Pearl powder was made especially famous as a beauty tonic by Empress Ci Xi who was the last de-facto imperial ruler of China. She was known to have the pure skin of a teenager even in her sixties. She consumed one small teaspoon of pearl powder before bedtime throughout her adult life. Pearl’s rare nutritional profile supports the repair, rejuvenation and regeneration of skin cells. Our Pearl Powder is made from pure cultivated fresh water pearls. Pearl's active constituents are preserved and made bio-available in the traditional painstaking water levigation process (grinding in water using a porcelain ball) that lasts 2 days and 2 nights.
