Normally, snail mucin is more common, but wild yam mucin? That’s news to me! This brand is relatively new in the market. Their company (CLICKNATURE INC.) was founded in 2019 and they started their journey with sustainable business models by listening to actual customer demands after 10 years of selling various brands of cosmetics. They currently have 7 products on their website focusing on Reishi Mushroom Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment, Wild Yam Mucin, Rice Extract, CICA, and Panthenol. They had kindly sent me two products from the Mucin Yam line which I think would be the best starter products to introduce this brand to you.
‘Vegreen’ is a compound word of vegetable+green. Veganism: We oppose all products and services produced by exploiting animals. Pure and clean: It is made with a safe ingredient. Without prejudice or discrimination: We do our best to ensure that everyone can use and trust our product. The easy-removal label is not sticky and is easy to recycle. The Earth Pack box is made of sugar cane by-product. The Eco-friendly ink is made from soybean oil to reduce environmental pollution and easily decomposes during disposal. We use a biodegradable paper buffer instead of a vinyl buffer which would take a very long time to biodegrade.
Fragrance-Free Nature Mucin Serum
50ml | All Skin Type
It contains 63% mucin from wild yam extract that restores tired skin and improves skin vitality. Panthenol provides deep moisturizing, and skin barrier strengthening Ceramide helps firm and keep your skin off from stress.
Scent: There’s absolutely no smell to this product but it does have a hint of yam scent in it.
Texture: It’s runny but a teeny bit slimy thanks to the mucin. It spreads easily and also gets absorbed very quickly.

VEGREEN’s Mucin Cream with mild ingredients is quickly absorbed, providing moisture and nutrition and locking them in.
- Quickly absorbed into the skin
- Extracted from wild yam root

Scent: There is a slight sweet scent from the yam and it’s very faint.
Texture: It is a light cream-based texture with easy spreadability and quick absorption
Wild Yam Mucin (Phyto Mucin) is a relatively uncommon ingredient that is a great substitute for snail mucin when it comes to mucin-based products. It has an EWG Score of 1 and it helps to enhance dry/damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness. It is also used for delaying wrinkles and sagginess, reducing sensitivity, preventing the loss of collagen, keeping the skin supple and bouncy, and helping the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. In the meantime, it has anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties although there is still limited research on the wild yam mucin.
The Vegreen Nature Mucin products have at least 50% wild yam mucin in them. I have been using them for quite a while and honestly, it is significantly gentle on the skin. Snail mucin often feels very sticky on the skin, and it tends to leave a little irritating or suffocating residue. Wild yam mucin, on the other hand, is much lighter overall. Whilst they both have somewhat similar functions, I can tell that wild yam mucin is much better accepted for my skin. Once applied, they are absorbed into the skin quickly and do not have a remaining sticky residue.
The products are very gentle in nature. So, of course, the results are not too significant but it was evident that they did help with my skin to a certain level. It did help to hydrate my skin and gave it a slightly supple effect. My neck has three patches of eczema triggers which happens to be triggered before I started using these products. When applied to the neck eczema patches, the products helped to soothe the skin a bit. The skin definitely did not feel suffocated or irritated. At the same time, my skin became less ‘angry’ and easier to handle. The products also pair well with other boosters such as Niacinamide and Vitamin C. Though the serum itself already has some niacinamide and CICA whilst the cream has arginine, albeit the level of content is not enough to show obvious outcomes.
Not only that the ingredients are cruelty-free and vegan, but they also used sustainable packaging which is another bonus. Easy-removable labels, sugar cane by-product-based earth pack boxes, biodegradable paper bugger, and ink made from soybean oil are all being used. My biggest praise to the brand is the braille codes embedded onto the packaging.
Overall, the two products are pretty decently well-curated and I would recommend them to those who are practicing vegan and/or have sensitive skin to try. The ingredient lists are relatively clean and they have good purposes as well. So, if you’re interested, Vegreen ships worldwide, and each product are below $20.
