No other brand on the market has Aloesorb™.
History of the Aloe Vera Plant
The aloe plant has been used in the fields of medicine and cosmetics for centuries. Ancient records show that the medicinal properties and healing benefits of the aloe vera plant have been known for over 5000 years. The Bible mentions the aloe vera plant in over a dozen passages, referring to it as the “bitter herb”. The Biblical account of Christ’s burial states that his body was anointed with bitter aloes. There is a substantial amount of history and documentation behind the aloe vera plant.
Aloe Vera Uses
Aloe vera is filled with aloe polysaccharides which are the naturally occurring active components that promote absorption, digestive health, immune qualities, anti-inflammatory, and overall health benefits. In 1944, the benefits of the aloe vera plant were firmly established in the United States, when it was learned that the Japanese who were exposed to the “A” bomb applied aloe gel to their wounds and reported faster healing. Through use of aloe vera, they also had significantly less scaring. Aloe vera is now becoming more prevalent in every-day world. People are beginning to learn about the benefits and at least understand that aloe vera is good for them when taken internally or applied externally.
Scinece of the Aloe Vera Plant
Aloe vera is a succulent plant member of the lily family. Aloe Barbadensis Miller is the actual botanical name for the variety of aloe vera plant grown commercially for the healing and moisturizing properties of the aloe gel found in its leaves. Today, it appears that science is rediscovering what our ancestors knew. New studies continue to provide proof of the benefits of aloe vera both when applied externally and ingested internally. The aloe vera plant is currently one of the most studied herbs in the natural products category.

Aloesorb: Unique Technology
In 2007, Lily of the Desert developed a proprietary ingredient and delivery system in Aloesorb™. Aloesorb™ is a patented process in which high molecular weight polysaccharides (the biologically active component in the aloe leaf) that naturally occur in aloe vera are isolated, concentrated, and infused into all Lily of the Desert brand products to increase the efficacy of those formulas. The Lily of the Desert management and science team determined that consumers need to have clinical validation behind the product they are purchasing. To implement this, in 2008, the company had independent laboratories perform “Gold Standard” (randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, 75 plus subjects) clinical studies on products enhanced with Aloesorb™. The results were incredible, and as a result all Lily of the Desert formulations are enhanced with Aloesorb™.
Science-Driven, Clinically proven
Being the leader in the aloe industry and on the cutting edge of technology has led Lily of the Desert to provide consumers with scientific validation on its branded products. Taking that a step further, the Lily of the Desert science and research team is continuously searching for new ideas and product concepts in addition to striving to develop unique formulas and improve existing products. Once those products are developed or enhanced, Lily of the Desert will send them off to have independent laboratories conduct a clinical study on the finished product that will eventually end up on a retail shelf. This is extremely unique to the aloe vera industry, and shows that Lily of the Desert’s focus continues to set the standard for science, innovation, and technology of aloe vera. Lily of the Desert consumers can have the utmost confidence that the product they are taking will give them the maximum benefits of the “miracle plant” known as aloe vera.
