Properties of some of the Oils and Herbs used in our soaps
The emu is a flightless bird that resembles a small ostrich. Emu oil is taken from the fat of this bird during processing and used to make medicine. Emu oil contains chemicals called fatty acids known to reduce pain and swelling in sudden (acute) inflammation and ongoing (chronic) inflammation. When emu oil is applied to the skin, it has moisturizing and cosmetic properties that resemble those of mineral oil. In a study conducted at Boston University School of Medicine, it was shown to stimulate skin regeneration and hair growth.
"We found that there was about a 20% increase in DNA synthesis, which means that there was a 20% increase in the proliferative activity, or the growth activity of the skin that received (a processed emu oil), compared to the animals that received corn oil." - Dr. Michael Holick, M.D, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine, Physiology, and Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine: A study looking at factors that stimulate and inhibit skin and hair growth using emu oil and corn oil.
Mother of Pearl (Zhen Zhu Mu)
Mother-of-pearl powder - also known as conchiolin powder - is one of the main ingredients used in our proprietary blend of Chinese Herbs. Conchiolin is a unique pearl protein that acts like keratin, one of the fibrous proteins (collagen) found in skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, hair, etc. Conchiolin is known to have the ability to hydrate skin cells, promote skin cell metabolism, facilitate repair of damaged skin cells, and enhance peripheral circulation. In addition to conchiolin, pearl powder contains dozens of amino acids and minerals, which also play an important role in various cellular activities, maintaining normal physiology, and repairing and constructing cells and tissues.
In studies conducted at the Institute of Endocrinology at Zhejing Medical University in China, powdered sea pearl, mother-of-pearl, and freshwater pearl demonstrated systemic anti-aging and tonic actions. Other clinical studies in Japan and France have shown pearl powder to increase bone density and even aid in bone formation.
Powdered Pearl (Zhen Zhu)
Cixi, the last Dowager Empress of China, famed for her beauty and childlike skin up until her death at the age of 73, used pearl powder on her face and ingested it daily. She found that it improved her complexion, softened her skin, and gave her a more youthful appearance.
Royal inhabitants of the Chinese Imperial Palace touted the miraculous rejuvenating effects of the pearl powder they used for healing, skin brightening, wrinkle prevention, and sun protection.
Pearl powder is recorded as a medicine in the Pharmacopoeia of China, and is widely used by doctors and herbalists who practice traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). They have found that pearl powder, applied externally, speeds the skin's natural metabolism to tone complexion, heal blemishes, minimize large pores and reduce redness, and rejuvenate dry, dull skin.
