Naera Skingredient Spotlight: Pearls

Pearls have a long history, spanning over 2000 years as both a prime beauty and medicinal ingredient. Widely known as the gems of the ocean, pearls have been coveted for their lustre, glow and radiance as well as their health benefits.


Pearl powder can be used as a gentle exfoliator that helps remove dead skin cells. Studies have shown that pearls:

   1. Are rich in antioxidants
   2. Have anti-aging properties
   3. Help brighten the skin
   4. Contains a concentrated source of the most bio-available form of calcium
   5. Contain over 15 amino acids 
   6. Contain 30 trace minerals 




Antioxidants are substances often found in food and skin care that help protect the body’s cells and tissues from oxidative damage by free radicals. 

Amino Acids

Amino acids are organic compounds that can be combined to help stimulate skin cells, promote cellular repair and hydration, protect the skin and build proteins.

High Levels of Calcium

Calcium is a micronutrient that helps regulate sebum and cell turnover, as well as promotes skin regeneration and moisture.

Trace Minerals

Trace minerals help the skin pass toxins and metabolic waste. Pearl is abundant in magnesium and potassium which promotes maintaining healthy skin.

Skin Brightening

Pearl promotes brightening of the skin by regulating the production of tyrosinase, which helps reduce hyperpigmentation and brighten the skin. Pearls are also believed to have a gentle exfoliating effect, removing dead skin cells and revealing a brighter complexion.
