Woman laying in metal washtub with soap, sponge and rubber duck.Remember that iconic scene in Fight Club when Tyler Durden is making soap out of fat from liposuction clinics? Well, Dutch artist Julian Hetzel just kicked things up a notch and is actually doing that for real. That’s right, he’s taking donated fat from lipo patients, making soap and selling it to the public for $32.

Soo, does that mean cleaning your body with soap made from your own fat is a new liposuction benefit? Ew, think again!

Fancy Name or Not, Fat Soap Is Still Fat Soap

Even though Hetzel has named this gross practice schuldfabrik – a pretty cool-sounding word if you didn’t know the meaning – let’s call a spade a spade. It’s human fat soap. These bars of soap are made out of 10% human fat and are supposedly meant to make a statement on guilt vs. good.

While we don’t think anyone needs to feel guilty about getting liposuction, you should feel downright weird if you’re inclined to bathe in the stuff. But hey, to each their own, right?

Maybe don’t do anything weird with your fat after lipo?

What to Do after Lipo Instead

Instead of donating your fat to some guy who’s going to turn around and make a quick 32 bucks on it, maybe you should just focus on doing you instead. Try a new veggie you’ve never had before, start a new workout routine, quit smoking for good, sit back and be thankful that belly pooch is gone for good. And maybe let your cosmetic surgeon worry about what’s going to happen to that leftover fat.
