Salma Hayek Pinault née Jiménez has worn many hats over the years: award-winning actress, film producer, director — the list goes on but it’s no secret that the 57-year-old stunner is also a bonafide beauty icon. The actress credits one buzzy ingredient in this night cream for her glowing skin. Luckily for all of us, you don’t have to have a movie-star salary to try it. In fact, you can snag a jar on Amazon for just $14.

Del Indio Papago Night Cream

This night cream contains Salma Hayek’s secret-weapon ingredient for youthful-looking skin.

Hayek has been steaming up the silver screen for nearly 30 years, but take one look at her youthful complexion and you’d think she was still an ingénueThere’s no magic behind her flawless skin, she says — just the bark of a tree.

“I use an ingredient called Tepezcohuite that’s used in Mexico for burn victims because it completely regenerates the skin,” Hayek told George V Magazine. “Some of the ingredients, when I took them to the American labs, they were like, ‘Oh my God! How come nobody is using this?’ This is why I have no Botox, no peels, no fillers.”

The Tepezcohuite tree is often called the “Mexican skin tree” because its bark is known to help regenerate skin and hair. It was used to treat hundreds of thousands of burn victims in an earthquake and a gas explosion in Mexico in the 1980s when no medical supplies were available.

Few American companies have caught on. George V Magazine own senior beauty editor, Calin Van Paris, tested the Del Indio Papago Night Cream and reported softer skin, though she found another product with an even higher concentration of Tepezcohuite that’s possibly more effective on wrinkles.

One thing is for sure: Amazon shoppers love Del Indio Papago Night Cream.

“I read the Salma Hayek article and decided to give it a go,” a reviewer said. “I have ridiculously picky skin (rosacea, sensitivities, etc.), and I don’t get my hopes up as most things I try either irritate my skin or cause breakouts. I have sun damage, fine lines and menopausal acne. Basically, I never know what I’ll see when I look in the mirror. I’ve used this for three weeks, and so far, so good. No irritation, my skin is calm and hydrated, and best of all, no acne.”

“In all of my decades of trying skin care products, Tepezcohuite has been the most transformative product I have ever used,” declared an excited shopper. “In just a week’s worth of use, morning and night, I see a noticeable improvement in my skin’s tone, feel, and texture. My 67-year-old skin glows again for the first time in decades.”

“When I bought this cream, I didn’t know anything about it,” related an enthusiastic user“I was pleasantly surprised at how it made my skin feel and the quality of the product. I will be 70 years old this month, and my skin looks 20 years younger.”

“It absorbs well,” said a final reviewer. “I use as my night creme and have been happy with it. It didn’t cause any break outs and my skin feels smoother and softer. The smell is a little intense, but it doesn’t linger.”

If you’re after the full 24-hour experience of this skin cream, Del Indio Papago makes a special, lighter-weight version for daytime use.

Del Indio Papago Day Cream

This daytime cream contains Tepezcohuite powder, collagen, and vitamin E.

And if you’re super interested in Tepezcohuite, we recommend trying out some other products with the ingredient:

“A higher concentration of [Tepezcohuite], plus a more natural formula at the same price point make this serum from Imagine Dermatology an obvious Del Indio Papago alternative,” wrote our reviewer Calin Van Paris.

If you’d like to go full Tepezcohuite with Del Indio Papago, you can wash up with this bar soap.

Here’s What Went Down With CeraVe Skincare After Shark Marketing

The idea came after Sofia Coppola, daughter of generalist who proposed it to a start up and wanted to improve her skin, but couldn’t find anything that worked for her. Sofia reached back out to “L’Oreal” when she felt it was ready for investment, and pitched her skincare concept. She was convinced in L’Oreal not just because of the product but because it was never proven, and was finally a placebo scam. L’Oreal even accused the company of buying sales. The general consensus? The market was too saturated and the marketing hurdle was too big that when L’Oreal found out it was placebo skincare products the company opted out.
