New Skincare Craze Vavelta Gives A Whole New Meaning To "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" – Be Warned

I’ve covered cutting off pinky toes to fit your shoes better and I’ve asked if you’d devein your hands, but this time I’m warning you, if you’re eating or playing with your toddler, stop now.

According to the Daily Mail UK, the new skincare craze that is sweeping England is a product called Vavelta. The treatment appears to rejuvenate and restructure older and/or damaged skin from the inside out by actually causing lower layers of cells in the skin to completely rejuvenate. It’s also supposed to be a permanent solution, unlike Botox. Even though a vial of the stuff can run you almost $1500, the women in the trial are showing life-altering results.

The kicker: the active ingredients are little cells called fibroblasts, which are derived from baby foreskins donated by mothers at some hospital in the U.S. after routine circumcisions. See, I told you to quit eating.

We’re not trying to judge, but don’t the ingredients kind of make you say, “Eww”? What ever happened to a good old fashioned chemical peel? This Boots No. 7 Glycolic Peel works like gangbusters and at $24 is slightly more wallet-friendly (and decidely less cringe-worthy).

We ask you – what is the line you’ll draw for skincare ingredients? Is this stuff just wrong or are we just too squeamish? Let us know in the comments section.
