Aloe, whose Arabic name ‘saber’ symbolizes patience, is used in many cultures for different purposes. The first documented use of aloe was from the ancient Egyptians. Around 1500 B.C., the Egyptians recorded use of the herbal plant in treating burns, infections and parasites. This plant grows approximately two feet high and is composed of long, spiky, thick, lance-shaped, green leaves which bloom in a rosette shape and flourish in warm environments. The leaves, which hold the majority of the desired product, can grow up to eighteen inches high and two inches wide.
Aloe is thought to heal epithelial tissue, which is defined as a layer of cells, which covers the body. Skin, therefore, is the body’s largest organ and is most benefited by the healing properties of aloe. Aloe is well reputed for the medicinal value of the sap found within its leaves. This sap, a thick, mucilaginous gel, is made up of a variety of amino acids, primarily alanine. The predominant properties of aloe are a result of the activity of amino acids on the skin. When topically applied, the gel that is contained within the leaves of the aloe plant has traditionally been shown to accelerate wound-healing time and alleviate burns. It also helps to lessen the risk of infection during the healing process. Worldwide, many civilizations such as the Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, Japanese, and Russian, extolled the medicinal uses of aloe. When taken internally, this plant has been used for centuries for treating stomach disorders, kidney ailments and hyperglycemia. Aloe gel has also been used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, allergic reactions and insect bites.
Aloe is able to moisturize the skin by bringing oxygen to the surface and increasing the synthesis as well as the strength of the skin tissue. Aloe improves the skin’s ability to hydrate itself, aids in the removal of dead skin cells and has an effective penetrating ability which all contribute to create an overall healthy aesthetic.
