January Jones ate her placenta but would she try a placenta facial or hair treatment?
Ever since Mad Men star January Jones announced that she consumed her own placenta after giving birth to her son, the world has been abuzz with discussion about uses for afterbirth.
Now it seems this miracle organ, that connects the developing foetus to the uterine wall, is taking the beauty world by storm.
The Daily Mail has reported there has been an increase in the amount of beauty products featuring placenta extract, which claims to have anti-aging effects and rejuvenates body cells.
One of the latest fads to hit Hollywood includes facials using extracts of animal placenta, with celebs such as Victoria Beckham reportedly indulging in the £320-a-time cosmetic treatments.
Another beauty trend is placenta shampoo, which promises to ‘nourish your dull, frizzy hair’ and ‘restore life and luster.’
Here at TB HQ we’re not sure this birth of beauty trends will take off. Would you be brave enough to try one of these placenta-based brands?
