ABOUT TEPEZCOHUITE

Most of our products are made with Tepezcohuite. Derived from the bark of Mexico’s "skin tree" (mimosa tenuiflora), this non-toxic organic ingredient carries anti-microbial properties, analgesic and regenerative cells that heal a wide range of skin problems while promoting younger-looking, healthy skin. 

 

 
 
 

Tepezcohuite proved vital in the treatment of some of the 5,000 burn victims in the aftermath of a series of liquid petroleum gas explosions near Mexico City in San Juan, November 19, 1984, and was also used to treat victims of a large 1985 earthquake in Mexico.
