Aloe Vera, Our Skin-Saving Hero
29 July 2020
You may have heard of the amazing Aloe Vera ingredient, but what actually is it? Let's get to know this vital ingredient!
The healing benefits of Aloe Vera has been Grace Cosmetics foundation for decades.
You wouldn’t believe how many vitamins and antioxidants are in a single leaf of Aloe Vera, but here’s an idea... The beautiful green plant produces a gel that is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D an E, not to mention the extra minerals like magnesium, potassium and zinc.
There is a major difference between the inner leaf gel and the aloin (which is the green skin). The aloin is actually harmful to your skin, so it is important to only use the inner leaf gel.
Aloe Vera inner leaf gel penetrates the skin FOUR times faster than water and the above-mentioned vitamins and minerals can actually permeate through layers of the skin. Aloe Vera nourishes your skin from within, it’s unbeatable.
No wonder Aloe Vera has proven to reduce skin irritations from acne to sunburn, it fast tracks healing! The extremely hydrating substance gives your skin a boost by stimulating cell growth and collagen production, helping to delay the signs of ageing.
Other companies products use water as their highest content ingredient. Ours is Aloe Vera.
When shopping around for an Aloe Vera product, be sure to investigate how much Aloe Vera is in the product.
Companies can trick you into thinking you’re buying an Aloe rich product with phrases such as “contains aloe”, when the unfortunate truth is that you are receiving much less Aloe than expected.
Here’s a quick detective trick to get to the bottom of what is in your products:
When reading the ingredients label, if Aloe Vera is even halfway down the lengthy list it is likely the product does not contain an adequate amount.
For Grace, the amount matters and that is why Aloe Vera is the number one ingredient in all our skincare.
Our obsession with Aloe Vera is here to stay.
