mimosa hostilis root bark powder
Mimosa hostilis root bark powder from Mexico. A consistent fine powder for the most efficient extractions.
Finely ground for ease of use.
MHRB is a starting material with an extraordinarily high concentration of tannins. That is why it’s worth our time grinding the root bark so finely. Tanners will love the texture, which at stages of tanning will provide not only tannin, but also friction. Tanners use blades, often obliquely, to removing fatty tissue and flesh from the hide. Afterwards, mimosa comes in to its own, “sanding” the skin and tanning as it goes. If you require a rougher texture mimosa, try our Fine Shredded Mimosa.
Similarly, anyone seeking to get the most pigment per pound (this is one of our most expensive dyes), will appreciate that the hard grind has been done. Smaller test samples are available of both our shredded and ground mimosa hostilis.
The best part in the right way.
The highest quality part of each plant (in this case root bark taken from the right depth) is used here, no other part of the plant, so there is no unnecessary plant matter to get in your way. Our customers return again and again for bespoke professional projects, they appreciate that the very fine-ground powder is so easy to work with. Remember to make use of the 30% repeat order discount you receive on your invoice.
Packed with tannins.
We supply mimosa hostilis inner root bark for tanning, dyeing and leather work. It’s absolutely packed with skin-preserving tannins. If you want to tan your own hides, this is a rich single-substance source.

This species came to the attention of scientists just over 150 years ago, although it was hardly studied until the 1980s. Now, much is known about this tree. Currently, Tepezcohuite / Jurema is used throughout the world as the subject of medical, pharmacological, preclinical and clinical research.
It is especially promising when it comes to skin care and regeneration. According to Laura Elizabeth Valencia-Gómez(2016), Mimosa hostilis has strong antifungal and antibacterial properties and it can play a large role in the regeneration of human skin cells.
Scientists are looking at the possibility of having Mimosa Hostilis processed into films that can be applied to the skin for faster regeneration after wounds or burns have occurred.
These regenerative effects is also one of the reasons that you see Mimosa root bark in an increasing number of skincremes and other cosmetic products.
