As a result of FSD Pharma’s failure to comply with a Cease-and-Desist letter sent by GBB on April 14 th, 2023, the Company has subsequently filed a $53 million complaint for material breach of a mutual nondisclosure agreement and trade secret misappropriation. Filed on May 1 st, 2023, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, the complaint alleges that after seven months of exploring a business opportunity of mutual interest and benefit revolving around GBB’s blood alcohol detoxification drink, FSD Pharma publicly announced the misappropriation of GBB’s trade secrets to current and prospective investors in one of its press releases. In the press release, FSD Pharma discussed the launch of a new research and development program targeting unmet medical needs for alcohol misuse and deliberately omitted the underlying misappropriation. GBB’s lawsuit alleges that FSD Pharma used GBB’s proprietary and confidential material to raise capital, persuade iconic entrepreneurs to join its advisory board, and drive up the price of FSD Pharma’s publicly traded stock. The Company is seeking compensatory and punitive damages as well as an injunction against FSD Pharma preventing further unlawful disclosure and use of the Company’s trade secrets. The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida under the name GBB DRINK LAB, INC. v. FSD BIOSCIENCES INC. with case number: 0:23-cv-60800-AHS.

Can Someone Explain the Snail Secretion Skincare Craze?

Caracol Natural Skincare

Caracol Natural Skincare, NEW to the US, is a natural skincare brand that uses snail secretion as the key ingredient. Steeped in tradition, this Chilean based family-owned skincare brand has combined Chilean ancient medicine with modern technology and is now available in the US on AMAZON. Founded in 2006, Caracol Natural is a beautiful story of people in harmony with nature, with high admiration for Chilean and global ancestral medicine, and with the conviction that skincare with natural eco-friendly ingredients, along with premium actives, can offer better-faster-stronger results. The use of snail secretion (also known as snail mucin) in cosmetics can be traced back to ancient Greece, where Hippocrates reportedly prescribed snails for skin inflammation. In the 20th century, snail farmers in Chile noticed that their hands became softer and smoother after handling snails, which led to the development of snail-based creams for hand care. The use of snail secretion in skincare products again gained popularity in the 1990s, when a group of Chilean farmers developed a snail cream that became a best-seller in Korea. Since then, snail secretion has been incorporated into a wide range of skincare products, including creams, serums, masks, and lotions. One of the most interesting aspects of snail secretion is its ability to improve skin health in multiple ways. Snail secretion is a complex mixture of compounds, including hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, allantoin, antioxidants, and peptides, that can work together to provide a range of benefits for the skin. Another interesting aspect of snail secretion is that it is a natural ingredient that is sustainably sourced. Snail farming is a relatively low-impact agricultural practice that doesn't require large amounts of water or land, making it an environmentally friendly option. Here are some of the main benefits of snail secretion: Hydration: Snail secretion contains hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and allantoin, which help to hydrate and moisturize the skin. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leave the skin looking plump and supple. Anti-aging: Snail secretion contains antioxidants, peptides, and other compounds that can help to reduce the signs of aging. It may help to improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of dark spots, and improve skin texture. Healing: Allantoin, a compound found in snail secretion, has been shown to have wound-healing properties. It may help to reduce inflammation, speed up the healing process, and reduce the risk of scarring. Soothing: Snail secretion has a soothing effect on the skin, which can help to reduce redness and irritation. This makes it particularly beneficial for people with sensitive skin. Brightening: Snail secretion contains glycolic acid, which can help to brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. The Caracol Natural lineup includes: The Gentle Cleanser - $22.99 The Gentle Cleanser Facial Foam Expert gently removes impurities while respecting your natural skin barrier. This gentle face wash formula includes Snail Secretion Filtrate plus 8 Clearing Vegetal Extracts like Nettle, Aloe Vera, Sage and Rosemary that helps restore skin balance. Our formula is fitter for sensitive, delicate, dry, flaky, worn, dull, sallow skin, nevertheless is recommended for balancing oily skin and suitable for all skin types The Eye Contour Serum - $32.99 The Eye Contour Serum hydrates, moisturizes, refreshes and restores the healthy appearance of the delicate skin around the eye. It helps to depuff, reduce dark circles and sagginess, lessen oxidative stress, minimize and prevent fine lines and crow's feet. Our Eye Contour Serum helps to brighten, firm, plump, lift, soothe and smooth skin to sustain and recover a radiant, lively and healthier look. The Gentle Serum - $35.99 The Premium Gentle Serum is designed to restore and maintain firmer, denser, flexible, healthier, radiant and bouncier skin. Our Skin Care Gentle Serum for Face and Neck helps subside fine lines, wrinkles, sagginess and dullness. It lessens oxidative stress, it hydrates, moisturizes, softens, calms, plumps, and boosts skin wellbeing, bestowing a beautiful and youthful complexion. Texture Reform Cream - $32.99 The Texture Reform Cream feels soft, silky, light, cool and fresh; it moisturizes and hydrates efficiently without leaving a greasy feeling; it appeals to anyone grease-averse. It helps to brighten up dull and lackluster skin, care for the balance of normal to oily skin, sensitized and acne prone skin (it is not medicinal), lessen oxidative stress, minimize and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, keep in check aging and strengthen the skin barrier.
