The cat litter I use is the cheapest non clump forming gritty type but it also has small water absorbing gel bits.  I guess it works just like egg shells but is more readily available. So far have had really good results and it seems to stay in place really well even when  it rains and so I don't have to top it up very often.

I use new cat litter and it seems to do the job, forming a barrier that slugs and snails dont cross. Its cheap and safe! Only thing is I dont know if its ok to use around food crops such as runner beans, maybe someone can tell me.
