Perfect health cares were beneficial to her.

The main ingredients of the formula were Chinese motherwort grass, jade powder, antler powder, talcum powder and rouge. Wai Tai Mi Yao (Medical Secrets of an Official) pointed out that using it constantly, women aged 50 would look like 15, ladies would look much younger.
