Aloe Vera has a very long tradition as a medicinal plant, it can be used for sunburns, skin irritation and as an anti-aging agent. Aloe vera is considered moisturizing and its ingredients stimulate cell regeneration and collagen production in the skin. Thus, it can prove to be an effective aid against premature skin aging.
The aloe vera plant contains over 160 active substances, vitamins and minerals, enzymes, amino acids, salicylic acid, saponins etc. which however only develop after the plant is 3 to 5 years old - this is the time we give our aloe vera plants. For this reason, this hand harvested ingredient, is a valuable component of our products. Amino acids are the smallest components of proteins and are responsible for many processes in the body.
The aloe vera plant also contains an active ingredient called acemannan. This active ingredient has very healing properties, which is why aloe vera is also very suitable for sunburn or inflammatory processes such as acne or skin irritations. Aloe vera can also help to counteract the growth of fungus, internal and external.
