La placenta it is a temporary organ that connects the developing fetus through the umbilical cord with the uterine wall to allow nutrient absorption, thermoregulation, waste disposal and gas exchange through the mother's blood supply; to fight against internal infection; and to produce hormones that support pregnancy. Placentas are a defining characteristic of placental mammals, but they are also found in marsupials and some non-mammals with different levels of development.
60 has been years since the first cosmetics formulated with placenta extract were launched. The exaggerated claims of their inventors put those first products in trouble, but today placenta-based face creams and treatments can be great business, entertain themselves in Hollywood and thrive in the Far East.
What are placenta cosmetics?
At 1958, the American cosmetics company Lambert-Hudnut presented Elixir Natale and Cream Natale, the first cosmetics formulated with placentin, a highly concentrated placental extract that combines the proteins, hormones and vitamins that help promote the growth of skin cells before birth Unfortunately, his promises to "allow the skin to remain in the" flowering "of childhood" and make women look "incredibly younger" were considered misleading, and the authorities confiscated the products.
This did not prevent a series of cosmetics containing placental material from entering the market in the coming decades, from bust creams to lipsticks, soaps and toilet waters. These used human placental tissue in some cases, as well as bovine placenta (from cows), swine (from pigs) and sheep (from sheep).
Today, companies pharmaceuticals extract the high levels of proteins and enzymes from the placenta and convert them into chemical compounds used in products to fight wrinkles and revive tired eyes, to hydrate and heal, and to add to shampoos and conditioners to strengthen hair.
Do placenta cosmetics work?
Scientific studies have shown that placenta-based creams and capsules have proven benefits to improve skin and aging. A Korean study of 2015 1 published in the Korean Journal for Food Science of Animal Resources found that intake of pork placenta extract reduces transepidermal water loss and UV wrinkle formation. A Japanese 2 study in the Gynecology & Obstetrics Journal at 2013 showed that the swine placenta stimulated the proliferation of collagen in human fibroblast cells, which play a vital role in wound healing.
It is no accident that Asia is leading the way in this scientific research. Japan is an important market for placenta-based cosmetics, as the MindBodyGreen blog recently pointed out how in Tokyo: "The word" placenta "[was] everywhere: set in bottles of 1 tonic ounce in mini-marts, in The high-end department store lotions and creams, and widespread throughout the supplements section in pharmacies ... The placenta is the anti-aging ingredient of the moment «. Blogger Amy Chang reported on the benefits of placental tinctures and capsules that she tried: »My skin was radiant at the end of our first week. My hair thickened. My skin was smoothed and visibly lit. ”

Anti-aging and hydration properties.

Founder Maryam Zamani says of products such as her nighttime restorative serum of placenta and stem cells: “When absorbed topically, [they help] increase collagen synthesis while increasing hydration, which helps fight the signs of aging and rejuvenates the skin". he arrives to quantify the benefits mathematically, stating that the serum is “clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles up to 14,4% after 1 month; 100% of patients reported better skin softness; and clinical studies also show that the skin is 20% more hydrated after 30 days «.
