We bring you the most up-to-date scientific results on Aloe Vera Gel for Acne. Our resident research scientist has drawled the journals and found out the truth about how good the miracle plant is for the dreaded Acne. The bane of your life. So how can it help you?
The most common treatment for acne prescribed by doctors are topical retinoids (Vitamin A Cream to you and me) and guess what, a recent study has shown that if you add Aloe Vera Gel to this treatment it is even more effective! Wow! We always knew that Aloe Vera is good for skin healing (and so did the ancients – it has been used for millennia), but having it proved by science is really cool.
Earlier studies have already shown us that Aloe Vera gel is good for scar healing - this study reported wound healing in acne patients happened an incredible 72 hours faster with AV gel than without it. So there is real scientific proof that natural acne treatments including Aloe Vera can be highly effective.
Another study has concluded that Aloe Vera gel increased the effectiveness of Ocimum gratissimum oil lotions for Acne vulgaris and the combo was even better than 1% Clindamycin cream (a typical acne treatment containing antibiotics). Ocimum gratissimum or clove basil oil is an essential oil used in aromatherapy.
In addition, the University of Maryland has stated in a review of the scientific literature that the use of Aloe Vera gel on the skin is widely accepted to be safe, although it shouldn’t be used on open wounds.
PRECAUTION: Some people have been shown to be allergic, so test on a small area of skin first. Don’t use if you have been allergic to garlic, onions or members of the Lily family in the past.
