Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) - Organic

Organic Aloe Vera Gel | Aloe Vera Properties

Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) - Organic

Aloe Vera Juice has an incredible reputation as a potent healer of the skin and internal surface linings, which is legendary and well documented.  It comes from the same plant family as garlic and as such can be used both internally (being eaten or drunk) or externally (by being applied).

First discovered by the Egyptians over 5000 years ago, it was reported that Cleopatra bathed in Aloe Vera juice to anti-age and mentions of its healing powers have been found in the bible.

aloe vera plant

 

The gel (juice) of the plant can be used in skincare products, giving them soothing and healing properties which are particularly beneficial for those with dry skins or eczema.  When eaten it is particularly beneficial for those with digestive issues, such as IBS, although experts recommend not consuming it every day.

We use aloe juice prepared by a patented process which conserves all the valuable constituents of the freshly cut leaf juice, including vitamins C, E and pro-vitamin A, minerals, all 8 amino acids (which are the building blocks of proteins) and enzymes, which give it the ability to reduce the symptoms of allergy.

At appropriate concentrations this active form penetrates deep into the skin layers to moisturise, soothe, heal injured tissues and stimulate fresh new cell growth.

Known for its quick action on burns, it is exceptional for all skin disorders, minor injuries, scar and age line reduction and is a key ingredient in many of our products.

You may find when searching ingredients lists for Aloe Vera that it is often referred to as both Aloe Vera juice and Aloe Vera Gel.  In this instance they both mean the same thing – both refer to the gel that is squeezed from the leaf of the plant.  A product CALLED Aloe Vera Gel (i.e. for hand care) may not be the same thing though, it is important to check the ingredients list to get an idea of the percent of Aloe Vera in the product.
