Oprah and the skincream made from foreskins

File this in the Weird News folder.
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 (below).

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 new ways.

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.”
That hasn’t stopped the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (CFAP), a Vancouver anti-circumcision group, from protesting Oprah’s endorsement of SkinMedica.

Glen Callender, founder of CFAP, says it’s hypocritical of Winfrey to speak out against female genital mutilation, while saying it’s all right to use a face cream made from foreskins from circumcised infant males: “Imagine how Oprah would respond if a skin cream for men went on the market that was made from parts of the genitalia of little girls.”
I have one word for Oprah’s endorsement of SkinMedica:
Ewwwwww
I wonder how SkinMedica obtained that piece of baby foreskin?

I’m in the preventive stage since I’m not quite old enough for wrinkles, and I love Aveeno brand facial moisturizers with SPF 30.

Only a retard would compare male circumcision to female genital mutilation. It’s usually selfish men who think only the man is supposed to enjoy sex.

This news item is hard to swallow unless one supposes that the users were used to swallowing such material.

Ewww… And I am a licensed esthetician/skin therapist. Just disgusting! Why do people insist on slathering their skin in the most disgusting of chemicals or human/animal body parts in hopes of better appearnaces?!?! Trust me I can recommend many holistic or organic approaches that use spices, plants, oils, etc. that will be better than foreskin. Now I am reminded of the Niptuck episodes with facial tretments made from semen. And then I have to ask is this sanitary or safe because in my profession it runs close to the health industry on sanitation laws/requirements. Don’t get me started on the… Read more »

Dear Eo:
To answer yr question, “I wonder how SkinMedica obtained that piece of baby foreskin?” I can only say this: If you have to ask, then you don’t want to know! By the way, do readers know that the ‘correct’ way to perform male circumcision on a Jew is for the mohel to place the penis in his mouth and BITE off the foreskin?
If you think I’m making this up, please go to Wikipedia or another trusted source. Here is a Jewish site: https://www.come-and-hear.com/editor/br_4.html

Oprah is flat ugly in that picture. She is not a good advertisement for the product. I think the one who should receive awards and accolades is her make up artist. When I see her on TV I am amazed at his work. He is a genius. Oprah really looks like the character she played in The Color Purple.

She has always looked like droopy to me. Her makeup artist indeed should be given a grammy award for his work.

If this product actually works, it is a pact with the devil. To mutilate an infant’s body and use it to prevent aging is a horrific and selfish act of monumental proportions. Hasn’t she ever seen the movie, Death Becomes Her….https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Becomes_Her . Next we will hear that she is killing baby seals because she believes the fur looks better on her body than the being it was born on.
