Function – Skin elasticity, Supply Moisture
Bird’s nest dates back to traditional Chinese skincare and medicine, where it was documented to heal infections and help maintain youthful skin. Nowadays, it’s included in products as “swiftlet nest extract,” likely just a cleansed, powder version. The components of this extract are shown to stimulate cell regrowth, wound healing, and improve the skin barrier. This in turn affects skin elasticity, water loss, and ultimately, suppleness. To put it simply, bird’s nest is for skin texture and anti-aging.
– SNP bird’s nest is an actual bird’s nest, but not the twigs-and-sticks kind. It’s saliva. It’s saliva from the swiftlet bird. Their saliva is hard and cement-like, and the birds build their nests with it.
