Goat placenta is much more common, and doesn't carry with it the stigma of being biohazardous.

Oh, and not to be too contrary, but, it's not a common ingredient, nor is it in many cosmetics.

It's a high end ingredient in aging lotions. Not used in typical cosmetics. It's too pricey, too difficult to process. It's not like you can just mash it up and put it in. lol.

They used to use horse urine and baby's foreskins in skin treatments too.

Whose skin couldn't use that foreskin fresh glow?

Coming soon, ground up kitten eye liner! Their inherent youth and playfulness will add spark to your eyes!
