What is M. Speciosa? 


Mitragyna speciosa is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family native to Southeast Asia.

Mitragynine is an alkaloid solely native to the Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) plant.


Mitragynine’s benefits are well documented, as well as its cousin alkaloid, 7-hydroxamitragynine. 

Among the alkaloids present in kratom, there also exist some flavonoids–compounds found naturally in many fruits, vegetables and green tea–in addition to terpenoid saponins, polyphenols, and glycosides(1). 

Current research indicates the presence of the various flavonoids may be beneficial in free radical scavenging (those pesky cancer causing, cell damaging agents found in the body), as well as having antimicrobial activity(2), though to what extent remains to be seen.

"Kratom contains an antioxidant similar to the EGCG found in green tea which is actually far more potent at free radical scavenging, offering greater protection against oxidative stress damage, which can result in the appearance of aging." (3)


We infuse so many of our skin care products with M. Speciosa because we love your skin and want you to love it too. 

We also offer a great variety of skin care products that do not contain M. Speciosa. 

There is something for everyone. Let us help you get the skin you deserve.
