LaVigne Natural Skincare is dedicated to making natural products that both heal damaged skin and protect against the effects of day-to-day stresses from our environment. Each product is created to work effectively within our total skincare system or by itself. All our products are 100% satisfaction guaranteed. President and founder Linda Zaurrini (née LaVigne) has always had a keen interest in natural health and beauty. In 2002, while living in Mexico, she began looking into the healing secrets of the Mayans and visited with local experts to uncover the remarkable properties of Tepezcohuite.
After confirming the available research about this amazing substance, she decided to make it the key healing ingredient in her skincare products. After establishing a reliable source of Tepezcohuite, Linda developed several products and arranged with a reputable cosmetics lab in Vancouver, Canada to manufacture LaVigne Naturals’ product line. The entire process — from research to initial product launch — took less than two years. We continue to research and develop new products to meet the needs of our customers.
LaVigne Natural Skincare’s products feature Tepezcohuite (pronounced ‘tep-ez-co-heety’) as the primary healing and regenerative agent. Derived from the bark of Mexico’s ‘skin tree’, this non-toxic organic ingredient was used by the Mayans for more than ten centuries as an anti-aging skincare product.
Modern-day research has revealed that vital components found in its complex chemical makeup actually repair and protect skin cells – giving it the amazing ability to heal a wide range of skin problems and to promote younger-looking, healthy skin.
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, our cosmetics lab specializes in testing and producing natural skincare products that will leave your skin healthier and rejuvenated. Our staff of chemists has over 20 years of experience in product formulation, research and development. The facility is equipped with automated state-of-the-art machinery that is operated by highly skilled staff to maintain quality control. We follow strict Health Canada guidelines and GMP procedures in the formulation and manufacturing of all our products.
A note from Linda…LaVigne Natural Skincare was born from three things.
- It began with my lifelong interest in natural healing.
- Then came my discovery of the miracle skin-healing ingredient, Tepezcohuite.
- And lastly, a crucial finding: that Parabens and other harsh chemicals were present in most mainstream cosmetics.
These chemicals not only damage the skin, but also interfere with the skin’s natural healing cycle. In that respect, LaVigne’s philosophy has been built on finding the highest quality and most effective ingredients, including tried-and-true ancient healing herbs that work synergistically with today’s cutting edge discoveries.This entire line is derived from ingredients that have been researched and hand-chosen by me, in collaboration with a number of experts, to create powerful skincare products that help to heal, nourish, and protect the skin against daily environmental stresses.
