Tepezcohuite

All of LaVigne Natural Skincare’s products feature Tepezcohuite (pronounced ‘tep-ez-co-heety’). Derived from the bark of Mexico’s ‘skin tree’, this non-toxic wild-harvested ingredient was used by the Mayans for more than ten centuries to nourish skin.

World-renowned spas, such as Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos, use Tepezcohuite in some of their exclusive spa treatments (available to their clientele on a very limited basis). LaVigne Natural Skincare now makes this special botanical gift from Mother Earth available to you.

Research

In 1984, a group of medics witnessed a phenomenon in Mexico City. Hundreds of people had been severely burned in a series of explosions in a gas factory. The Red Cross successfully treated victims by dusting their wounds with Tepezcohuite powder. Tepezcohuite’s regenerative action on the injured tissues worked wonders: it was so effective that it was used one year later when an earthquake caused a gas explosion in the Aztec capital.

For many years, principal health institutions in Mexico have studied Tepezcohuite, also known as the ‘skin tree’.
