The Benefits of Aloe Vera

Cleopatra Was on to Something

It was on in-demand beauty care for Egyptian queens like Nefertiti and Cleopatra. Alexander the Great applied it to his soldiers' wounds. Ancient civilizations throughout China, Greece, and Mexico turned to it for medicinal purposes. The benefits of aloe vera have made it a popular natural moisturizer and antiseptic go-to for millennia. Here's why:

 

ALOE VERA – WHAT’S IN IT?

  • Antioxidant Vitamins – Yep, that slimy goo inside aloe vera contains free-radical-neutralizing antioxidants, like vitamins A, C and E. It also provides vitamin B12, folic acid, and choline.
  • Minerals – Aloe vera doesn’t stop at vitamins. Aloe vera also includes calcium, magnesium (one of our FAVORITE natural minerals at JE!), potassium, sodium, zinc, and more. 
  • Anti-Inflammatory Elements – From salicylic acid to campesterol and lupeol, aloe vera packs a big anti-inflammatory punch.

 

ALOE VERA – USES

  • Skin & Face Moisturizer – Cleopatra had the right idea: aloe vera has been known to boost collagen, which can help with anti-aging and moisturizing.
  • Sunburn Care – Aloe vera’s been known to not only soothe skin after exposure to the sun’s rays, but also to reduce the damaging effects to the skin.
  • Wounds & Boo-Boos – There’s a reason your mom used to rub a bit of aloe vera on that scrape. Aloe vera includes six antiseptic agents such as lupeol and phenols, which can fight bacteria and viruses.
