Most of us met aloe disguised as the sticky green gel our mom used to take away the sting after an hour too long in the sun. Aloe and treating sunburn go hand-in- hand, but the power of aloe for skin health and beauty extends far beyond a day at the beach.
The ancient Chinese and Egyptians used aloe to treat burns, wounds and fever. Legend tells us that Alexander the Great conquered the island of Socotra for possession of its aloe groves, filling carts with the plants to have ready for battle.
Aloe is high in vitamins and minerals, amino and fatty acids, polysaccharides and enzymes – in total more than 200 active components that make it perfect for a wide range of remedies and treatments. The small, cactus-like plant truly lives up to its almost miraculous history. The anti-inflammatory and healing properties of aloe are perfect to help treat acne, diminish the appearance of scars and blemishes like sun and age spots, and to tighten and moisturize the sensitive skin on your face and neck.
