There was loads of confusing and sometimes 'Dodgy' information out there on Aloe.
So the crew from 'Team AloeVille', spent months researching, ploughing through the available studies, and found out the low-down on Aloe.
What we found re-enforced what we initially thought, which is that Aloe is truly a natural healing pharmacy in itself.
Also known as Aloe barbadensis, the easy to grow, drought tolerant ‘Lily of the Desert’ has been used on the skin for centuries for its softening and moisturizing qualities.
You probably come across this plant every day without knowing it. It is added to tissues, it is in the strip of gel on your razor and more than likely in your hand soap, moisturizers and sunscreen.
Cosmetic companies commonly add the cooling gel from the leaves to products such as makeup, shaving cream, shampoos and conditioners. It is also used as a flavouring in foods and drinks, and is sold as a health giving juice.
Aloe Vera has far more healing properties than just skin treatment though. It is currently being studied for its potential as a drug for HIV, for Cancer, for Diabetes, for IBS and other Gastric Problems.
It is also being used as a possible source of biodiesel fuel. How's that for a plant that could save the planet?
