What are its properties?
External use: It's colourless and clear gel contains an impressive set of different molecules: polysaccharides, tannins, steroids, organic acids, vitamins, minerals and even proteins.
It is traditionally used in producing countries to act against burins, sunburns, grazes, insect bites, cuts, dermatosis, sores, chapping and sprains. Repeated application of Aloe Vera calms irritation, burns and pain. It speeds up healing and provides an immediate cooling effect. Scientific research shown that Aloe Vera hydrates the skin thanks to its high water content, and particularly because it allows the skin to retain its moisture.
Aloe Vera nourishes and regenerates the skin and fight against ageing: Aloe Vera penetrates the skin much more easily than water. It easily crosses the epidermis to nourish the dermis and hypodermis and activate microcirculation of the blood as a result of its wealth of vitamins and amino acids. Consequently, it speeds up production of new cells. Thanks to its proteolytic enzymes, Aloe Vera eliminates dead cells which clog up pores and asphyxiate the skin.
It then assists the growth of new cells thanks to many nutritious elements it contains. Therefore, it acts against stretch marks, birthmarks and liver spots and blotches.
Aloe Vera protects the skin: The normal pH of the skin is slightly acidic allowing it to resist the variety of microorganisms that may fight it. Aloe Vera restores equilibrium to the skin's pH through its own pH which is polysaccharide and amino acid content. The polysaccharides present in Aloe may explain its capacity to fight ageing. By strengthening the epidermis, the complexion rejuvenates and the skin is thus better protected against external attacks.
