Living Libations Perfect Pearl Powder is a pristine, deep sea-dream for polished skin and pearly whites. Created from nourishing pearl nacre sourced from deep in the South Seas, this ancient beauty care preparation is used to infuse skin and teeth with beneficial ingredients.
For over three thousand years, pearl powder has been a staple of Chinese health and beauty. Women used pearl powder to slow the signs of aging and fight the appearance of wrinkles. Pearl powder was also applied externally and taken internally by ancient peoples throughout India, Egypt, and the indigenous cultures of South and Central America. Cleopatra was a big fan of pearl powder for her skin, as was Wu Zetian, the only female emperor in China's long history. Today, pearl powder is used for its beautifying properties in skincare products and to polish teeth.
Perfect Pearl Powder comes from Mother of Pearl, also known as pearl nacre, which gives birth to each precious, pearly gem. This biomass contains the same nutrients and compounds as the pearl itself, making it a more affordable alternative to crushed pearls with exactly the same benefits. Pearl nacre is packed with nourishing ingredients. It revitalizes the skin, evens skin tone, smooths wrinkles, and gives the skin pearly radiance.
