Aloe vera

The name itself sounds soothing. The moisturizing and calming value of aloe juice has been known for centuries. The juice, extracted from aloe leaves, is a source of many minerals, along with vitamins A, C, and B. It also contains glycoproteins, polysaccharides that create mucus, anthranoids, and amino acids. In cosmetology it primarily acts as the enhancer for the protective barrier of the epidermis, the supporter of the skin’s healing processes, and a softening, screening, and dryness preventing agent.
