Skincare has now gotten a cosmic boost from, er, meteorite dust. Yes, powdered meteorite is now available as an active ingredient in skincare products for us Earthlings — specifically, Anesi Beauté’s Celestial Secret serum. The meteorite extract is purportedly ‘extremely rich in calcium, iron and magnesium’, though the website doesn’t quite state where on Earth these meteorites are sourced from. Still, good to know that some sort of alien life isn’t wrecking havoc on our planet but saving our skin instead.
