Aloe Vera is an ancient herb used since more than 3000 years for curing different akin and related ailments. Among the many plant ingredients that are in use today, the Aloe Vera is one of the most versatile. It is an ancient botanical discovery. Although it is considered to be a member of the lily family, the Aloe Vera is very much like cactus in appearance. It is a native of the arid region, but is now being cultivated in many parts of the world. Like a cactus plant, it is fleshy and succulent and yields a thick gel-like juice.

This plant has a unique moisture retentive ability and powerful healing properties. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks used Aloe Vera extract to heal cuts and wounds on the skin. Ancient records also mention its value in suppressing pain. What appears to be an important feature is its effect on skin cells, as it helps the regeneration of new cells.

One of the main properties of Aloe Vera is its ability to seal off the loss of moisture from the skin. Thus, it is an ideal moisturiser and has been used with much success on dry, dehydrated and mature skin. Cleansing gels, containing Aloe Vera, have helped to restore health to acutely dehydrated skins and soothe sensitive conditions.

Another quality of Aloe Vera, is its action on the dead epithelial cells on the skin surface. Aloe extracts help to soften these dead cells, aiding their removal from the surface, leaving the skin smoother. The removal of dead cells improves the functions of the skin. It also has an astringent action and tightens the skin, thus protecting it from early ageing. It has also shown remarkable results on sun-damaged skin, with its moisturising, softening and healing actions
