Sandra Bullock And Cate Blanchett Use Foreskin Cells From Korean Babies To Look Young

The quest for eternal beauty and youth is one that has long captivated us all–especially those in the entertainment industry. Recently, Academy Award-winning actresses and stars of the new film Ocean’s 8, Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett both admitted to using a particularly expensive and odd skin treatment.

Bullock described receiving the beautification process on Ellen, referring to it as the “penis facial.” Host Ellen Degeneres, who is known for her open-mindedness and quirkiness, did not seem particularly enthused by it.

Bullock and Blanchett get their beautifying done by facialist Georgia Louise.

According to Georgia Louise’s eponymous company, “For the Hollywood EGF Facial treatment [the one Bullock uses], Georgia Louise uses her TCA peels, micro-needling machine and an electrifying mask to calm the skin, followed by her ‘secret box’ of EGF serum (Epidermal Growth Factor). EGF is derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast taken from Korean newborn baby foreskin – which helps to generate collagen and elastin.”

Ms. Louise also clarified that newborn foreskin cells are not actually being kneaded directly into people’s faces: “I always explain that EGF is derived from newborn baby foreskin, but cells were taken, and from that, new cells are cloned from a laboratory.”

Still, foreskin cells from hospital circumcisions ARE being used as the source from which the utilized cells are cloned.

Those who under go the EGF Facial Treatment must avoid applying makeup, direct sunlight, and hot water near their faces for at least 24 hours in order for the cells to work their magic.

Netizens, many of them horrified, weighed in on the controversial facial.

Activists who view the process of circumcision (which is widely practiced and accepted in South Korea) as genital mutilation and a human rights violation of an infant’s body, were particularly outraged.
