Aloe is one of the most nutrient-rich plants on earth, containing nearly 200 active ingredients, including vitamin A, C, E, magnesium, zinc, folic acid and many amino acids. Its juicy leaves are 96% water.
Aloe is considered to be one of the oldest medicines. It soothes itching and reduces redness, as well as perfectly soothes sunburns or redness caused by cold. It deeply moisturises the skin, nourishes and calms.
Thanks to the presence of lignins, the ingredients contained in aloe penetrate into deeper layers of the epidermis (four times faster than water). The most important ingredients of aloe juice are polysaccharides – able to retain large amounts of water.
Legends say that Cleopatra regularly used aloe in her body care regime.
