NeoCutis wants me to put what on my face?!?

Women sure do weird things in the name of beauty.  I mean the things we put on our skin in the hopes of looking younger...  caviar, sperm, gold and snake venom just to name a few.  NeoCutis just might take the cake though, this company uses aborted fetal cells in their skin cream. This of course has some American anti-abortion groups up in arms even though the cells themselves are just created in a laboratory, there are no continuous donations. The cultures used to make neo-Cutis's three products containing fetal skin cells are cloned in a lab from the original donated cells used in research years previously at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland.  The Clinical Studies page on their website states that they are currently performing a series of clinical research studies, in other words they can't give me any proof with pretty pictures that it actually works. At $130 a tube they are going to have to do better than that.  In the meantime, I hear that the mucus from a blind wombat will totally get rid of crow's feet, so I'm off to get me some of that!
