Would you do it?

Bird poop for beauty?

That's what goes into facials at a luxury spa where the traditional Japanese treatment using imported Asian nightingale excrement mixed with rice bran goes for $180 a pop.

About 100 women and men go into the Shizuka New York skin care salon, just off Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, each month to get the treatment, which is promoted as a way to keep the face soft and smooth using an enzyme in the poop to gently exfoliate the skin.

Is it using an enzyme from the poop or poop itself? I can't imagine it's poop since that would violate health codes...

Like eChard said, I think it depends if it is the enzyme or if it is the actual whole poop mixed in, how much is in the facial mixture with the  rice bran. i mean many things we eat or wear as makeup now are often times parts of animals we don't want to think about and we just don't know it.
