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).
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:
I wonder how SkinMedica obtained that piece of baby foreskin?
