The Snow Jelly or Hashima, is made from the uterine tubes of female frogs through a difficult and time-consuming process. The frogs are caught and dried and once they are dry enough, the fats surrounding their ovaries and oviducts are peeled and removed. Rich in hormones and lipids, hashima is used as a remedy. The Chinese believe that eating this helps reduces internal heat, detoxifies, moisturises and stimulates skin cells to improve skin condition and provide beautifying effects.
