    Default What's in your beauty products? How about human fat?

    Human fat in cosmetics

    November 20, 2009 - 10:45AM

    Four people have been arrested in Peru on suspicion of killing some 60 people to sell their fat and other human tissue to Italian co-conspirators for cosmetic use in Europe, authorities say.
    The suspects were arrested in central Peru this month and a search is underway for seven others, lead prosecutor Jorge Sans Quiro said.
    The fat was purchased "to be commercialised in European (cosmetology) laboratories," he said.
    The prosecutor's indictment said the gang allegedly targeted farmers and indigenous people on remote Andean roads, tricking them by offering jobs before killing them.
    Police began arrests after discovering early this month a container with human fat that was being shipped to Lima from the Andean city of Huanuco, some 400 kilometres northeast of Lima.
    Signs of "an international network trafficking human fat" first surfaced about two months ago, according to General Felix Burga, head of the police criminal division.
    Peruvian press cited him as saying the fat can be sold for $US15,000 ($16,000) per gallon (3.8 litres) in European countries.
    The alleged plot revived the Andean legend of the "Pishtacos", white foreigners who were said to suck the fat out of people travelling on lonely roads at night, making fine soaps, lubricants, healing salves and beauty creams out of the tissue.

    Ha, Google is my friend. Foetuses, close enough.

    Perdita Durango meets Romeo Dolorosa, a criminal who is some sort of priest of a satanic cult and keeps crossing the Mexican-US border safely. He's asked to do a job for crime boss Santos, involving the traffic of human foetuses for the cosmetic industry.

    I have never seen the movie, but the book sucked.

    OT: Ugh. Off to google Italian high end cosmetic firms. Because you just know they were planning on making that shit expensive.
