Aloe Vera is a plant found primarily in the tropical and subtropical areas of the world. It has been used for centuries for its healing properties and can be used internally or externally.
Aloe Vera in cosmetics
Naturally contained in aloe vera are several anti-inflammatory agents such as salicylates, polysaccharides, magnesium lactate and C-glucosylchromone. Aloe Vera provides moisture and has an antibacterial effect and can support wound healing. In skin care, it can be used pure as aloe vera gel or incorporated into skin care products as a juice or extract.
Aloe Vera as a food
Taken internally, as a juice, aloe vera is said to help with digestive problems and to help strengthen the immune system and reduce inflammation. However, taking high doses or long-term use is not recommended or should only be done in consultation with a doctor.
