Tepezcohuite (mimoza tenuiflora), a tree from northern Brazil and southern Mexico. The Maya people have used the tree in the 10th century to treat and heal the skin. This tree is still used by local population as herbal remedy for people and animals.
Except the ability to heal the wounds, Tapezcouite has an antiseptic effect and contains tannins and flavonoids which reduce negative effect of free radicals and prevent the degradation of collagen and elastin. It also has a perfect regenerative effect on the skin and tissue. It helps the growth of skin cells and inhibits hyaluronidase, a function that protects the hyaluronic acid in the skin. Salma Hayek, the actress, has launched a whole line of skin care with this ingredient.
Tepezchouite macerat is one of the key ingredients of Alavi Flora Divina Hydration Fluid. Along with a rich selection of organic ingredients such as cucumber extract, mallow extract and shea butter, it helps a natural regeneration process for fresh, nourished and visibly elastic skin.
