I was browsing the cosmetics database

http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/index.php

and saw they listed placenta as an ingredient to avoid, but I was surprised they didn't mention foreskins. Is it because foreskins can't damage the cosmetics user? Do you think there's any way they'd add this into their database info? I think it's the kind of info people using the database would be interested in, and I hope the EWG would think it would be compelling info to share, too. I'm going to email them this suggestion! (Anyone want to remind me what ingredient labels/products I can reference for this? I remember the Body Shop was one brand...)

Ah, good idea.... I think EWG should have that info on the database... I bet they just don't know. I mean, who would think.

But they don't usually list it in ingredients lists for cosmetics as foreskin, do they? I thought it might say one of a few things.. blastocysts are one, I think.
