Product Description

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.

Japanese pearl experts have discovered that the alkaline phosphate found in pearl can increase the vitality of human epidermal cells and prevent cell aging and deterioration. Pearl contains a unique protein called conchiolin, which is an analog of chlorophyl and hemoglobin*

Pearl powder is one of the most precious dietary supplements from the Orient. Dragon Herbs utilizes the very latest technology to produce the finest pearl powder available in the world for dietary supplement use. Of course, pearls are usually thought of in the Western world as a jewel to be worn, not consumed. But in the Orient, finely ground pearl powder has been used as a dietary supplement for thousands of years, especially by the wealthy. It has many physiological actions beneficial to humans.

Pearl was made especially famous as a beauty tonic by the Dowager Empress Ci Xi, the de-facto last ruler of China’s Qing Dynasty for almost 50 years.

Empress Ci Xi consumed one silver spoon of pearl before bedtime for most of her adult life. In a memoir written by her personal assistant, she was described to have “the skin of a young girl” even in her sixties. Being the actual ruler, she used her administrative power to set up an institute that conducted research on Pearl and other anti-aging materials and prepared all kinds of herbal formulations to satisfy her desire for eternal youth and immortality. She adored pearls so much that she was accompanied by more than 30,000 pearls on her way to the other world, with the largest pearl directly in her mouth.

Pearl is one of the great secrets of the most beautiful women of the Orient.

Dragon Herbs employs a cutting edge grinding technology known as levigation to produce its Pearl Powder. This super fine pearl powder is easily assimilated and utilized by the body, providing a range of novel constituents that can support radiant health.

Pearl Powder contains ALL the biologically active constituents of Pearl. It is rich in minerals, amino acids and co-factors that make it one of the premier anti-aging tonic substances.

Pearl Powder can help prevent the development of melanin, which causes freckles and dark patches on the skin as a normal process during aging. It can help prevent the skin from becoming old looking, wrinkled and sagging. This is partly due to its stimulation of SOD activity and partly due to other capacities and nutrients. Consistent use of pearl powder can eliminate blemishes such as colored spots and even occasional pimples (not cystic acne). Constant use can help assure that the skin will age much more slowly and that it will not be easily harmed by either time or the elements.

Pearl Powder is also a powerful Shen stabilizer, and thus it supports mood. It is among the elite substances of this type known. It can relieve uneasiness, nervousness, anxiety and tension. Pearl Powder supports the nervous system. Consistent use helps a person maintain their energy and vitality. It is an ideal Shen tonic and is the main ingredient in the finest Shen tonic formulations. It may be used for occasional sleeplessness.

Pearl Powder contains dozens of minerals, including: calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, strontium, copper, selenium, silicon, titanium, and more. Pearl contains calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, calcium phosphate, ferric oxide and silica.

But to many people’s surprise, pearl is not just made up of minerals. Pearl contains many amino acids. Eight of the amino acids are “essential” – in other words, they cannot be produced in the body but are required for health. Various components in Pearl participate in DNA and RNA metabolic activities, and thus can support cell renewal. Mucopolysaccharides in Pearl have been shown to prevent wrinkling and to increase libido and sexual potency in humans that is naturally diminished due to aging.

Pearl powder has been shown in China to support the growth of children’s teeth and bones and to support children’s intelligence. Pearl has also been shown to be beneficial for occasional constipation, acting quickly, gently and effectively. Studies indicate that pearl can increase endurance.

Pearl powder supports skeletal tissue and function, especially bone.

Pearl powder supports cardiovascular functions.

Safety studies on Pearl Powder have shown it to be absolutely harmless. It can be taken by anybody for the course of a lifetime without side effects.   

What is “Levigated” Pearl Powder?

Studies conducted over the past several years have proven that the best way to use Pearl is to use it whole. The traditional problem with using whole Pearl powder was that it was difficult to grind fine enough to make it highly bioavailable. Recent advancements in grinding technology now allow the Pearl to be ground into a powder that is very close to nano-sized. This powder is easily and completely absorbed by the body and is fully utilized once it is in the blood stream.

The technique now used is known as levigation.

  • High grade Pearl is ground in water using circular motion.
  • Fine powder will become suspended in water.
  • The water is removed, thus separating the suspended powder from non-suspended heavier powder.
  • More water is added and the grinding continues until all pearl powder is “extracted” (goes into suspension).
  • This will also separate the center impurity (the “seed” that starts the pearl) from actual pearl powder.
  • The solution with “extracted” pearl in suspension is left to settle so the pearl will deposit to the bottom.
  • The deposited pearl is then dried. This “levigated” Pearl powder is almost nano-sized and is thus very easy for the human body to absorb.*

3 ways to use Pearl Powder for skin health

Pearl Powder capsules can be consumed topically and internally, as explained below. You can empty out the capsules and put them in an empty glass jar.

1. Pearl powder as a supplement

100% pure, high quality pearl powder may be taken internally to support skin health. Take a capsule or 2 each day. You can even mix it with your tea, smoothie or any preferred drink. Both our ultra-fine pearl powder and vegetarian pullulan capsules easily dissolve with any drink, plus pearl is tasteless and ultimately healthy over-all!

In China, finely ground pearl powder has been used as a dietary supplement for thousands of years, especially by the wealthy. It has many physiological actions beneficial to humans. According to Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden, these are the benefits of pearl powder supplementation:

  • Pearl powder can support healthy aging and promote the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the strongest antioxidant enzymes in the body
  • Pearl powder contains conchiolin, the secret constituent of Pearl, that has numerous positive functions – conchiolin is what makes Pearl shine, and your skin and eyes radiant
  • Pearl powder is rich in glycine, a kind of collagen fiber than can act as an internal “skin moisturizer”
  • Pearl powder is an excellent source of highly assimilable calcium
  • Pearl powder is rich in amino acids and dozens of trace minerals to support health 
  • Pearl powder is also a powerful Shen stabilizer, supporting one’s mood and helps with occasional sleeplessness.

2. Make a pearl powder mask

Using this divine treatment can effectively calm the redness on your skin! It leaves your face silky, matte, soft and soothed.

Directions: Empty one capsule of pearl powder into a bowl and add water or rose water, a few drops at a time, until you have a thick liquid that you can apply to your face with fingers. Let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing. One capsule of this Pearl Powder is enough per mask, so one bottle can make 100 masks.

3. Use pearl powder as a finishing powder

Pearl Powder is the perfect alternative to your regular pressed powder to mattify your skin or set your makeup! Pearl powder is considered “mineral makeup” because pearls are minerals (with amino acids). It makes an ideal face powder that diffuses imperfections and adds a shine-free luminosity.

The powder is so fine that it doesn’t leave any noticeable color. It should work equally well on light, medium and darker skin tones.

Directions: Empty a capsule of the pearl powder onto a saucer, dip in a fluffy makeup brush, and very lightly brush it over your face. You can even apply it before bed, and it helps soothe skin and absorb excess oil during the night.

P.S. You may not have to break any capsules to reap the benefits of pearl. Try our Pearl Powder pouches!
