The amazing benefits of aloe vera
Aloe vera has been used for a wide range of purposes since the ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality.” Aloe vera is a cactus plant that grows in dry climates in parts of Africa and India, and has been used medicinally for centuries. In fact, in Ayurvedic medicine, aloe has been used to heal skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema!
Organic aloe vera is one of our key ingredients for its moisturising and nourishing properties. There are many benefits of aloe vera including hydrating your skin, and providing it with soothing and renewing benefits. Aloe vera is suitable for all skin types- even sensitive and oily skin as it moisturises the skin without giving it a greasy feel.
Aloe vera has two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin acts as a growth hormone which stimulates the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally with little scarring. Aloe is incredibly soothing and can reduce skin inflammations, blistering and itchiness, whilst helping the skin to heal more rapidly.
Aloe vera is just one of the magical ingredients in our natural skincare range that provides revitalising benefits to your skin!
