Aloe Vera Gel is extracted from the leaves of a thick cactus-like botanical named Aloe Barbadensis Miller also known as aloe vera plant. The ancient Egyptians had nicknamed this plant as “the plant of eternity” because of its healing and beautifying benefits.
The Egyptians would use the gel extracted from the aloe vera plants to soothe skin dryness, sunburns, and for embalming rituals. They believed the purifying properties of aloe vera gel would magnify and prolong beauty.
Throughout history, other cultures and communities around the world have used Aloe Vera Gel for its various benefits. The Indians, Chinese, and Middle Eastern communities have been using this gel to fade away the appearance of scars, calm skin inflammation, and enhance the overall health of the skin and hair for centuries. Today, Aloe Vera Gel is an active ingredient in many Skincare and Hair Care solutions.
The Aloe Vera plant is native to tropical regions of Africa, but its cultivation has now been spread all over the world. It creates a gel which is clear, odorless, and viscous. Aloe Vera is composed of 90% Water. It also contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, healthy fatty acids, and enzymes which all help with moisturization.
Aloe vera exhibits hydrating, purifying, soothing, and nourishing properties that improves skin's health in various ways. Majestic Pure's Aloe Vera Gel contains fresh aloe vera gel with no added color, fragrance, or alcohol. Here are some benefits of using aloe vera gel for your skin's health:
SOOTHES SKIN ITCHINESS AND IRRITATION
Itchy skin is very uncomfortable and irritating for everybody. But scratching the skin leads to redness, rashes, and inflammation which is a big no no! 😒
Skin itchiness can occur in response to many reasons, such as dryness, medications, environmental toxins, insect bites, and infections. Aloe vera gel contains polysaccharides in its composition, which helps hydrate and soothe skin.
Applying Aloe Vera Gel helps comfort skin irritation, itchiness, and keeps the skin hydrated and healthy. Polysaccharides promotes water retention in the skin and protects it against environmental toxins and irritants that cause itchiness.
MOISTURIZES THE SKIN
Anyone who suffers from dry skin knows that moisturizing is an important factor for healthy and strong skin.
The skin's outer layer called epidermis is comprised of a fine film of lipids and water. The lipids and water keeps the skin moisturized, smooth and soft. This film also protects the skin from UV rays, toxins, free radicals, and bacteria. When the epidermis receives insufficient hydration, it becomes dry, which leads to irritation, cracks, and flaky patches on the skin.
Aloe vera gel has vitamins A, B, C, D, and E that are known to boost skin's moisture levels, keeping it fresh, soft, and smooth. Furthermore, aloe vera gel contains minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and zinc that provide hydration to the skin and soothe dryness.
HELPS FADE THE APPEARANCE OF BLEMISHES AND DARK SPOTS
Dark spots, blemishes, and discoloration can appear anywhere on the skin due to a variety of reasons. Regular exposure to UV rays, acne, hyperpigmentation, environmental damage, aging, and hormonal changes are among the common reasons for scarring and dark spots.
Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that cleanse, purify, and clarify the skin's texture. Its purifying properties help lighten the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. It protects the skin against germs and bacteria that cause breakouts. Moreover, aloe vera gel contains a compound, aloesin, in its composition that is known to reduce the overproduction of melanin. When the skin produces more melanin, it darkens acne scars, spots, and patches on the skin, making them more noticeable than the surrounding areas.
PROMOTES SKIN'S SUPPLENESS
Healthy and youthful-looking skin requires a sufficient amount of hydration. Lack of moisture causes dryness on the skin's surface, making it appear dull, worn out, and unhealthy. As we get older, the production of collagen and elastin fibers begin to decrease, causing the skin to lose elasticity, firmness, and strength.
Not only does aloe vera gel promote the skin's suppleness and elasticity with its hydrating properties, but it is additionally high in Vitamin C, which is known to increase collagen production. Aloe vera gel’s composition also includes Zinc Oxide, which tightens your skin, pores, and keeps it looking youthful and refreshed.
SOOTHES ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Acne develops when the buildup of dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells and excess oils clog your pores. Clogged pores cause inflammation and redness, which leads to acne breakouts. Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that exfoliate the skin, drawing out dirt and bacteria. Its purifying properties cleanse the skin's surface, keeping it healthy and clean. In addition, aloe vera gel contains salicylic acid, which helps shed dead skin cells from the skin's outer layer, revealing new and radiant skin. It is also known to regulate the sebum secretions, which prevents the skin from future breakouts.
