Origin of Tepezcohuite
Tepezcohuite, is also known as the "Mayan skin tree" or "Mimosa tenuiflora". Tepezcohuite is a plant that has been used for centuries by indigenous peoples in Mexico for its healing properties.

limited availability
The active ingredient complex from Tepezcohuite has recently also been in great demand in the cosmetics industry. However, the export of Tepezcohuite is regulated by the Mexican government and is subject to strict conditions. This limits the number of cosmetic products with genuine and effective Tepezcohuite.

Beauty secret of the superstars
Stars like Selma Hayek swear by the effects of Tepezcohuite on their skin.
This is how Selma Hayek describes how she owes her beautiful skin to the Mexican plant (see Stern magazine, January 24, 2023).

Where does Tepezcohuite grow
Tepezcohuite is a plant native to the rainforests of Mexico and Brazil. The bark of the tepezcohuite plant contains a variety of active compounds known for their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. These properties make Tepezcohuite an excellent active ingredient in skin care.

Help with acne, rosacea or keratosis pilaris
Tepezcohuite's anti-inflammatory properties make it an effective remedy for acne, rosacea, and skin irritations. Tepezcohuite helps reduce inflammation and soothes the skin, resulting in faster healing of acne and keratosis pilaris.
Tepezcohuite's antibacterial properties also help fight bacteria that can lead to acne. Tepezcohuite can help kill bacteria, unclog pores, and reduce the appearance of blackheads and pimples.

In addition, the antioxidant properties of Tepezcohuite are also known for their anti-aging properties. Antioxidants protect the skin from free radicals that can be caused by pollution, UV rays and other factors. By protecting against free radicals, Tepezcohuite can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and keep skin looking firmer and more youthful.

Rediscovery of the effects of Tepezcohuite
Tepezcohuite is also known for its wound healing properties. In 1985, Tepezcohuite was used in Mexico to treat burns. Since then, it has also become known in the western world as an effective remedy for healing skin damage. Tepezcohuite helps regenerate the skin by promoting cell production and accelerating wound healing.
