    As squeamish as I can be about certain things, nothing in this list bothered me at all.

      That's because I didn't post the pictures of human placenta. Not something I want to search on ever again.

      And look on youtube.com for more bull semen collection videos.

      I think you'll be bothered a little more. 😉

        Well, see, I have seen human placenta, as I was present at the birth of my sister's first child. I also worked with animals and well… bull semen collection is probably one of the least disturbing procedures I have ever witnessed or been a part of.

        That's not to say that this was not a good list. 😉

        Why would an adult be bothered by a placenta? I can see a 12-year-old being squeamish, but most adults have either given birth or been there during a birth and we're not squealing 12 year olds.

        I’m still not bothered…

        Placenta…disgusting, something to forget about? You know that a lot of women EAT their own placenta, right? Google THAT.
        I find them incredibly fascinating and not disgusting in the least!

    I thought ambergris was outlawed by the endangered species act in the US.

    After reading this, I offer this information: At least two countries, the U.K. and Australia, are moving to ban products containing synthetic food & beverage dyes thought to cause problems in children, including symptoms of ADHD, plus other health concerns in adolescents and adults.

    One U.S. company, a Minnesota firm, has developed an all-natural, non-GM alternative to the petroleum-based dyes that for years have been used in foods, beverages, cosmetics and other products we put on or in our bodies.

    High in antioxidants, this new product, now catching the eye of large U.S. food/beverage manufacturers, is derived from a specially developed 'purple' corn hybrid. Once the natural dyes are extracted, the starches, proteins and oils in the corn are sustained for continued use along the food chain. To learn more, go to http://www.suntava.com.

    If you are going to use bull semen, or any of these things that have to actually be made into a drug to be useful? Go ahead and pay your "plastic dr" to give you a shot of something… just slathering it on your skin is not going to do very much at all. Ambergris is whale vomit that is rare and expensive. Perfumes are actually scented with this stuff…. Women in Asia eat ground up pearls for their complexion. Look at what you eat and drink if you put garbage in, you will get garbage out. I love makeup but there is options out there, just be aware of what you are using.

    The only ones on the list should bother anyone are the ones that cause suffering. There is just nothing sexy about suffering. I wouldn't drown a beetle for vanity. And who knows how they harvest the contents of a sperm whale's digestive system?

    But the one that takes the cake(ed on makeup) is the infant foreskin face de-wrinkling creme. No baby boy ever donated his foreskin. The foreskin includes over half the male pleasure-receptive nerve endings and provides an exquisite frictionless mode of stimulation exactly like a woman's hood does.

    Infancy is the worst time to circumcise. Just Google "circumcision damage" to see horrid cosmetic and functional outcomes of infant circumcision that don't manifest until puberty.

    No national medical association of doctors on earth (not even Israel's) endorses routine circumcision.

    Foreskin feels REALLY good. HIS body, HIS decision.

      Well said. I’d rather look older than dirt than have babies lose such an important part of their bodies! Everyone deserves the right to genital integrity.

      The reasoning behind circumcision is so halfassed and contrived, yet most Americans still do it to their boys. I mean otherwise intelligent and successful people doing it because it “look better” or “you can’t have him wondering why his doesn’t look like dads” – as if kids and dads are always comparing penises…

    Cosmetics are clearly unnecessary and are produced by a massive and wasteful industry. We can choose to change our cultural values. After all, Natural is Green.

    This is nothing. Want to be really shocked? Go explore what the FDA says is 'safe' to put into the food you eat every day.

    seriously, EVERYONE reading this should be horrified that baby boys are being subjected to genital mutilation and to think these sickos then turn around and profit from this loss of a functionally important body part is beyond despicable, it’s criminal!

    learn the truth search google: circumcision damage; doctors opposing circumcision; nocirc DOT org; David Reimer; botched circumcision; intersex documentary; beyondthebris DOT com

    Waste Vegetable Oil can be used for so many things from feedstock, to biodiesel to cosmetic supplies. Recycling these days is about more than just protecting the planet, its good business sense.

    Is it why some ladies has persistance pain during menstruation? Since the Human placenta has the contraction effect, if someone stopped using lotion made out of human placenta,will dysmenorrhea stop? Plse help.

    the worst thing they used is foreskin, because that is theft. There are some serious ethical questions raised in this harvesting of babies foreskin. I feel something was stole from me, so oprah and barbara can promote facial cream for rich middle aged women, who are probably circumcising their sons. these women will never look beautiful because beauty comes from within and creams cannot make up for any of it. they will realize it before it’s too late, what they have done and are doing, or else they will have to pay

    Just be conscious of the products your use. Cosmetics are like any industry, there are going to be aspects of it that are not necessarily going to be pleasing or even humane. Just do your research into brands that are pure, safe, vegan certified, etc and check your ingredients. If you’re not sure what an ingredient is, look into it. What you put on your skin does go to your bloodstream. So do your homework, and then make your choices for yourself as to what you put on your skin.

    How come there is no proof or mentions of any brands? Are these ingredients in drug store products? This sounds a lot like what you can find in chinese and other asian factories.

      Skin Medica, and HydraFacial, a facial treatment that uses baby foreskin to fight acne, treat hyper- pigmentation and reduce wrinkles. … criticism for endorsing a face creamderived from human foreskin.

    How do we know for sure you’re not making this up? I mean I am a adolescent and I’m very worried. I just want to know if you are telling the truth so that I can believe you. And all makeups are not made out of this stuff. Just some of it is.

      Yes, it is true. Just Google it and you will see.

    Male circumcision = female genital mutilation.

    That sound too strong a statement? Take the time to read the following, rather than merely dismissing it out of hand.

    Oh my goodness where is humanity going…… because of money we have loss the value of life….Any way is it really important for as to put on these things just for some sick peoples definition of beauty. I just don’t understand why we humans cant accept nature and what it brings.

      Yes we do. Hence buying only vegan and cruelty free products.
