Aloe Vera Soothes Skin Naturally
Though it looks more like a cactus, aloe vera is actually a member of the lily family. The plant's gel has over 75 nutrients and a stunning 200 active compounds, including 12 vitamins, 20 minerals and 18 amino acids. Aloe vera has been used for centuries to treat many ailments and to boost health in different areas of the human body. It is used externally to treat a number of skin irritations. Its antiseptic and antibiotic properties make it highly valuable in treating cuts and abrasions. It also has commonly been used to treat mild to moderate skin burns. Some studies have shown that aloe provides positive results for wound healing. Aloe vera's beneficial properties may be attributed to mucopolysaccharides present in the inner gel of the leaf, especially acemannan (acetylated mannans). Burt's Bees uses aloe vera in many of their products because it is a great moisturizer that soothes irritated skin.
