While I’m constantly on the lookout for new ingredients for BIOTONE products, I also depend on ones that have stood the test of time. Aloe Vera is among the tried and true. It’s been used for thousands of years. No wonder the Egyptians called it “the plant of immortality.” Ask any consumer, and you’ll probably find they rate Aloe Vera as a top treatment for sunburn because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
While it looks like a cactus because of its fleshy and thorny leaves, the plant is in fact 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 find a gel that can be applied to the skin for a number of healing and moisturizing benefits.
I’ve always been enthusiastic about Aloe Vera because it provides a range of antioxidants, including beta carotene, vitamins C and E, to help improve the skin’s firmness and keep it hydrated. As a result of its hydrating properties, Aloe Vera helps to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
