Aloe Vera

Aloe vera as a natural healing gel and beauty aid, is traced back to ancient Egypt where it was documented in use in 3500 BC. Ancient Greeks used aloe to treat battle wounds and Egyptian women rubbed the gel on their skin to preserve their beauty. Legend has it that procuring aloe vera plants to treat the wounded solders was the driving reason behind Alexander the Great’s invasion of the island of Socotra.

Externally and internally, aloe vera heals, protects and repairs with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anesthetic, and cell rejuvenating properties. It contains 18 amino acids and is packed with minerals, enzymes, powerful anti-oxidants and vitamins, including calcium, zinc, magnesium, and vitamins A, E, C and B12. It is used to treat puffy eyes, to pump up the lips, and for healing burns and wounds. It is also ideal in moisturizers.

Anti-bacterial compounds in aloe vera treat surface skin infections and prevent infections around wounds and open sores.

Anti-fungal elements treat fungal infections and protect wounds during the healing process.

Anesthetic properties in aloe help to ease the pain of a wound or burn while stimulating healing and cell repair.

Aloe vera both stimulates the healing process with complex sugars, and it repairs the damaged site with plant-based hormones that stimulate cell rejuvenation.

Long used to treat traumatized skin after sunburns burns and damage, aloe vera has a lot to offer already healthy skin. The cell stimulating elements encourage healthy cell growth to keep you face and body looking and feeling healthy.

Any small abrasions and damage sites respond to the healing elements of aloe vera for a smooth complexion and good overall skin health. Add aloe vera to your skin care routine and enjoy the beauty serum used by the great beauties of Ancient Egypt.
