Organic Aloe Vera Gel 100g
Organic aloe vera gel has been used in cosmetics since ancient times. The aloe plant resembles a type of cactus, but is not a member of the same family. It grows in dry, arid regions around the Mediterranean.
Used to storing water in the heart of its leaves, it reveals an extraordinary gel under the plant cuticle. Aloe vera gel has been mentioned in Greek and Egyptian civilizations for over 2,000 years. It was also highly prized in Sicily, where its use was common knowledge. This is also the case in the Maghreb countries.

Aloe vera gel: for minor wounds, injuries and burns
Before taking a closer look at its moisturizing virtues, we need to go back in time. This will enable us to understand in detail the primary use of aloe vera gel. In fact, the substance is comparable to the effects of Biafine on first-degree burns. In fact, its anti-inflammatory and healing action, combined with the freshness of its gel, soothes the pain. For minor cuts or scratches, the same effect is comparable. So it was for its healing properties that aloe vera gel was highly prized before our time. However, aloe gel from the aloe plant is a substance that oxidizes very quickly. Today, natural cosmetics laboratories enrich it with vitamin E. This addition strengthens the formula of a gel already recognized for its moisturizing and repairing action.
White aloe vera liquid: a real treat for the skin
Aloe vera gel has become a very fashionable product in recent years. In fact, it often features as the poster child for moisturizing products, alongside shea or sweet almond butter. Its over-mediatization often occurs in commercials during the winter and summer seasons. Indeed, both cold weather and exposure to the sun are major causes of skin dryness. Since the dawn of time, Mediterranean peoples have used aloe juice to moisturize their skin. Extremely rich in water, this slightly viscous yet ultra-penetrating liquid helps regulate the water content of skin tissue. It helps combat skin ageing by preventing the appearance of wrinkles. It also stimulates collagen production.
Why choose organic aloe vera cosmetics rather than the plant itself?
People have always used aloe vera branches to enjoy the white gel. By cutting the branches lengthwise, the aloe sap reveals the gel, which is used in cosmetics and medicine. This primary technique is highly beneficial for collecting the raw material. On the other hand, the enzymes present at the heart of the plant tend to alter the juice very quickly. Nevertheless, harvesting aloe vera gel is a feasible and effective way of making homemade hair masks.
By harvesting the gel and blending it, its texture becomes much thicker. Simply apply directly to the hair and leave on for an hour, wrapping the hair in a towel. Aloe vera gel is particularly well-suited to people with frizzy or curly hair. Enveloping the hair fiber and penetrating right to the root, aloe vera gel will soften and, above all, help detangle hair. By using it in this way, you can dispense with cosmetic hair oil. However, for daily use, aloe vera-based face creams are still the best solution. They help preserve the product over time. What's more, its inflammatory properties are excellent for treating juvenile acne. The same applies to psoriasis and eczema.
Aloe vera gel as a drink: a new trend much appreciated by consumers
The external use of aloe vera gel is widely recognized. Recently, aloe vera gel as a drink has become very fashionable. So much so, in fact, that it's worth checking claims that are sometimes exaggerated. First and foremost, aloe vera gel is recommended for small, random cures. It helps combat heartburn, gastric acidity and constipation. As a depurative drink, it detoxifies the body by eliminating toxins and waste accumulated in the organs. Its hypoglycemic action is also attested. In fact, aloe vera gel lowers blood glucose levels. Rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, and in proteins, its antioxidant effects also have results on the skin, even when ingested orally. Other arguments often put forward on the web include its stimulating effects on the immune system and its energizing properties. However, scientific research has not yet come to any conclusions.
Making your own aloe vera juice: a good idea or a bad one?
The hype generated by YouTube videos can sometimes be counterproductive. Right now, you may find clips extolling the virtues of making your own aloe vera gel drinks. However, we recommend that you buy these juices directly from professional brands. Why do we do this? Quite simply because aloe vera leaf, which contains aloin, is toxic to the body. Experiments on rats have shown it to be carcinogenic. The extraction of aloe vera juice for consumption as a beverage is therefore subject to strict protocols by the companies marketing these beverages. Since aloe vera leaves have an irritating effect on the intestine, they must never be mixed with gel. Be sure to follow these recommendations to the letter. For cosmetic use, however, there's no problem. Investing in aloe vera gel for face and hair care pays off in the long run. This cosmetic product is an essential part of your toiletry kit.
