Aloe Vera is a perennial plant well known for its therapeutic properties. The scientific name is Aloe Barbadensis, a succulent plant from the Aloaceae family. Its leaves are dark green-gray, fleshy and with a serrated edge, consisting of an outermost part containing a bitter latex and an innermost part consisting of a gelatinous layer. From the center of the plant a tubular-shaped flower develops, with long stems, mainly red in color. Aloe Barbadensis can reach a maximum height of 60-90 cm and generally lives for 5 years.

From the leaves of aloe vera it is possible to obtain two types of extracts: condensed juice and gel, both of which have a large concentration of vitamins, mineral salts, amino acids, enzymes and other active ingredients useful for the well-being of our body.

This transparent gel is a kind of water reserve that allows the plant to survive even long periods of drought. The plant is in fact native to tropical Africa but also widespread in India and, in general, wherever the climate is particularly hot and dry, it is known as the "Desert Lily". Instead, the mucilaginous juice contained in the internal tissues of the leaves of Aloe Barbadensis is obtained by cold pressure and freeze-dried of the leaves. Used since ancient times, it was the basis of numerous ointments for body care and wound healing. Only after having found a method to avoid oxidation and fermentation of the aloe pulp, its commercialization began.

On a cosmetic level, aloe is a very versatile product. It can be used for countless uses: its refreshing power makes it suitable for soothing sunburn, but also for relieving itching and redness caused by insect bites. Thanks to its soothing and refreshing properties, it gives hydration and freshness (even after sun exposure).
Its tightening effect on small wrinkles is also known, but it is also indicated as a good adjuvant in the case of spots due to excessive sun exposure. Aloe has a strong antioxidant, healing and restorative action (stimulates the production of collagen) thanks to the content of polysaccharides derived from mannose, so it is often used to heal any wounds after shaving or hair removal.
Also ideal as a hair pack: it helps both to nourish dry and damaged hair, and to counteract the presence of dandruff.

Therapeutically, it is exploited a lot for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, in fact it promotes the healing and treatment of canker sores and gums, as it promotes the natural healing of lesions.
