Are Bird Poop Facials Dangerous?
A recent article in Australia’s The International Business Times discusses the transmission of possible diseases like the Bird Flu by way of applying bird poop to the face. While The Geisha Facial® uses the Japanese face product, uguisu no fun or Nightingale droppings, our product is sanitized by ultraviolet light before the purified droppings are milled into a fine powder. Most clients say it smells “organic” like cereal or oat bran and is gently soothing when applied to skin.
The owner, Shizuka Bernstein, created The Geisha Facial ® specifically for Shizuka New York Day Spa, using only sterile and safe ingredients. This facial is mild but effective for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
There are a myriad of harmful bacteria in “raw” bird poop, so we urge you to please be cautious when getting any sort of “bird poop facial” from imitators.
