Perhaps one of the most commonly known benefits of Aloe Vera Gel is its ability to sooth sunburned skin. Besides merely making it less of a painful experience, studies suggest that the polysaccharides it contains might protect against non-melanoma type skin cancers by targeting pathways activated by ultra violet radiation. Ultra violet radiation suppresses the body’s natural immune responses and causes premature aging. While not able to prevent sunburns, these polysaccharides help prevent the damage of the body’s natural immunities in the epidermis. Aloe Vera has also been shown to support the healing of first and second-degree burns and is approved by the FDA and often recommended by doctors for such use.
Perhaps some of these qualities can be attributed to the fact that it absorbs into the skin almost four times faster than water – making it an excellent moisturizer and emollient. Its antimicrobial properties kill bacteria and its anti-inflammatory abilities make it a great solution for those with oily skin who may also suffer with acne, without leaving a greasy feel. The rapid stretching in skin causes small tears (commonly called “stretch marks”) that Aloe Vera gel can help heal and prevent.
The History of Aloe Vera
With no known natural populations in the world, perhaps the origin of this succulent plant was the result of the ancient mating of two genetically distinct varieties. This is done frequently in modern times to create plants stronger than either one of the parents, and to isolate and enhance beneficial properties of both. Regardless of how it came about, it has become a pillar of health and beauty. Often grown as an ornamental decoration, its advantageous uses in skin care, cosmetics, and medicine are as impressive as the plant itself is lovely and hearty.
As Baron Carl con Rokitansky was quoted in the English translation of the oldest known medical document known to exist (the Ebers Papyrus), “Those about to study Medicine, and the younger Physicians, should light their torches at the fires of the Ancients.” Obviously Rokitansky held ancient practitioners in the highest regard and knew the valuable lessons we could learn from their wisdom. The Ebers Papyrus, while written around 1,500 B.C. in ancient Egypt, is thought to be a collection of knowledge much, much older. Mentioned in this text, as well as Natural History (written by Pliny the Elder) that claims to include all of the ancient knowledge, Aloe Vera’s role in history should be taken seriously by the health conscious individual.
Incorporate the above-mentioned benefits in everything from your soap making to your lotions, shampoos, conditioners, lip balms, and massage oils. Simply mix the powder in during the liquid portion of your homemade creation. Easier to store and possessing a longer shelf life, its great for quick mixing with water to produce an Aloe Vera “juice” or gel. It contains vitamins C and B, and is commonly marketed as an internal health supplement. While scientists are yet to find definitive evidence of the efficacy of ingesting aloe, studies continue with high hopes. However the healing and antimicrobial properties have been proven beneficial, not only on the skin, but also when used as a natural toothpaste and mouthwash.
The powder form provides a more economical way to package, transport and store for those looking to use bulk quantities. It also provides additional resourcefulness for the “do-it-yourselfer” simply looking to use what they make.
As a Natural Health Supplement
In either form this product will bring value to you, or your customers lives. This hearty plant thrives in dry and abnormally difficult environments and developed natural solutions to counter severe everyday scenarios (i.e. harsh UV light, dryness, invasive foreign entities, etc.) Incorporate aloe’s natural power into your everyday routines and further enjoy the knowledge that you are harnessing nature’s solutions to everyday problems.
For Health Vitality
Be diligent in your research and don’t be tricked into believing exaggerated claims (like curing cancers, healing ulcers, treatment for diabetes etc.) by those hoping to sell you their product at an inflated price. Aloe Vera is moisturizing, antimicrobial, and antifungal and is suitable for all skin types. There is no need for exaggeration. Use it to firm and moisturize your skin, sooth irritation, and repair minor imperfections. Many commercially available products have already incorporated aloe, but also contain artificial colors and fragrances. When making your own, you can be confident that what you are creating for yourself, your family and even your customers, is a pure all natural product that begins with pure ingredients.

I use this in insect repellent, body cooling mists,sunburn relief spray. I have also added some to M&P soaps for people who have dry sensitive skin & for infants. it is an easy product to work with. the main reason I like using it in different things is because I know it works wonders on many skin problems & it's natural so there are no chemical side affects. great product, have ordered it before & will do so again, excellent pricing too.

This has no smell and it goes on like water, but soaks into your skin quickly. I am using it as a straight moisturizer, but can't wait to add it to my homemade lotions and stuff.

I am a mail carrier. The sun was wreaking havoc on my skin. Starting a before and after regimen. Soooo sad it took me this long to figure out a remedy for sunburn and dryness.

Great price...super good quality. I use it often in my lotion to help repair daily skin damage (living in the hot, sunny desert with high UV). It repairs sunburns by the next day!

I bought purchased this item as it was part of a recipe for salt scrub for feet, sugar scrub for face and I was hoping to use the ingredients wo salt or sugar as a super dry skin night cream. I tried each ingredient individually on my skin and was so excited with the results I can't wait to make the recipe. The price was far less expensive than another company even with the shipping.

I use aloe in a line of acne care and this particular brand is very good quality. By adding it to my acne prevention hydrosol, it has boosted the calming and bacterial fighting qualities of it. In turn, I am getting even better feedback from my customers. I am very pleases with this Aloe!

I used it to make a wonderful sunburn soothing product, and it worked as well as the MUCH more expensive liquid I bought at the local health food store!
