I uh, this story is SOOOOooooo weird that I couldn't pass it up.
Oprah and the skincream made from foreskins
Oprah uses a $150-an-ounce skin cream that’s made with the foreskin of penises.
Canada’s Owensound Suntimes and the UK’s Daily Mail report
that Oprah Winfrey endorses a face cream made from baby foreskins — the
part that is excised when a human male is circumcised.
The billionaire talk show mogul has called SkinMedica’s creams her
“magic fountain of youth” and urged her devoted fans to try it – at $150
an ounce – the cost of SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum
Neonatal fibroblast is tissue grown from the cells of infant human
foreskins, i.e., a piece of human skin is used as a culture to grow
other skin or cells. Neonatal fibroblast is hailed by some researchers
as revolutionizing medical skin care for its use to help heal wounds in
SkinMedica, a Southern California company, claims that the baby foreskin cells also make an unparalleled anti-aging cream.
The San Diego City Beat
reports that SkinMedica hasn’t harvested a foreskin in 20 years. The
company instead grows the cells it needs from a single foreskin sample.
SkinMedica founder Dr Richard Fitzpatrick told the newspaper,
“Initially, there was a misunderstanding and people thought we were
actually grinding up the foreskin. So, there was a lot of snickering and
laughing about people putting this foreskin product on their face.”
OK, I'll say it, IF 'foreskins' make things look or act younger, wouldn't the Viagra people be out of business? And the Cialis people?
And if rubbing foreskins on themselves makes women's skin look younger, some of them would have little baby heads on their shoulders, and they'd never reach menopause given the foreskins that they've...uh...encountered?
This really just sounds like somebody making a fast buck off stupidity.
