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.
Use a dash with pure water, any of our Best Skin Evers or our Frankincense Honey Mask to create a smoothing, strengthening facial mask or gentle exfoliator.
It also makes a wonderful addition to your tooth-brushing regimen; add a pinch to any of our oral serums to polish your pearly whites or mix with Coconut oil for a pulling serum.
I'm a BIG fan of pearl powder. I'm also a big fan of sodium bicarb. I love the experience of adding a sprinkle of this powder to my cleansing oil and using as an exfoliant and then leaving on as a mask for 5 - 10 minutes whilst relaxing in the bath. It gives a great exfoliating action to the skin. And I always notice that my skin looks brighter after using pearl powder. That little jar will last a zillion years too, as you only need a sprinkle per application
