Tepezcohuite, An Ancient Mayan Skin Secret




Tepezcohuite (pronounced “Te-pez-co-whee-tay”)(or mimosa) is a long held beauty secret by the Mayans that is derived from Mexico’s “skin tree”.

Tepezchohuite is a perennial evergreen tree or shrub native to the northeastern region of Brazil and found as far north as southern Mexico. 

Actor Salma Hayek considers it her and her families' beauty secret and has added this healing bark to her beauty line, Nuance. She is quoted as saying, “because my grandmother, who was a beauty, she died at 96 with no wrinkles. And you should see my mother! We have some family secrets. . . Have you heard of Tepezcohuite?"

The bark has a mysterious regenerative effect on skin and tissue. 
Vital components found in its complex chemical makeup actually repair and protect skin cells (as shown in it's use in 5,000 burn victims in Mexico) - giving it the amazing ability to heal a wide range of skin problems especially acne and burns, and to promote younger-looking, healthy skin.
 It has the ability to promote the growth rate of human cells in culture and has been shown to stimulate dermal fibroblast activity. Tepezcohuite inhibits hyaluronidase, an act that protects hyaluronic acid in the skin. Powder from the bark has a 2-3 hour pain killing effect on the skin. Bark powder causes skin to regenerate fully in a matter of weeks.

Studies show that at a 10% concentration, tepezcohuite can treat eczema and skin inflammation.Extensive research has been performed in labs throughout the world. They have found that Tepezcohuite (Tepescohuite in English) is non-toxic, a cellular regenerator, an anti-bacterial 300% more effective than streptomycin, and a powerful fungicide.
It reduces the appearance of pigmentation imbalances, age spots, stretch marks, scars, cellulite and enlarged pores and also is:
  • An all natural skin rejuvenator.
  • Removes all makeup, dirt, oils and grime that clog the pores. 
  • Exfoliates the skin to leave it soft and radiant, removing dead cells and dry skin.
  • Renews fresh skin tone for a more youthful look.
  • Minimizes wrinkles and fine age lines.
  • Guards against the signs of aging
  • Promote the creation of new skin cells
  • Stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to improve skin's elasticity
  • Regenerate deep soft tissue and hair follicles
  • Heal serious burns and skin blemishes
  • Treat Psoriasis and Herpes I & II
  • Minimize scarring
  • Relieve the pain of sore, cracked or damaged skin
  • Alleviate the discomfort of pressure sores 
  • Defend against bacteria, fungi and viral infections and germs


Powdered tepezcohuite bark contains large amounts (16%) of tannins, which act as an astringent, making the skin stop bleeding. This helps protect the body from infection, while the skin builds new protective tissue. It also contains three kinds of steroid, which have an anti-inflammatory effect.
Tannins in the bark diminish capillary permeability. It contains antioxidants flavonoids.

The bark is known to be rich in tannins, saponins, alkaloids, lipids, phytosterols, glucosides, xylose, rhamnose, arabinose, lupeol, methoxychalcones and kukulkanins.






Research 
Extensive research has been performed in labs in Mexico, Canada and the United Kingdom. It is now used in commercial hair and skin products for rejuvenating 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. The Red Cross successfully treated victims by dusting their wounds with Tepezcohuite powder. It was also used to treat victims of a large 1985 earthquake in Mexico. 

Powder from the bark has a 2-3 hour pain killing effect on the skin. Bark powder causes skin to regenerate fully in a matter of weeks. The results and some mechanisms thereof have been confirmed in the laboratory. Tepezcohuite is used to treat acne, psoriasis and herpes.  

In vitro studies have shown three times more bacteriocidal activity on bacterial cultures than streptomycin, and it works to some degree in vivo.


In his study, Pharmaceutical preparation containing Mimosa Tenuiflora extract with skin-regenerating properties, Tellez is able to demonstrate the effectiveness of topically applying Tepezcohuite to treat eczema. In this study, tepezcohuite was topically applied, in a 10% concentration, on participants with eczema. Results not only showed an improvement in eczema, but also a significant decrease in inflammation. This study demonstrated the natural healing effects of Tepezcohuite, and also showed its healing effect on eczema.

In vitro studies have shown three times more bacteriocidal activity on bacterial cultures than streptomycin.

Tepezcohuite has been found to help heal, treat and improve:
eczema, burns, acne, scars, wrinkles, psoriasis, rosacea, herpes, dry skin, stretch marks, and many other skin issues.

Where to Find Tepezcohuite
Salma Hayek has a line of skin and hair products called Nuance containing tepezcohuite. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of her line because I like purer ingredients, but her line is worth a mention.

There is much praise for a tepezcohuite cream called Pomade Arbol De Vida, but I'm not a fan of the first ingredients, petroleum jelly. Other than that, the ingredients are pure, just tepezcohuite, wheat germ oil and rose.

What I do highly recommend is just pure Tepezcohuite powder (also here) which can be made into a skin paste or added to creams or skin washes. This is the most natural way to go.

I did find a few fabulous, homemade tepezochute products on Etsy here

Thanks for reading! What do you think?

  7. Hello. I am very aware of the amazing healing capabilities of tepezcohuite. For this reason I am searching for a large bulk supplier of the powder. I plan to donate as much as possible to the humanitarian aid organizations on the ground in Syria. There are an overwhelming number of severe wound and burn victims, mostly children, with not nearly enough medical supplies or medicines. If anyone reading this can help me in this effort please send an email to mundoesnuestro@gmail.com. Thank you.

  9. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future injectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because i have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but i still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr Itua Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
    Syndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Fatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases.Hiv_ Aids,Herpe ,Copd,Diabetes,Hepatitis,I read about him online how he cure Tasha and Tara so i contacted him on drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com even talked on whatsapps +2348149277967 believe me it was easy i drank his herbal medicine for two weeks and i was cured just like that isn't Dr Itua a wonder man?

  13. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Prostate Cancer,Blood Cancer,Lung Cancer,Brain Cancer,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Love Spell,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy,Hpv,Weak Erection,Wart Remover. Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. Email..drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com/ info@drituaherbalcenter.com. then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
