Why You Should Use Aloe Vera Gel as a Natural Moisturiser

Why You Should Use Aloe Vera Gel as a Natural Moisturiser Aloe vera is widely used for cosmetic and medicinal purposes due to its moisturising and soothing effect. It is found in many consumer products including skin lotions and ointments for minor burns and sunburns. Aloe vera gel is a popular skincare product that helps to keep the skin hydrated and prevents irritation.

Aloe vera, also known as Aloe barbadensis, is a succulent plant originating form the Arabian Peninsula. Today, it is cultivated in tropical climates around the world, including countries such as Australia, Bangladesh, China, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, India, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, Tanzania, South Africa, and the United States. Due to its ability to accumulate water, aloe vera is widely used for cosmetic purposes as a natural moisturiser. Besides, it has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, soothing, softening, and rejuvenating properties.

Aloe vera forms a symbiosis with a fungus (the so-called arbuscular mycorrhiza) that allows the plant better access to minerals in soil and thus helps it to survive in areas of low natural rainfall. That’s why aloe vera is rich in mineral nutrients and bioactive phytochemicals, such as polymannans, acetylated mannans, anthrones, anthraquinone C-glycosides, emodin, and various lectins.

Aloe vera leaf juice, also known as aloe vera gel, is a popular cosmetic ingredient that can be found in moisturisers, lotions, shampoos, soaps, sunscreens, shaving products. It can also be applied to skin “as is” for extra hydration. Pure aloe gel hydrates at least 3 epidermal layers, naturally replenishes the skin, soothes tender skin, and produces a cooling effect. Today many cosmetic brands offer high-quality aloe vera gel for skin and hair care. They include The Saem and Lily of the Desert.

The Saem is a Korean beauty brand that was launched in 2010 by Hankook Cosmetics. 99% Jeju Fresh Aloe Soothing Gel is one of the brand’s most popular products.
