The Benefits of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has always and will forever be a holy grail product. Whether you need to soothe a terrible sunburn, or need to moisturize your skin, aloe vera can do it all. 

There are so many benefits that aloe vera can provide your skin, so let's dive into a few specifics;

What is Aloe Vera?

The aloe vera plant contains triangular leaves composed of three layers, with the innermost layer containing a clear gel that is made up 99% water, and over 75 active ingredients. 

The juice of the inner leaf is removed from the rind, either by machine or by hand, and is cold-pressed to keep the active ingredients active and integrates the aloe into products. 

So, what can aloe vera do?

Aloe Vera adds moisture to the skin

Since aloe vera gel is mostly water, it helps to hydrate the skin without that post-application of feeling greasy. It helps to lock in moisture while also acting as a glue that makes the top layer of skin cells stick together, ultimately smoothing and softening your skin.

It can soothe skin conditions 

Skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis signal general inflammation and a compromised skin barrier, which can both be helped by aloe vera.

Additionally, skin that is cracked is more prone to bacterial infections, and aloe vera can be considered an antiseptic against bacteria.

It's safe for sensitive skin

As aloe vera is a naturally derived product, it is great for sensitive skin. It can help treat and relieve the pain of a sunburn, soothe irritated skin, and absorb into the skin for maximum hydration.
