Hippo milk, seaweed, starfish extract and sand are just a few of the strange beauty ingredients that can be found in many cosmetics on the market.

As such, many of these beauty ingredients include food bases like avocado, tomato, honey, herbs, as well as more indulgent items like caffeine and champagne. While these ingredients are far from being seen as bizarre on a table, the cosmetic industry is only now beginning to push for skin to be nourished in the same way as the body.
