I have found over almost 50 years of teaching about Herbal Medicine & Natural Skin care Formulation, that ALOE VERA should be an ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT, that is added to almost ALL formulations.
It is the ANTI-AGING and HEALING herb, with an amazing capacity to produce more fibroblast cells, some 6-8 times faster than normal cells. These particular cells manufacture collagen, which keeps the skin firm and elastic. Skin cells become softer, smoother, more alive and vibrant, as Aloe vera allows the skin to rejuvenate itself at a much deeper cellular level.
Aloe vera contains more than 75 nutritional compounds in approximately 1% of the plant. It has the UNIQUE ability to penetrate body tissues up to 7 layers deep, assisting to carry, not only itself, but the other ingredients within your formula much much deeper into the tissues for greater healing and regeneration. Aloe Vera cleanses, anaesthetizes, and promotes wound healing, reduces scarring, cools inflammation, and greatly promotes the growth of new healthy cells from deep within and it does this very gently, and safely on all skin types.
Aloe vera should not be used at higher ratios than 15 to 20% of your formulations, or it will exhibit a drying quality on the skin – however, this may be a requirement of formulas created perhaps for excessively oil and problem skin types, acne or for weeping burns etc. where extra drying ability is important. Aloe vera is also most effective for scalp issues too.
