Aloe vera is widely used in skincare for its numerous benefits including moisturising, soothing, healing, antimicrobial, anti-ageing and lightening scars and pigmentation.

Aloe vera helps to hydrate the skin without leaving it greasy; as a lightweight moisturiser it is non comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores.

With anti-inflammatory properties to calm irritated or sunburnt skin; reducing redness, swelling and discomfort, Aloe vera also promotes wound healing and skin regeneration, speeding up the healing process of minor cuts, burns and abrasions. 

Its ability to promote skin regeneration means it can lighten scars and improve hyperpigmentation. In speeding up the healing process, the risk of scarring is also reduced.

An antimicrobial, Aloe vera can prevent bacteria and fungal infections making it a good ingredient for acne, psoriasis and eczema. Containing anti oxidants that help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which are a contributor of premature ageing, consistent use may help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
