Artist Orestes de la Paz decided to recycle his excess fat from his liposuction surgery and convert them to create human soaps infused with human fat.

The Miami-based artist offers his fat-injected soap bars for $1,000 to would-be clients. The soaps are made with coconut oil, organic vegetable shortening, lavender, tree tea oils and 25% of human fat. The soap apparently leaves the skin of users feeling soft after and supple.

Artists say they put blood, sweat and tears into their works, but de la Paz literally does put all of those elements into his art. Fat-infused soaps are something not a lot of people will be comfortable using, but if it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth it should be worth a try.
