Not that I'm defending the cosmetic industry--ok, maybe I am because I depend heavily on make-up and skin care products. But the article sounds like these products are a *new* development on the market--if they are on the market, right now it sounds like they are still being proposed, and only in Europe at that.

If and when they are sold, they are products that contain collagen--those age-defying make-ups and such, not your lipsticks or eyeshadows.

So I don't think anyone who likes wearing make-up needs to fear that they are supporitng this industry--for now. And if it does become a reality in the US, it will be easy to find products that don't use Chinese ingredients. Many companies like MAC and Philosophy are quite socially conscious.

Now, cosmetic companies DO use recycled wax from waste treatment plants...but that's something else altogether.

Skin Medica TNS Recovery Complex

CBS NEW YORK
http://cbsnewyork.com/investigates/l...83673407_html/

"What makes the gel really unique is where the engineered human tissue
comes from: newborn babies. Specifically, from discarded foreskins
donated after a boy's circumcision. The foreskin is placed in a
solution that enables them to extract the growth factors..."

"It's not a miracle out of the bottle. I want to make that clear, no
one can turn back the hands of time. The results achieved can be
expensive, $130 a month. Skin Medica is not on store shelves, it's
only available at doctor's offices, and because it's a cosmetic
product, it has not been approved by the FDA. None of these products
have been approved by the FDA, and that means none of the research on
the ointment has been validated."

-------------------------------------------------------

So, I guess the upshot here is that if none of these things bother you
AND you're getting it for $110 a tube (see $130 mentioned above), all
in all it doesn'tr seem like a bad deal. In short, this does appear,
from what I have read, that Skin Medica TNS Recovery Complex is in
fact a legitimate product that is beginning to pick up quite a
following of fans; patients and physicians alike.

I don't wear makeup and I am glad. All this news is disturbing.
