Shiseido sells a line of shampoo and body washes in Japan that touts “mother’s milk” as a component. Ew! Do these Shiseido products really have breast milk in them? Turns out they don’t (phew), but rather, the beauty company is trying to sell “the concept of mother’s milk,” which apparently means pulling nutrients from other sources that also happen to be found in breast milk.
So, uh, isn’t that still kind of strange? The idea of getting the benefit of mother’s milk (even if it isn’t the real thing)? Let’s hope this isn’t the beginning of an uncomfortable trend—breast milk for beauty products. [Inventor Spot]
