Wonderful Properties of Aloe

Aloe is a succulent plant that thrives in extremely arid and hot environments. Over the course of evolution, it has developed adaptive mechanisms that allow it to survive under the scorching sun and during severe water shortages. Inside the leaves of aloe, there is a gel rich in polysaccharides—substances capable of retaining a large amount of water by swelling. After each rain or watering, the aloe leaves fill with moisture, which is gradually used up during dry periods.

In cosmetics, polysaccharide molecules form a lightweight, breathable film on the skin's surface, resembling a network in structure. This film does not clog skin pores and does not interfere with normal physiological processes. At the same time, it helps retain the moisture present in cosmetic products and facilitates the capture of water molecules from the surrounding air. This allows the skin to maintain the moisture necessary for its regular functions and, even more so, for 'emergency work,' such as healing wounds, abrasions, and burns.

Aloe gel is rich in vitamins (primarily vitamin C), trace elements, and bioactive flavonoids. Substances like barbaloin and lectins activate immune cells, control inflammation, and healing processes. Acemannans stimulate the production of new collagen fibers needed for tissue regeneration. In research studies, aloe gel significantly reduced redness, burning, and swelling typically associated with inflammation. Additionally, aloe gel enhances the antioxidant protection of tissues, making it beneficial to use cosmetics with aloe after sunbathing.

Aloe juice is one of the most versatile cosmetic ingredients suitable for people with different skin types. If the skin is prone to inflammation, the healing properties and lightweight texture of aloe are essential. For dry skin, aloe's ability to moisturize the skin for an extended period is paramount. Sensitive skin benefits from its excellent tolerance and soothing effect. Individuals with mature skin appreciate aloe for its antioxidant properties, its ability to combat photoaging, and its ability to enhance skin elasticity by stimulating collagen synthesis. In men's shaving products, aloe creates a sense of comfort and accelerates the healing of minor cuts.
