¤ Aloe vera contains vitamins, enzymes, polysaccharides, steroids, minerals, amino acids, and trace elements. Aloe vera gel is moisturizing, nourishing, astringent, toning, firming, cleansing, softening and de-odorising.
¤ With a pH similar to that of skin, it does not upset - and can restore - the skin's natural pH.
¤ It provides water and accompanying essential elements to skin tissues, while at the same time enabling the skin to keep this moisture in; it also boosts the skin's own ability to hydrate itself.
¤ Due to its proteolytic enzymes, it eliminates dead cells from the epidermis, allowing the skin to breathe and improving capillary irrigation.
¤ It activates growth of dermal fibroblasts, cells that are involved in collagen production. It thus has a firming effect on cutaneous tissue and slows down the appearance of wrinkles.
¤ It soothes sunburn and minor irritations, and can be used to treat cuts and mild burns
