Beauty, like a pearl, is formed in layers caressed by time and the elements. Pea rls suggest enduring loveliness. It takes the oyster three years to make a pearl . When a grain of sand penetrates a mollusk shell, cells located inside the shel l mantle secrete concentric layers of mother of pearl around the particle, final ly creating the pearl. Pearls culled from depths of 48 to 120 feet are found in waters of the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Mannar near Sri Lanka, Indonesia, island s in the South Pacific, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Mississippi River. In China, pearling was known before 1000 BC. Powdered pearl, ingested as an anti-inflamma tory herbal medicine or applied to the skin as a beauty treatment was preferred by CiXi, the last Empress of China, during the Qing Dynasty. Her flawless comple xion was renowned. In Bernardo Bertolucci s epic film, The Last Emperor, a giant b lack pearl was placed in the Empress mouth the moment she died in homage to her as a precious jewel. In China traditional herbalists and medical research doctors work together in cl inics and hospitals. If you take a calcium supplement, Dr. Raymond Chang, a New York oncologist, recommends vitamin D3 to improve absorption of calcium and to h elp prevent cancer. Vitamin D3 breaks down cancer cells. Most people do not get enough vitamin D in their diet or from exposure to sunshine. They therefore cann ot absorb calcium adequately. Avoiding the sun, they more frequently develop bre ast and uterine cancers, while trying to reduce their chances of skin cancer. Pe arl may be one way to get your calcium and trace minerals.

Exfoliating treatments refine the skin s appearance. Pearl powder, used externally and also ta ken internally, both prevents and treats acne and other skin disorders, helping to heal blemishes and reduce redness. Pearl powder is sprinkled into wounds in C hinese hospitals because its antiseptic action speeds healing. Pearl powder also absorbs excess oil and moisture, and it is used in surgeon s gloves to keep their hands dry during operations. In China and Japan there is considerable ongoing scientific research into the pr operties of pearl and other traditional herbal remedies. Only some of the result s are available in articles published in English, usually on the Internet. Curre nt research does verify the pearl s health and beauty benefits. Pearl s nacre (mothe r of pearl) is made of aragonite (CaCO3) and a small amount of conchiolin, an or ganic albuminoid substance found in the mollusk s outer shell. While, in the Weste rn view, calcium carbonate is the sole active ingredient in pearl, natural produ cts should be used whole whenever possible because of the benefits of their trac e ingredients.
