Beauty products from bird poop and whale's vomit!

The glow on your skin symbolizes your health and fitness. There are a host of plants and herbs discovered by our grandmas for skin and hair care which are proven and time-tested. In the modern times, Victoria's secrets help celebrities and cine stars to keep their skin blemish-less and wrinkle free.

Herbal ingredients like guava, peppermint oil, wild cherry, aloe barbabenis, dandelion extract, salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione etc., are added to the skin products to impart anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiseptic and anti irritant properties.

As a result of scientific research and technological advancements certain seemingly bizarre substances like bird poop, snake oil, snail slime, Dracula serum, etc., are used as additives in cosmetics presently.

A New York Spa uses nightingale's poop in a Geisha facial to improve the shine on the skin.

A synthetic version of snake venom prevents unwanted lines and wrinkles. It is also used to keep the hair shiny.

Snail's slime preserves the moisture on the skin.

Whale's vomit known as ambergris works as a fixative perfume base.

Red beetles, boiled, dried and crushed in powder form, serve as a red dye in lipstick and blush products.

    Have a terrific day and weekend. :)
