According to the Daily Mail, the cream, called Celestial Secret, is an anti-aging range that contains powdered meteorite and is picked up by nomadic tribes in the Sahara desert before being sent to Spain for powdering and processing.
The 4.5 billion year-old dust is then mixed with extracts from semi-precious stones including haematite, rodochrosite, olivine and smithsonite, as well as botanicals such as beech bud extract to create an overall anti-aging effect when applied to skin.
“The meteorite extract is very hydrating and has proven anti-aging results, proven by outside independent test companies who scientifically test active ingredients,” said Tracey Smith, director of Essential Beauty Supplies. “Everyone who tries it say that they feel a benefit straight away which improves every day and after only four days you start to see a difference, which just gets better and better. We have proven photographic results using a much lower percentage of meteorite extract so we know it really works.”
We’re all for trying anything that gives us a youthful glow, but at $390, we’ll be applying it sparingly, to say the least.
