What is tourmaline – description and properties
To understand how tourmaline and cosmetic products containing it affect our health and appearance, we need to understand what this unique crystal is. Tourmaline is a natural mineral that has been formed over many thousands of years as a result of a volcanic eruption. Translated from the ancient Sinhali language, the name itself means “precious mixed stone”. Tourmaline is able to reflect colors, it can be of any shade.
But the uniqueness of crystals is not only in this. When pressure is applied to the surface, they form an electric charge that acts resonantly on the human body. The chemical composition of tourmalines is also very unusual. The combinations of components are so diverse that it is difficult to attribute tourmalines to one group of minerals with a well-defined composition; scientists divide them into several broad subgroups, each of which has its own characteristics and properties.
Recently, great attention has been paid to these multi-colored stones as a healing agent, their properties are still not fully understood. Although the healing properties of tourmaline were known to the ancients. It is known that tourmaline crystals are able to absorb solar energy and create an electric field around them. Tourmaline is both a source of infrared radiation and negative ions. In China, this amazing mineral has been treated with respect and reverence since ancient times. It was believed that it attracts energy flows from space and thus protects a person, surrounds him with a special aura, protects him from diseases and prolongs life.
Tourmaline soap – what is it
The researchers found that the strength of the energy charge of tourmaline directly depends on the thickness of the crystals. The thinner it is, the more unique its properties. Tourmaline chips and small pieces of crystals are widely used to make whitening toothpaste, face and body scrubs and masks, and, of course, soaps.
It is quite difficult to find tourmaline soap in free sale, even in large cities. But in online stores it is always in stock. The cleanser looks like a small bar of dark brown, gray or black color, usually packed in cellophane and in a cardboard box. Don’t be confused by such an unusual shade and dirty foam that forms when soaping. This is just bamboo charcoal (burnt bamboo shoots) – the second active component of the soap, which helps to whiten the skin, remove age spots, and make freckles less noticeable. The cost of one bar, depending on the manufacturer and composition, varies from 70 to 130 rubles.
Also, the composition of the soap may include such additional components:
- seaweed extract;
- extracts of various plants;
- amino acids.
A variety of artificial flavors, dyes and preservatives are not used for the manufacture of soap, which makes it acceptable to use it in the care of even infants. The product is practically odorless – an important factor for the elderly, pregnant women and allergy sufferers. Let us consider in detail what effect regular use of tourmaline soap has on our skin?
