Would you use a placenta face cream?

The placenta products currently available

The Liverpool business behind the placenta pills loved by celebrities has now launched a face cream for news mums.

Placenta Plus is hoping the organic cream will give women the ultimate post-birth treatment.

The cream itself contains stem cells and collagen from placenta, extracted and blended ready for use within three days of the baby's delivery.

Mum-of-three, Danielle Kinney who founded the company, said: "The big advantage of placenta cream is it’s a woman’s own stem cells and her own collagen and so her body is going to react a lot better to something that it knows.

“It gives them control back and the new mums I know who have used it say the results are amazing.

"The stem cells will repair any existing damage, that’s what stem cells do, and the skin’s natural collagen which dwindles as we get older is replenished so you get an added plumping.”

Danielle is hoping the cream will have the same success as the pills, which have been made for celebrities such as Coleen Rooney, Tanya Bardsley and Rebekah Vardy.

So, how does it all work?

Women contact Danielle during their pregnancy, and then once labour starts- Danielle is informed and heads to the maternity unit to be ready to pick up the placenta.

“The midwives put it in a placenta bag and put it on ice, and I’m there within an hour.

"Once it’s on ice, it’s actually fine for up to 12 hours and I have a refrigerated box which then plugs into my car so I can get it back to the lab.” Danielle explained.

Once in the lab, Danielle checks the placenta for abnormalities and while most goes into a dehydration machine for 15 hours before being grounded into a powder to make the capsules, a couple of slices is set a side to make the face cream.
