Authentic Amber contains succinic acid, a natural analgesic and healing agent. When worn against the skin (under clothes), Amber warms to the body temperature and transfers the succinic acid through the skin to help the body with all kinds of relief.
This is another reason why it is important to keep your Amber dry and against your skin. The succinic acid can only be activated when the amber reaches the body temperature.
Most synthetic, or fake Amber will remain cool and not reach the body temperature. Observing your amber is a great way to know if you are wearing genuine Amber. Our Amber at Amber by Amanda will warm to your body temperature in a matter of a couple short minutes while it rests against the skin, so you can assure your Amber does, indeed, contain natural levels of succinic acid.
