Aloe is an amazing plant that can overcome almost any skin imperfections. Mentioning this ingredient on the packaging of the product practically guarantees its popularity, and the number of brands offering cosmetics with Aloe vera is increasing. Why?
How Aloe Works On The Skin
Aloe vera is declared to be almost a panacea for most skin problems, and all because this plant has a high content of useful components. It contains 18 of the 22 amino acids we need - an excellent building material for the skin that restores the structure of the epidermis.
Aloe extract also contains antioxidants, oligo-elements (calcium, zinc, phosphorus, potassium), bactericidal compounds and vitamins (A, E, C, B3, B6 and even rare for plants B12).
One of the most powerful active ingredients of Aloe is barbaloin. It effectively fights many types of bacteria and is used in the treatment of dermatological problems such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc. It has an anti-inflammatory and wound-healing effect for any burns (thermal, solar, chemical) and skin damage. Barbaloin is also a strong antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage and premature aging.
Aloe vera leaf extract is also a highly effective ingredient for skin hydration, which makes it an indispensable remedy in cases of severely dehydrated and inflamed skin.
