Aloe Vera Extract – Aloe Barbadensis Leaf
Aloe Vera is widely known as a very nutritious, moisturizing ingredient which also provides great healing to damaged and inflamed skin. Although it contains only trace amounts of vitamin B, C, and folic acid, it seems to penetrate well into the skin in any form. It can be used on it’s own or mixed into a wide variety of products ranging from sprays, gels, soaps, shampoos and creams.
There is much confusion for the consumer with so many types and forms of aloe ingredients on the market. Pure aloe has a limited shelf life and should be refrigerated to extend shelf life.
