Aloe Vera Facts and Benefits

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Aloe Vera skin care products should come from top quality Aloe Vera plants, such as the Aloe Barbadensis Miller. The Aloe Vera plant has over 75 nutrients and a stunning 200 active compounds.

The active compounds include: 12 vitamins, 20 minerals, and 18 amino acids.

It’s age-old reputation as a skin-softener, skin soother (burns), skin healer, moisturizer, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory agent is due to the numerous enzymes, nutrients, and plant compounds known as polysaccharides. Through the action of its polysaccharides, Aloe has the ability to provide the skin with water-binding abilities, thereby restoring and retaining moisture. Combined with another compound found in Aloe, lignin, the polysaccharides help Aloe Verato penetrate through the layers of the skin, allowing deep absorption. This penetrating action permits other nutrients to enter and nourish the inner layers of the skin.

 

Further research suggests that Aloe Vera increases the skin’s support protein, collagen (which keeps skin firm and youthful looking), by increasing human fibroblast cells six to eight times faster than normal cell production. Aloe Vera has also been known to be an excellent cleanser; it exfoliates old cells; cleans the pores; mops up excess oils; and removes wastes and toxins. In addition, Aloe Vera has a tightening, astringent action which reduces large pores and the possibility of blemishes. Kathy Dallas range of products such as the KD-12 skin repair creme, contains ample amounts of Aloe Vera.
