Foreskin derived beauty products are not new

There has been a hum about Valveta, a substance purported to be the newest anti-aging skin treatment (see below).

Although the concept of using foreskins for cosmetic purposes may seem quite radical, it is not really new. This approach is the basis for a very popular skincare cream known as Neocutis. Neocutis products, first developed for burn patients in Switzerland, contain a variety of growth factors -- all derived from a single group of human foreskin cells. We use Neocutis in our Boca Raton, NYC and New Jersey offices as part of our anti-aging skin care approach.

The basis of Neocutis cream’s healthy skin benefits derives from research I performed several years ago. This research, now published in the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, showed that when women applied this cream to their face for 6 months, aging skin looked healthier and shinier. When biopsies were performed on the treated skin, new healthier collagen was noted to be induced by the foreskin derived growth factors in the cream.

Foreskin derived beauty products may seem radical, maybe even weird. But they are not new and they can make skin look good.
