With its fleshy and thorny leaves, many believe the Aloe Vera is a cactus.  But Aloe Vera is actually a member of the Lily family. Like other succulents, its stays moist by closing its pores to prevent moisture loss. Slice open the lower part of the Aloe Vera leaf and you’ll find a gel that can be applied to the skin for a number of healing and moisturizing benefits.

Aloe Vera is used to treat sunburn because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Aloe Vera also is used in a range of skin care products because it contains several antioxidants, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E, to help improve the skin’s firmness and keep it hydrated.

Beautiful Skin says that Aloe is the perfect hydrating ingredient because of its high water, mineral and vitamin content. It deeply hydrates and nourishes skin. It also can harness water on the skin's surface and prevent it from evaporating.

You’ll find Aloe Vera or Aloe Vera Oil in many of our BIOTONE massage products, including:
