Ever wondered what ingredients are added to your cosmetic products? Trust me, you have no idea. Look at the list below. I am sure that many of you will think twice before applying any product after reading this.
1. Crushed Insects
These are the primary ingredient of red lipsticks. The red color appears due to these insects. Check the ingredients in your red lipstick right now. Did you find an ingredient called carmine? In that case, it contains crushed beetles. Keep that in mind the next time you apply that lipstick.
2. Chicken Bones
Every cosmetic product requires a moisturizer. Glucosamine from chicken bones is often used for that purpose.
3. Infant Foreskin
As weird as this one sounds, it is true that infant foreskin is often used in various creams and beauty products.
4. Fish Scales
Ever wondered why nail polishes are so shiny? That is because fish scales are used in nail polishes.
5. Whale Vomit
Ambergris is a common ingredient in perfumes. It is extracted from either vomit or from the inner lining of the stomach of mammals. It helps in keeping the smell of perfume last longer.
6. Slime of Snails
The slime from snails is a valuable ingredient in various luxury facial treatments.
Cholesterol is also used in cosmetic products; since it has oily qualities, it is often used in anti-ageing creams.
