Aloe Vera is one of those herbs that has been used by humans since time immemorial. It is believed that the ancient Egyptians had used aloe Vera for medicinal as well as cosmetic purposes. Archaeological evidences suggest that this plant has been depicted in the wall carvings of that period. It is the gel in aloe Vera leaves, that is used for therapeutic as well as cosmetic purposes. Aloe Vera is utilized in its two natural forms which are the juice and the gel.
The plant is reputed for the medicinal properties associated with the sap found within its leaves. This sap, a thick, mucilaginous gel, which is 93-96% water is made up of a variety of amino acids, including a high concentration of alanine. The predominant properties of aloe are a result of the activity of amino acids on the skin. The cuticle, which covers all parts of the plant, is able to absorb moisture easily while preventing its rapid evaporation.
Aloe is able to moisturize the skin by bringing oxygen to the surface and increasing the synthesis as well as the strength of the skin tissue. Aloe improves the skin’s ability to hydrate itself, aids in the removal of dead skin cells and has an effective penetrating ability which all contribute to create an overall healthy aesthetic.
