Everyone has probably used a slathering of Aloe Vera gel after overdoing it in the sun. It’s one of the best known remedies to relieve burns and heal wounds. However, did you know that it contains many nutrients, anti-oxidants, amino acids, minerals and vitamins? And, interestingly the gel contains Gibberellins and Auxin (two hormones), which work to provide anti-inflammatory and wound healing properties that can help treat acne prone skins as well (and, the bonus is it’s non greasey).
Its nutritional and anti-oxidant benefits help speed up healing. So you can see that the Aloe Vera plant is indeed very versatile. It replenishes moisture and keeps the skin hydrated by forming a protective layer. In addition it is used in many anti ageing formulations to keep the skin firm and supple. It soothes and reduces inflammations and itchiness as well as addressing problems such as psoriasis and eczema for example. Find this superb plant in our Aloe Cleansing Cream, Vitamin Enriched Mask and Silver Gel.
