They say beauty comes with a price and the adage seems to be true around the world.
From urine to snail slime here are weird ingredients you will find in most products used for beauty.
- Human Foreskin
In 2015, Oprah put the power of her name and endorsement behind a Skin Medica antiwrinkle cream with a very interesting special ingredient: human foreskins from circumcised infants.
This is a rejuvenating treatment that hydrates and firms to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven tone, large pores and rough texture.
2. Snail Slime Cream
The mucus secreted by land snails has a powerful antioxidant, which protects them from an atmosphere full of oxygen radicals.
Snail serum has been clinically proven to help maintain the skin as well as improve cell function.
Additionally, it helps avoid excess or abnormal scarring, including acne scarring, counteracting sun damage and preventing premature skin ageing and wrinkles.
It also accelerates the renewal of damaged tissues. And you thought they were only good for French appetizers and sidewalk art.
3. Ground Pig Placenta
In Japan, people line up to drink ground pig placenta. Like menstrual blood, placentas are full of vitamins, nutrients and minerals – everything that an egg or baby feeds on.
4.Bull Sperm Conditioner
Aberdeen Organic Bull Semen Treatment combines the semen of Aberdeen Angus bulls with Katera root to create a protein-rich hair mask that drenches follicles in gobs of moisture.
5. Ewe Placenta
EMK Placental has brewed up an entire range of products from post-natal tissue—including facial masks, eye gels, and hair serums—that celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria and Madonna are rumoured to partake in.
