Why Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera has the ability to treat, exfoliate, restore, and give tremendous nutrition to the skin. The gel is incredibly cooling and calming as well. These qualities are the reason this plant is praised for its ability to treat lacerations, cuts, dry skin and serious burns. Products that use aloe vera are effective at all times of the year; summer, fall, winter, or spring. Cells begin to be treated at the outermost layer of the skin and this is the reason it’s highly favored by dermatologists for sunburns, stretch marks, to get rid of a tan, or even simply for dry skin.Although Aloe Vera is such a powerful plant for certain skin problems, it works its best when combined with our other essential and complimentary ingredients. Synergistically they provide a greater result. Nature Only’s Multifunction Ointment contains specifically selected ingredients to assist different stages of healing, taken into consideration all aspects of the regeneration process.
What is Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera, a green, cactus looking plant, and a key ingredient in our Natural Multifunction Ointment, is a plant which was used throughout history to provide various benefits for the skin, overall health, and more. Aloe Vera is very rich in vitamins, keeping the skin looking young, vibrant and happy. It also has powerful anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, making it an amazing ingredient for helping to heal the skin. The leaves of the Aloe Vera plant have sharp spikes and are particularly bitter in order to protect itself from hungry by animals and insects. Those same leaves contain within them a clear, tacky gel that is revered worldwide for its fantastic healing properties. The gel, itself, is made up of 96% water, a protein with 18 amino acids, 20 minerals, and vitamins A,B,C, and E. Additionally, one of the most significant ingredients found in the gel is acemannan, which is a complex carbohydrate that gives the nutrients the ability to reach, penetrate and provide for the skin’s cells while releasing them of toxins.
