In our herbal skincare and beauty products (herballyradiant), we use aloe (botanical name: Aloe Barbadensis) extensively because of its excellent healing and regenerating properties. Aloe gel is the clear, jelly-like substance extracted from the inner part of the aloe plant leaf. Aloe is also used in medicinal products. Here we can just go through its application and efficacy in beauty products.
The chemicals in aloe gel are able to increase circulation in the tiny blood vessels in the skin, and kill bacteria. Application of aloe promotes healthier skin, strengthens immune system of skin cells. It can hydrate through three epidermal layers of the skin. Thus, it provides the benefit of driving nutrients and other constituents into the deeper layers of the skin, which promote epidermal health. The changes in the skin as a result of application of aloe might even help skin disorder like psoriasis.
Aloe is an indispensable part of any herbal dispensary. It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral compounds that help prevent wound infections and speed heeling up process. It also has immune-stimulating and anti-inflammatory compounds, and it stimulates collagen synthesis and skin regeneration after sun damage or burn. It is also rich in vitamins C and E, besides minerals like zinc.
Among specific uses and benefits of aloe, we find that it :
i)provides hydration to the skin,
ii)promotes healthy, refreshed and attractive appearance,
iii)reduces appearance of damaged skin,
iv)protects skin from prolonged exposure to sun and other external pollutants,
v)strengthens and regenerates healthy skin cells, preventing premature aging of skin, reduces appearance of lines and wrinkles,
vi)effectively improves skin damaged due to acne or due to other skin disorders.
(Consumers must bear in mind the fact that aloe-based products (like face creams, lotions, cleansers) in most of the retail outlets contain less than 1%-10% aloe vera. However, it has been reported after studies that a minimum of 30% concentration of aloe is essential to derive optimum benefits out of it.)
