Snake Venom As Beauty Product

It seems there’s a snake poison out there that’s good for our skin. Somewhat. Rodial, a British beauty brand, is working with such technologically simulated poison under the name of syn-ake. What’s it supposed to do? In short – it paralyzes the facial muscles – result? No wrinkles.

There’s more than Rodial’s syn-ake poison-like product (which can also be found in Kumaara’s Overnight Repair Complex) – there’s Sonya Dakar, in Beverly Hills who actually works with snake venom facial products. Would you use snake venom (or synthetic venom) to prevent the appearance of wrinkles? (via)

The question is which snake poison do they use? Usually their venom causes death. While snakes are a dying breed -as I’ve read yesterday due to human kind- they are needed now to keep us “young”? The beauty industry breeds them for their venom?
I love snakes. Not that I want to meet a Anaconda but I think they are such beautiful creatures.
There’s something sad about the desperation for eternal youth……

Off-topic: anyone seen the video where Salma Hayek is interviewed (together with two other ladies) and a snake appears? LOL! According to one of the ladies the snake must have been as big as a Anaconda! I bet it was a gardener. :D So my guess is the snake in “From Dusk Till Dawn” was sedated! :D

Eeeewwwww, forgot to click on “via”. It’s the Temple Viper, very gorgeous, very deadly too…..Oh, and I don’t think their skin is meant to be for Louboutins or bags my ladies!
