This all started in 2002 when the found of Lavigne Natural Skincare was living in Mexico and she was immersed in the culture. Here she learned about the amazing “skin tree” ingredient, Tepezcohuite (don’t worry, we have trouble saying it too, it’s pronounced tep-ez-co-heety).
This inspired her natural skincare line you see today and their first product, Mayan Magic, that is still the core of our company (and our best seller!). She could see the magic (pun intended) that this powerful balm has and it continues, to this day, to inspire our whole skincare line.
Tepezcohuite is the core of our skincare line and it originates from the Mayan culture where it known as the “skin tree”. It’s renowned for cell regeneration and is used
extensively for burns, rashes, Psoriasis, Eczema, protecting and beautifying the skin. It was even used by the Red Cross in 1984 to treat burn patients after an awful gas explosion in Mexico City. This is why we knew that we needed the right chemist to encompass our vision of an all-natural skin care line with zero compromises and without toxic ingredients and synthetic fragrances.
