Aloe Vera Products

The aloe vera plant, often referred to as the ‘miracle plant’ has been used by man for over 4000 years due to its remarkable healing properties. A collection of herbal remedies used by the Ancient Egyptians in 3500BC was discovered in a papyrus by George Ebers in 1862. It was also used by ancient Chinese, Indian, Greek and Roman Cultures. Aristotle persuaded Alexander the Great to capture the Island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean to get its rich supply of aloe to heal his wounded soldiers in 333BC.

The aloe vera plant resembles a cactus plant but is actually a member of the Lily family. When mature, the inner gel is harvested, preserved and bottled to produce a product which is as close to the natural inner plant juice as is possible.

Aloe vera gel contains at least 75 known ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, natural pain killers, antibacterial, fungal and viral properties. It can be taken internally for its nutritional, anti-inflammatory and immune balancing effect or combined with other ingredients to produce topical creams and lotions to nourish and improve the condition of the skin.
