The cornerstone of Vitalitree’s skin care formulations is the stem bark of the tree known traditionally by the Mayan name of “Tepezcohuite”.
Its historical use by the indigenous Mayan people dates back over a thousand years, and it is still used to this day by South and Meso-American naturopaths, doctors, herbalists, curanderos, and other healers.
Tepezcohuite has often been used on a wide variety of skin conditions, burns, and injuries. As a medicinal salve for healing tattoos, it works with unparalleled efficacy and speed.
When used as an aftercare product, Vitalitree can greatly reduce recovery time. It has a smooth, spreadable texture which melts easily onto the skin. Tepezcohuite provides a myriad of natural compounds that have been shown to assist the skin’s natural ability to heal. It has excellent moisturizing capabilities which keep the skin soft and supple, helping to alleviate dryness and itching while speeding up healing and shortening the amount of time peeling is experienced. Aside from tattoo care, this salve can revitalize dry,cracked skin and other similar conditions.
