    Cosmetics firm targets UK market ·
    Lack of regulation puts users at risk

    A Chinese cosmetics company is using skin harvested from the corpses of executed convicts to develop beauty products for sale in Europe, an investigation by the Guardian has discovered.
    Agents for the firm have told would-be customers it is developing collagen for lip and wrinkle treatments from skin taken from prisoners after they have been shot. The agents say some of the company's products have been exported to the UK, and that the use of skin from condemned convicts is "traditional" and nothing to "make such a big fuss about".

    YUK!

    Considering the source, this may not be true at all , but if it is...

    I'd rather be wrinkled. ;)

    poncho,

    This doesn't sound believeable and I'm very skeptical.

    But, then who would have imagined lampshades from the skin of slaughtered Jews?

    Either way I'm with Carpro. Wrinkles don't seem like that big of a deal now.
