A Chinese cosmetics company is using skin harvested from the corpses of executed convicts to develop beauty products for sale in Europe, an investigation by the Guardian has discovered.

Agents for the firm have told would-be customers it is developing collagen for lip and wrinkle treatments from skin taken from prisoners after they have been shot. The agents say some of the company's products have been exported to the UK, and that the use of skin from condemned convicts is "traditional" and nothing to "make such a big fuss about".etc etc

They had to resort to that because the non-criminals cost too much.

I wear makeup every so often...if it's a special occassion for example....other than that, I never wear it. Takes way too much time in the morning to put it all on.

ETA: Afplayboy, you should know that I don't wear makeup...I know that I don't need it to impress you.
