The Tuuwa Story
Our mission and passion is to use the finest, purest, time-tested ingredients that Mother Nature has provided for us on the Earth to promote optimal health and wellness. Thus, we wanted our company’s name to reflect our origins, so we chose “Tuuwa” which is a Hopi word that means “Earth.”
Modern life disconnects us from the Earth, and we at Tuuwa believe in rekindling a strong relationship with, and respect for, the bounty which our Earth provides for us. Traditional societies have always revered and honored their herbal masters and turned to nature for help to promote health, wellness, and longevity, and we are proud of utilizing the wisdom of our ancestors in producing our Tuuwa’s products.
The formulations in Tuuwa are a result of many years of ancient wisdom combined with practical application in today’s modern world. Our products are all formulated to be gentle enough for normal skin as well as for those suffering from various skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, acne, rosacea, and more. Using the wrong products on skin prone to these problems can exacerbate symptoms. Our master-crafted formulas will work synergistically with your skin rather than against it.

When developing Tuuwa, we were inspired by The Story of Cosmetics, which examines the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products. The film reveals the implications for consumer and worker health and the environment, and outlines ways we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and towards safer alternatives.

The Story of Cosmetics
What Is Herbal Boost?
Many of our products contain “Herbal Boost” which is used for classification in the product name. Herbal Boost is our special blend of herbs and herbal extracts taken from primarily Traditional Chinese Medicine and also many native medicines from around the world. The blends of herbs used are combined in such a way to promote optimal wellness of the skin as well as the whole body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient holistic form of medicine most well-known in the United States for acupuncture. However, herb using is an integral part of this practice. And by herbs we mean everything from actual herbs, spices, roots, rhizomes, seeds, grains, fungi, and even certain fruits and barks! Almost all of these ingredients are taken from all parts of nature.
