Aloe extract

Aloe Extract is obtained from the gel extracted from the leaves of the Aloe barbadensis plant. This extract is made up of 95% water and the rest contains active principles of aloe vera.

What is Aloe extract good for?

Aloe is recommended for all skin types, dry, oily or very sensitive skin, because it’s safe and effective.

Aloe extract has many virtues and benefits, that is why it’s used in cosmetic products such as shampoos, body and face creams, hair removal products, among others.

These are some of its benefits:

  • Aloe extract contains antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties which make it a popular choice to treat and relieve certain skin conditions, such as burns and wounds.
  • Some studies suggest that Aloe offers antibacterial properties.
  • Aloe cleanses the skin in depth, helps unclog pores, removes toxins and dirt that cause conditions such as acne.
  • Aloe is rich in zinc, which helps to heal skin damage caused by environmental factors or or small injuries such as sunburn, insect bites, among others.
  • Aloe contains a large amount of water making it a natural moisturizer that penetrates the deep layers of the skin. It also forms a protective layer, which is why it is especially recommended for dry, cracked skin, as well as dry hair, affected by dandruff, seborrhea and other scalp conditions.
  • Aloe is rich in vitamins A, B, minerals, mucilage, tannins, amino acids, oleic and linoleic fatty acids. These natural compounds nourish and regenerate the skin by stimulating collagen production.

Is Aloe Extract the same as Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera is dehydrated gel while the extract is an aqueous solution containing less than 10% Aloe Vera.

It is very important to know the difference between juice, extract, gel or powder. The gel is the pulp of the crushed leaf, rich in polysaccharides, vitamins and minerals, but it may contain aloin, a substance with a laxative action present in the plant, which is eliminated in the transformation process to obtain the juice. On the other hand, the juice is the most common way to find aloe vera, it does not contain aloin, but it preserves the rest of the beneficial components.

For its part, the aloe vera concentrate is dehydrated gel, while the extract is a preparation obtained from the powder mixed with water, and which usually contains less than 10% of this plant. Most manufacturers use powder.

Is it good to apply Aloe on face everyday?

You should know that if you are going to use the Aloe pulp directly on your face, 10-20 minutes of action will be enough for the plant to do its job. However, there are many people who wonder if they can apply a little Aloe before going to sleep and let it act throughout the night. The answer is yes, you can apply a little Aloe gel (or a cream that contains Aloe) on your face before going to sleep and wash your face well in the morning before starting your beauty routine.
