The Aloe vera plant has been known and used for centuries for its health, beauty, medicinal and skin care properties. The name Aloe vera derives from the Arabic word “Alloeh” meaning “shining bitter substance,” while “vera” in Latin means “true.” 2000 years ago, the Greek scientists regarded Aloe vera as the universal panacea. The Egyptians called Aloe “the plant of immortality.” Today, Aloe vera plant is being used for various purposes in dermatology. Aloe vera contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids and amino acids.
The leaves of Aloe vera are succulent and form a dense rosette. The gel obtained from the plant’s leaves has many uses and benefits. Aloe vera is anti-microbial and anti-oxidant and is used greatly in skincare and personal care products. Aloe stimulates fibroblast which produces the collagen and elastin fibres making the skin more elastic and less wrinkled. It also has cohesive effects on the superficial flaking epidermal cells by sticking them together, which softens the skin. The amino acids also soften hardened skin cells and zinc acts as an astringent to tighten pores. Aloe vera contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E, which are antioxidants. It also contains vitamin B12, folic acid, and choline. Antioxidant neutralizes free radicals and gives us an anti-aging effect.
Aloe vera is used in herbal toothpastes, body lotions, face packs, body scrubs and also helps soothes skin inflammation. Aloe vera helps treat skin burns and improves the texture of skin with regular application. It is also a great addition to our diet as it helps with constipation and IBS. Aloe vera provides 20 of the 22 human required amino acids and 7 of the 8 essential amino acids. It also contains salicylic acid that possesses anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Aloe vera contains vitamins A, C, and E. All three of these vitamins contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair. Aloe vera can be used as a natural hair spa or as a hair conditioner post wash. When your hair has been conditioned with aloe vera, you might see that hair breakage and loss slows down.
