Pearl Essence

Q: I saw someplace that “most lipstick contains fish scales” what does this mean?
A: It’s referring to pearl essence (or pearlescence), is a substance extracted from (kosher) herring scales. It provides the shine to herring, and serves the same function in certain cosmetics. It doesn’t pose a kashrus concern.
