Why Aloe Vera?
First documented some 6,00 years ago by the Egyptians who regarded it as a sacred plant, today aloe vera is grown in warm climates all over the world, and particularly in North Africa, South America and the Mediterranean region. Its main advantage resides in its capacity to store a large amount of water in its leaves which also contain dozens of medicinal compounds with multiple properties. However, for its moisturizing properties, aloe vera gel, which is extracted from the plant's leaves using a specific technique, is the ingredient that is mainly used in the cosmetics sector.
What Are The Benefits?
Given its high water content, aloe vera gel is renowned as a moisturizer. Better still, it hydrates the complexion without any risk of that much-dreaded shiny look that is often associated with oil-based products, and it is also long-lasting and deep penetrating. All in all, it is an ideal solution for dry and dehydrated skin.
