You probably know Pier 1 Imports for unique home furnishings. But, in January ’09, Pier 1 Imports will introduce a body and skincare called Nature’s Minerals. It’s an exclusive Dead Sea mineral collection that they say to be the same richly concentrated minerals to be treasured by Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt, and attributed to her youthful and smooth skin.
Science has shown that bathing in the salts stimulates circulation and encourages the skin to renew and improve itself. It’s called "Sea of Salt", and contains over 21 therapeutic minerals- the highest concentration of any body of water on the planet. Changes can even be seen and felt after the first use. All Nature’s Minerals products contain the following skin-loving elements of:
· Potassium and sodium advance proper cell hydration; prevents puffiness
· Magnesium promotes speedier cell regeneration for smooth, youthful skin
· Bromine helps heal and soothe skin inflammation
· Chlorine encourages mineral balance in the cells and body
· Calcium works to clear blemishes and revitalize dull, tired-looking skin
Their unique scents and exclusive formula are based on three raw materials present in the Dead Sea: mud, minerals and salt. These unique elements are blended into rich therapeutic formulas for every part of the body. In addition to their cosmetic benefits, these products are easily absorbed by the skin, helping to relieve aches and pains in joints and muscles.
Nature’s Mineral’s product line includes body washes, soaps, bath salts, lotions, hand cream, foot cream and salt scrubs and are available in four unique scents:
Kyoto Blossom: Combines Dead Sea minerals with rose extract, well known for its softening and soothing effects on the skin. The calming Kyoto Blossom fragrance is a subtle rose floral.
Ming Palace: Pairs the Dead Sea minerals with lotus extract which helps cleanse and purify the skin. The invigorating Chai Tea fragrance has a just-right hint of spice.
Kashmir Beauty: Marries the Dead Sea minerals with cardamom extract, whose soothing virtues help the skin regain composure and softness. The gentle White Tea and Ginger fragrance is sweet and soothing.
Zaira Desert: Joins the natural Dead Sea minerals with the exotic floral-y/herbal scent of South African Rooibos Tea to enhance the condition of and promote softer, smoother skin.
The line sounds very promising, and seems to be very beneficial for healthy skin. I’ll give it a try in January when it launches, to see if I can achieve the youthful glow, of Cleopatra!
