Aloe Vera: A Natural Way to Heal
In the good old days, when kids ran to Mom with a scrape, rash or sunburn, chances are she went straight to the potted aloe vera plant in the backyard, snapped off one of its thick, fleshy leaves, and rubbed the juicy gel directly on their skin. Today, aloe vera remains one of the most popular and effective natural skin care remedies nature has to offer, and the ingredient is found in everything from skin care products to cosmetics. When applied topically, aloe vera offers more than just anti-inflammatory and tissue healing qualities.
Aloe Vera History: From Cleopatra to Today’s Skin Care Line
According to the International Aloe Science Council, there are more than 250 species of aloe vera. Legend has it that this spiky succulent plant, a member of the lily family, was one of Cleopatra’s secrets for keeping her skin soft and smooth. Alexander the Great is also said to have acquired Madagascar so that he could utilize the indigenous aloe vera to treat his soldiers’ wounds.
In the 1950s, aloe vera gel, a clear, semi-solid gel extracted from the plant’s leaves, was stabilized and marketed in the United States and began gaining respect as an ingredient in nutritional drinks, skin care products and over-the-counter medications. Since then, scientific analysis has revealed that aloe vera extracts contain amino acids, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, glycoproteins, polysaccharides and biological stimulators that, when applied topically, work to heal, hydrate and protect skin.
