Aloe vera is arguably the most popular natural additive in the beauty industry. It has long been revered for its medicinal powers, and it is definitely worth the hype. Incorporate this potent plant extract into your body care routine and watch how its natural benefits transform your skin from head to toe.
Aloe is one of the best ingredients for dry skin. This succulent botanical is native to dry climates; therefore, it uniquely pulls in hydration from the atmosphere and holds it close. Its gel-like composition swells to lock in long-lasting moisture, leaving skin plump and hydrated. Combining aloe with a decadent plant oil like shea butter locks hydration deep into cells and seals it in, preventing water loss.
Aloe is packed full of vitamins A (beta-carotene), C, and E - natural antioxidants which protect the skin and fight signs of aging. Powerful aloe enzymes help to reduce excessive inflammation to soothe redness, irritation, and eczema.
