Aloe Vera

by Sarah Wilson from Scentual Body Skincare

Aloe Vera is a succulent plant with many medicanal uses. I have added this super plant to many of my skin care products because it has many skin friendly attributes.
Aloe Vera is very soothing, mildly astringent and is filled to the brim with vitamins, amino acids and nutrients. It is the perfect remedy for minor burns, cuts and abrasions. It is quickly absorbed by the skin, making it ideal for those with oilier skin complexions. It is also very high in Lignin which acts as a carrier to help other ingredients such as vitamins penetrate through the skin.Aloe Vera is also very cleansing, which is why I have added it to my Body Wash and Foaming Cleanser.

Aloe Vera contains the following vitamins:

  • Vitamin A (Beta-Carotene)
  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin)
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Choline
  • Folic Acid

Vitamins A, C and E provide Aloe Vera’s antioxidant activity and neutralise free radicals.
Aloe Vera has many beneficial enzymes. Some of these enzymes are known anti-inflammatory when applied to the skin. As well as enzymes, the hormones in Aloe Vera are wound healing and anti- inflammatory. The salycilic acid in Aloe Vera is antibacterial and helps to break down dead skin cells in a mild exfoliating way.
As you can see, this powerful natural healer is a must in anyone’s skin care regime. I have developed a new Aloe Rich Serum for those with oilier skin types or for those wanting an extra vitamin boost under their moisturiser. I also have men using it as an After Shave serum to soothe their inflamed skin immediately after shaving. I only use Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel so that the purest, unadulterated Aloe Vera is put on your skin.

Enjoy all the benefits of this miracle plant in the following Scentual Body products:

*Foaming Cleanser 100ml
*Body Wash 250ml
