Aloe vera



The traditional medicinal plant Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis) belongs to the aloe genus Subfamily of the asphodel family (Asphodelaceae) and is also known as desert lily. Its thick, grey-green, rosette-shaped leaves store water and nutrients in their tissues, making Aloe Vera a true survivor in hot and dry areas. The short teeth on the edges of the leaves are characteristic of their leaves, which can grow up to 90 centimeters in size. During its flowering period, the plant forms a long-stemmed inflorescence around which, depending on the variety, orange, yellow or red flowers are arranged. Aloe Vera is believed to have its origins in Sudan and the Arabian Peninsula. Today it is grown for commercial purposes in many tropical and subtropical climates. With the USA and Mexico as the largest aloe vera exporters, Central America, Africa and Spain (especially the Canary Islands) are considered typical growing areas.



Aloe vera was already revered in ancient times for its wound-healing properties. The juice obtained from the leaves of the plant contains numerous valuable nutrients, such as polysaccharides, enzymes, amino acids as well as antioxidants, minerals and vitamins and is known for its moisture-preserving and regenerating effects. The ingredients of aloe vera strengthen the skin's protective mechanisms and have a calming, cooling and decongestant effect. In addition, the skin appears more elastic and resilient. The juice also has a proven anti-inflammatory and cell-stimulating effect and can therefore be used to support wound healing. The all-rounder aloe vera is now used in the production of cosmetics, food and dietary supplements and in pharmaceuticals. Because of its highly concentrated nutrient density, aloe vera is also an essential component of our cosmetic active ingredient products.
