Default Top 10 Products You Didnít Knw Are Used in Cosmetics

Make-up and common cosmetics have been around for centuries. In the olden days cosmetics were at times, very dangerous, and could be fatal. Egyptian women would use kohl as a method to line and darken the eyes. Women throughout the 19th century would often use lead oxide and carbonate as a way to create whiter skin. Others used belladonna in their eyes in order to create a sparkle.
While cosmetics are meant to enhance beauty and make one prettier, the ingredients used arenít always the prettiest. Some of these are very common while others are used far and between. However, itís safe to say that these ingredients arenít ones youíd probably think are in your cosmetics bag.
10. Waste cooking oil



Scientists and cosmetic lines have found out that by using waste cooking oil, a certain type of surfactant is created which is then put into cosmetics. So whatís it do to make you a little bit prettier? Supposedly, the surfactant helps to regenerate damaged skin. Many of these companies will get the waste oil from fast food restaurants and cafťs. A little gross but if you can put something to good use, do it

9. Oleoresin Capsicum


If youíre a police officer or someone who requires some painful self-defense, you may know what Oleoresin Capsicum is. Better known as ďOC sprayĒ or just ďpepper spray,Ē this substance is widely used in sprays by police men, law enforcement, and often hikers who may encounter dangerous animals. Itís definitely known for being painful, and even able to cause temporary blindness when it makes contact with the eye. However, the substance, usually extracted as capsaicin from chilies, is also used in cosmetics. If youíve ever used a lipstick or lipgloss, or some other cosmetic that has a ďtinglyĒ feel to it, you can rest assured that itís the oleoresin capsicum giving you that feeling. And no, shoving your lipstick in the eye of your ex boyfriend wonít keep him away.

8. Chicken bone marrow


Chicken bone marrow is just one of the many animal parts used in the making of cosmetics. It is said that chicken bone marrow is full of glucosamine, which is great to use on the skin as it promotes new healthy growth for a youthful look. Chicken bone marrow is also considered to be an anti-inflammatory. Youíd more than likely find this product in moisturizers as well as face creams.

7. Fish scales


Ever used any type of cosmetic that had a shimmer to it? Maybe lotion, nail polish, or lipstick? If you have, that lovely shimmer you wore more than likely came from the use of fish scales. Pearlescence, as itís called, is the silver shiny substance found in fish scales that is often used in cosmetics to give them that glow and shimmer. Herring is mainly used to obtain the pearlescence and today it is one of the most supplemented fish by-products in the world.

6. Cochineal dye


While youíre not likely to find cochineal dye listed as an ingredient in your cosmetics, you just may find carmine, cochineal, or carminic acid. If you find any of these ingredients listed, you probably are using a cosmetic that has some sort of red hue to it, such as lipstick. Though it seems pretty harmless, this dye used in a lot of cosmetics comes from cochineal beetles. The bugs are drowned in hot water, dried, and then ground to a fine powder. The crimson red dye is then extracted and used in whatever beauty product you can imagine. Itís also used in food products as well, such as gelatins, juices, and even candy.
