Aloe, aloe, aloe, what's all this 'ere?

    The reason I'm going on about this is that we have obtained a fresh supply of top-quality Aloe Vera gel, which we are offering at £4.50 for a 60g jar. We also have Aloe Vera in a moisturising cream base at £5.50 per 60g jar. Both can be found in the menu on the Homepage under Skin Care, creams. The benefits of this remarkable plant are all explained below. The only remaining question is: who is Vera?

    Aloe vera truly is a miracle plant. Grown in drier climates such as those of Africa and India, this herbal remedy can provide natural relief for a variety of conditions including dry skin and severe acne. The beneficial part of the aloe vera plant can be found in the clear, sappy substance hidden in its long, thick leaves. 

    Benefits of Aloe Vera for the face:

    MoisturizeBecause aloe vera possesses excellent moisturizing capabilities it is commonly used as a daily skin cream. It is excellent for facial use, especially for women who use makeup frequently, as it effectively cleans and softens the skin. The moisturizing effect works for both men and women.

    Treat Acne The antimicrobial properties of aloe vera also make it an excellent option for acne treatment. Not only will aloe vera help to prevent acne, but it also has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce the skin inflammation caused by acne.

    Fight Skin AgingApplying aloe vera gel to your face regularly will help to diminish the lines and wrinkles associated with ageing and loss of elasticity in the skin. This is due to the simple fact that aloe vera contains both vitamin C and E, both of which are known to be vital for healthy skin and also help to improve natural firmness, leaving your skin soft, supple and hydrated.

    Treat Sunburn The healing properties of aloe vera gel can additionally help to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with sunburn. It serves to restore your skin's natural moisture and also acts as a protective barrier against further damage.
