Pearl powder has been used as both a medicine and cosmetic in China and beyond since around 320 AD. The beautiful empress Wu Ze Tian used it to stimulate new skin growth and healing, release toxins, and remove sun damage and age spots.
Pearl powder has also been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India, and it was even used in love potions. Today, it’s still widely believed to help improve the appearance of the skin, and is used as a cosmetic by royal families in Asia. This stuff is powerful: it can treat acne, and modern scientific studies have shown it can stimulate the skin’s fibroblasts, help regenerate collagen, and accelerate healing of certain skin conditions, wounds and burns. It is also used as a toothpaste, and is claimed to improve the appearance of the teeth, to reduce the pain from sensitive teeth, and to strengthen and repair the gums – this isn’t surprising when you learn that pearl powder contains a number of amino acids, over 30 trace minerals, and has a high concentration of calcium. No wonder the Chinese still use it today as in medicine.
The only problem is, since it’s made of real, purified pearls, this powder isn’t cheap. But never fear: now you can try Pearl Powder thanks to our competition with Moroccan Natural.
