Aloe Vera gel is renowned for its skin soothing properties, and is widely used to help calm common skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, dry skin, sunburn and insect bites.
The gel can be found inside the plant’s leaf, and is packed with 75 nutrients including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and Essential Fatty Acids. Aloe Vera gel is so good for the skin, because it acts as an anti-inflammatory and has excellent hydrating, anti-bacterial and restorative properties.
It also helps to repair the skin by stimulating cell production and supporting collagen.It contains a substance called lignin, which penetrates the skin’s layers and carries nutrients to the deeper layers where the skin cells are renewed. It’s also a source of salicylic acid, which helps to clear away dead skin cells, and anthraquinones, which help to reduce the formation of hyperpigmentation including age spots.
