Beauty Using human foreskin to create facial cream?

  • Published:

From bird poop to toothpaste the beauty industry will stop at nothing.

From bird poop to toothpaste, the billion dollar beauty industry has tried just about everything to promote the cosmetic world. You would think that it would end at the use of live snails to clear acne but no.

Now, beauty scientists have discovered a way of using infant’s foreskin to create very expensive facial creams.

Yup, you read that right.

The foreskins gotten during infant circumcision sell for thousands of dollars per foreskin. It is said to contain fibroblasts that are used to grow and cultivate new cells. Just one foreskin is said to be able to grow these cells for decades.  The facial creams are meant to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and enhance skin tone, texture and firmness.

In fact, Oprah Winfrey endorsed a high end skin care company Skin Medica for their use of foreskin and even got into trouble with (wait for it) Canada Foreskin Awareness Project who were against the use of human flesh for cosmetic products.

But baby foreskin has more than just beauty advantages.

Hospitals are also using it to help treat burn victims, help cover diabetic ulcers and chemical testing instead of using animals.

Well next time you’re busy envying your favorite celebrity’s smooth skin think about foreskins.
