(Aloe Barbadensis)

Aloe vera is a desert plant that belongs to the lily family. It grows well in dry soils and is native to East and South Africa. The fleshy leaves are sharp and serrated with white spikes; they contain a clear gel harvested for its healing properties.

Aloe is thought to be one of the oldest remedies, noted for its healing qualities in Egyptian, Roman, Chinese, Greek, Italian, Algerian, Moroccan, Arabian, Indian and Christian history. Cleopatra is known to have massaged it into her skin and it appears in Anglo Saxon medical texts, having been brought to Europe in the 10th century.

In modern times, the healing qualities of aloe were found to be more effective than any other method in the treatment of radiation burns.

Aloe soothes itching and reduces redness; it is excellent in calming sunburn or redness caused by the cold. It softens the skin and helps to protect it.

We use aloe vera powder in our toner tabs, which becomes reconstituted in the water, making a soothing, steam infusion for the face. This is most effective when combined with tea tree in our calming Tea Tree toner tab. We’ve also used the organic powder in our Q10 toner tab to soothe the skin after shaving.

The natural organic aloe gel is freeze-dried to form a powder. We reconstitute this powder to a gel of its original strength with water.
