What is Aloe Vera?

The clear gel that is found under the Aloe Vera skin is what is known as Aloe Vera Gel. It is made up of 96% water, various enzymes, anti-oxidants, minerals, and vitamins, like Vitamin E which are considered good for your skin.  

Studies have shown that used in conjunction with traditional anti-acne medication, Aloe Vera gel, is very effective in treating mild to moderate acne. Even on its own, Aloe Vera gel applied on the face can increase blood flow and fight-off harmful bacteria on the Skin.


Is Aloe Vera Safe for The Skin?

Aloe Vera is one of the few ingredients that’s suited for all skin types like oily, dry, or sensitive skin so applying it daily will not harm your skin. It is completely safe to apply Aloe Vera gel on your skin directly. However, as with any new ingredient that you apply to your skin for the first time, test the gel on the back of your wrist and see if you develop any rashes within a couple of hours. Avoid applying on the infected skin
