Nerium using fetal tissue?

Customer Question

nerium using fetal tissue?
Submitted: 1 year ago.

a friend has sold me night and day and body curving creams from Nerium international--when I put them on, I have this bizarre feeling that I'm using proteins derived from fetal tissue; it sounds bizarre but I feel contaminated. anyhow, of course I realize about patents but they do list a protein concentrate with proteoglycans, collagens, etc and as a chemist and physician I always wonder about the source ot these? are they using animals, fetal tissue or plants for these sources. she claims they are all plant derived, etc but I have my reservations--thanks for your helps. also the technologies they use--are they green or just "clean"

This is Dr. David

it sounds like you are letting your anxiety get out of control with worry.

these products are safe and have been tested

the ingredients are not derived from fetal tissues.

do you have excessive anxiety symptoms?

are you getting treatment for this?

you didn't answer the question--what is the source of the proteins in the compounded cream--I think I have done more research on the literature for this product than you have--disappointed. I am not anxious or neurotic. I asked a question. Hope you do better for your patients than for me.D Kotschwar MD

you can call up the company

only the company can tell where where the sources of proteins come from

most likely plant proteins.
