The cradle of Chinese civilization, the Yangtze River meanders through the mountains and plains and flows into the East China Sea. Where the Yangtze nears the Ocean, it is the culturally richest area in China and the home to precious fresh water pearls and ageless silk.
Taihu Lake, the third largest lake in China where pearls are grown, is surrounded to the North by the Yangtze River, to the East by the East China Sea, to the South by Hangzhou Bay and to the West by a mountainous area. The lake provides fresh water to the cities of Shanghai, Wuxi and Suzhou, while providing the resource to make the pearl skin care products.
The rich surrounding land grows mulberry trees whose leaves are a staple for silkworms. These gentle worms spin a pure white cocoon. Silk threads are then spun and garments are woven for the finest touch of silk. Silk extracts are obtained for their healthy properties for body and skin.
The beauty enriching functions of the pearl and silk have been a well-kept secret of the "Kingdom of Heaven" until February, 1972, when Richard Nixon's Air Force One landed in Beijing. From that day on, the pearl and silk cream has been a favorite for American travelers to China and American expatriates living in China.
Now we are introducing this wonderful beauty care pearl & silk cream to you on this side of the world.
