For me, it's shark oil.
You get olive oil by squishing olives... but shark oil...? confused

Also, cream of tartar. WHAT is it??? Isn't tartar the stuff on our teeth...?

I noticed on a tube of hair removing cream that the main ingredient is urea. Isn't that <winces> wee?

No urea is not wee! It is a chemical that the uman body produced in abundance though.

Chewy I googled it, and it said it was a chemical compound found in urine.

Hope you're right, and I'm wrong!
