The benefits of Aloe Vera as a base ingredient in your organic skin care.
Aloe Vera (Barbadensis) is excellent to use for its health, beauty, medicinal and skin care properties. Aloe Vera, “the miracle plant” or “natural healer” helps to heal wounds and is perfect for applying topically to burns, abrasions, psoriasis and insect bites. Aloe acts as an analgesic, working to help relieve the pain of wounds. It feels especially good to cut a stem of aloe, place it in the fridge and rub it on sunburnt skin – the immediate soothing effect feels like an absolute lifesaver. Aloe is also an antipruritic: A substance that relieves or prevents itching. Aloe Vera is an astringent: which causes the contraction of body tissues, typically used to reduce bleeding from minor abrasions.
Most of us have an Aloe Vera plant in our backyards and using the Aloe gel, straight from the plant is convenient, cutting off a leaf, washing the aloin off the top and applying it directly to the skin.

NOTE – Aloe Vera 99% to 99.5% water.
If you are a label reader, you probably noticed that a popular industry norm is to use a lot of water to bulk-out skincare products. As much as 80% of the overall ingredient content can be water. Water is abundant, and it is cheap making it an excellent base from a manufacturer’s point of view. BUT, Aloe Vera is, incredibly, 99% to 99.5% water! Infusions and extracts that are at the base of many products that are not oil or alcohol-based require water to make infusions. Water also carries nutrients that oil cannot give. Minerals, polysaccharides, many antioxidants, and tannins are all water soluble. Toners and hydrosols are infused with water. Always choose facial mask products that come in a dry form. The ingredients will stay fresh longer, and they do not have any water or preservatives in them, which we love!
