• The benefits of Mother-of-Pearl powder : Dosage

May 31, 2023

Is Pearl powder the new miracle ingredient in cosmetics?

Today, pearls are gaining popularity as an ingredient in cosmetics alongside other natural extracts like ginseng, green tea, and oil extracts. But the use of pearls in cosmetics have been used for centuries in Asia, particularly in China and Japan, for their cosmetic and medicinal benefits. They contain beneficial properties that help maintain youthful skin and are used in various forms such as pearl powder and dietary supplements. Lynn has analysed the use of mother-of-pearl powder in cosmetics and tested the new food supplement Dosage, based on the key ingredient.  

Known for their use in jewelry and decorative objects, Mother-of-Pearl beads have many other uses. As a natural source of calcium, Pearls can have medicinal properties and help with :

  • Preventing osteoporosis
  • Improving skin firmness and elasticity
  • Improving mineral deficiencies
  • Strengthening of ornamental health (skin, nails, hair)
  • Protection of bone mass

Chinese empresses were the first to use them as early as 2000 years ago. The Mother-of-Pearl powders were used to enhance the radiance of their skin, tone-up and maintain their libido.  They also used them in the form of ointment to smooth wrinkles and tone the skin of the face. Nacre powder can be incorporated into toothpastes, cosmetic creams and food supplements.

What is pearl powder ?

Mother-of-pearl - also called nacre - is produced by certain species of oyster to line the inside of their shells, preventing irritation from the rough outer shell and helping to protect against parasites. Pearl powder is made by boiling fresh or saltwater pearls (to sterilize them), and then milling the pearls into a soft fine powder. Pearl powder contains the following:

  • Amino acids: they stimulate skin cells to produce collagen, promote cellular repair and hydration, and protect skin from pollution and outside elements. 
  • Trace minerals: pear powder contains over 30 trace minerals, including magnesium and potassium, which help maintain skin’s health.
  • High levels of calcium: Calcium promotes skin regeneration and moisture. It also helps to regulate sebum and cell turnover. Taken orally, calcium also helps with bone strength and may fight against osteoporosis. 
  • Antioxidant boosters: pearl powder is said to boost two of the bodies most abundant antioxidants: superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione. These antioxidants can help fight against disease and may even extend life.

Dosage, your new health ally with 100% Mother-of-Pearl powder

It's very naturally that Matilde Riccardi, co-founder of Dosage turned her attention on Pearl powder to create a science based food supplement: encapsulated Mother-of-Pearl powder from French Polynesia. It’s been the saving grace for her skin and thousands of others.

This cure is a complete treatment that acts in depth from the inside out in a progressive and lasting way when taken daily. The results are directly visible on the outside, with a brighter complexion, but is also felt on the inside, on an emotional and physiological level by helping to calm the nervous system. 

The powder encapsulated inside the Dosage is 100% pure. Free of environmental toxins such as heavy metals, additives and harmful microbes, it is strictly composed of nacre powder isolated from oyster shells.

How to use Dosage : This supplement is to be used for 3 months at a rate of 1 capsule/day for prevention or 2 capsules/day in case of deficiency. 

Why is Dosage one of Lynn's new favorite ?
