Due to its numerous beneficial substances, aloe vera is often used as an ingredient in organic cosmetics. It has been discovered that its extraordinary powers are not due to the single active ingredients but rather to the fact that they work in mutual synergy. In medicine, the concept of synergy can be expressed as follows: 2+2=5. This is to say that the properties of all the active ingredients present in aloe vera are not simply to be added to each other. Instead, they enhance each other’s benefits. Aloe vera has a wide array of cosmetic properties: wound-healing, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, soothing, refreshing and antibiotic. This is why it can be used for burns, acne or impure skin, but also in case of dry skin, dermatitis or psoriasis. Its polysaccharides and antioxidants feature a high moisturizing and elasticizing power, thus making it ideal to prevent and counter the signs of time.
