Everything You Need To Know About Aloe Vera
The benefits of Aloe Vera in your skincare routine are nothing new, as knowledge of the plants abilities being known and utilised by people for thousands of years. Typically, Aloe is found within the inner part of the Aloe leaf and comes in two consistencies, with the gel texture being the most popular and widely used.However, it is surprising that many don’t know what the top three benefits of Aloe Vera are and why we use it in a lot of our products here at Uni Organics.
As many have known, Aloe is most widely used as a healing treatment - applied to burns, cuts and irritations. The nutrients within Aloe and its anti-inflammatory properties help create a protective barrier on the skin and speed up the healing process. The gel has been used for many years as a topical treatment to external skin problems. The gel is also antibacterial, meaning it works well at keeping blemishes and wounds clean as well as helping them to heal.
Aloe is a go-to moisturiser that will leave your skin feeling moisturised without a greasy, slippery feel. Aloe sinks deep into the skin faster than a cream, proving a great moisturising alternative for people with very oily skin.
Made of up to 96% water, Aloe gel also contains various antioxidants that are able to help improve skin elasticity and firmness. This helps ageing skin that has lost its lift and suppleness.
UniOrganics has made Aloe Vera the base for the majority of our products unlike the majority of skincare products on the market who use water as their first, and sometimes primary, ingredient.
We have chosen to use Aloe Vera as it absorbs into the skin and hydrates the deep layers much better than water can because of it’s ability to sink faster rather than sit on the surface.
Additionally, its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties add an extra dimension within to our already fabulous products. Have a look at some of our products that contain Aloe Vera’s and it’s fantastic benefits including Good Day Face - Hydrating Day Cream, Fresh Focus Gentle Face Exfoliator and the Restore Anti-Age Face Serum.
