** UNIQUE NACRE OF JAPANESE AKOYAS
Akoya, known as akoya-gai in Japanese, is a saltwater pearl oyster scientifically called Pinctada fucata martensii. It has been cultivated in Japan for over 100 years and is prized worldwide for its nacre's elegance.
Akoyas are rare, mainly because they are sensitive to pollutants and other environmental factors. Akoyas from Japan account for less than 2% of the world market.
Nacre (pronounced neikər) is the inner layer of the shell and the outer coating of the pearl itself. Pearl's skin-beautifying and nourishing properties are all about its Nacre.
94% of content of our Akoya nacre powder is minerals such calcium in the form of calcium carbonate crystals (CaCO3) plus magnesium and iron.
5% of the rest is Conchiolin, a complex protein of 17 amino acids which bond the calcium carbonate crystals together. About 1% is pure water.
** FROM PRISTINE UWAJIMA BAY
Uwajima bay is a pristine body of water in southern Shikoku, the smallest of Japanese main islands, covering approximately 30 square kilometers.
Facing Umajima bay is historic Uwajima town. It has a population 77,400 (2015) who for centuries have cared for the bay and depend on its bounty of Akoyas and fishery resources for their livelihood.
