Most botanists agree, and historical evidence suggests, that the Aloe Vera plant originated in the warm, dry climates of Africa. Aloe vera leaves are filled with a gel containing vitamins like A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C and E, and folic acid. Minerals found in aloe vera juice are copper, iron, sodium, calcium, zinc, potassium, chromium, magnesium and manganese. Aloe vera soothes and cools; thus, it is commonly used topically to treat sun burned skin, inflammation and allergic reactions. It provides moisture, nourishment and regenerates skin tissue and also has antibacterial properties. Try in our Pitta Cleanser and Mask- for sensitive skin and Kapha Cleanser and Mask- for oily skin.
