Products That Came From Animals

Animal products often came from parts of the animals that are not suitable for human consumption. The use in cosmetics of products derived from human tissues, endangered, or protected aspecies are banned. The main animal products used are proteins ( amino acids aobtained from them), and fats and oils used for making soaps and detergents. Although some of these can also be obtained from plants sources or synthesized from petroleum products. Relatively few fragrances are obtained from animals, although musk is a valued scent secreted from the scent glands of the male Tibetan musk deer, musk ox, civet cat, otter and other species. Ambergris from the sperm whale and castoreum from the beaver have also been used in expensive fragrances.
