Do you think your beauty products are your best friends? Then, probably snail slime, bird's guano, placenta and other weird stuff (which you can't even think of) are also your loved ones. Are you thinking, what rubbish am I talking? Ha-ha, well my friends kicked my ass for this but, I'm really concerned for all of us. Let me tell you, what I mean with all this.
Do you have any idea, the daily beauty enhancing products that we use are made up of the weirdest ingredients? The red lipstick you're regularly applying is made up of crushed beetles, or the perfume you spray consists of whale poop. This isn't a joke.
Of course, now, you must be curious to know what else weird in the name of your beauty products which you are using daily. So, let's check it out.
All that glitters is not gold. A fancy term given to a fish scale is 'crystalised guanine' and that's why some of the cosmetics and shampoos advertise shine.
Poop of whales consists of a substance called ambergris. When it comes out of the whale's body, starts floating in the ocean. After some time, it converts into waxy solid that have a sweet odor.
These gooey creatures slime contain 'mucin extract' that has regenerative properties in it and helps in moisturizing the skin.
Cochineal beetles excrete a red chemical called carminic acid. When this acid combines with calcium salts, it forms a natural red dye called carmine.
Bird's poop contains guanine and nitrogen-rich urea that helps in moisturizing the skin and making it glow.
Placenta withdraws hormones such as protein hydrolysate and hyaluronic acid that helps in promoting tissue growth. It also helps in removing wrinkles.
