Everyone has heard of Aloe Vera, it’s an ingredient that has been formulated into every available product, from food to skincare. It has been praised over the years for its ability to deliver such impressive skin results and with a great deal of research behind it, we are able to establish its skincare benefits. I have been growing Aloe in my house for decades. The thick, gel-like substance stored inside the aloe vera leaves contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Aloe barbaensis leaf juice is a great moisturizer, anti-bacterial and has many anti-inflammatory properties making it a potent ingredient for healing wounds, reducing any signs of sunburn and helping dehydrated skin to lock in moisture.
There are also plenty of enzymes, vitamins and minerals enriching this ingredient allowing it to help the skin combat free radical damage and restore the natural protective barrier of the skin enabling it to be fully functioning. This gel also contains a substance known as polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants known for helping to combat the growth of bacteria in the human body.
