. I can imagine that this is perfect for recovering stressed skin and for a transition into a new skin care routine. I also really like the huge packaging contains 120 ml each. This will make sure to last for a while. Unfortunately, both look very similar in their design, so you have to look properly what you are grabbing. My skin worked well with these two products and I didn’t experience any negative reactions. Still, everyone’s skin might react differently, so in case you will be trying out these products, please do a patch test before starting to use it, just to be sure. You can also find Swanicoco products at Beautytap (formerly W2Beauty). The toner and the emulsion retail for 15 US$ right now each.
