Baby placenta reduces eye wrinkles?
Does baby placenta reduce wrinkles?
Amazingly, the anti-ageing qualities of placenta had been around since the 1930s when women were paying big money to have it injected into them. Recently in India a procedure became very popular in Dubai where an American company provided the placenta is of the afterbirth of Russian babies.

Placenta's from sheep's or horses had been used for eons in a number of products.
The real question is..is baby placenta effective for wrinkles on the eye and face?
Dermatology professor from N.Y.U., Ronald Branncaccio speaking to TIME.com said that this was all rubbish. There's nothing magical about placenta. He went on to say if there is any benefit it is probably because the cream works within moisturising base of the cream rather than the placenta.
An additional warning was put out by an FDA study in 2002who found girls as early as eight were developing pubic hairs and breasts after using estrogen or placenta-based products.
The acting director, Ella Toombs, For the Office of Cosmetics and Colour FDA told new scientist magazine that no amount of oestrogen is considered safe and cannot be included in an over-the-counter product.
