How does aloe vera oil work?
Everyone has probably heard about the beneficial effects of aloe vera. The extract from this plant is added to food, drinks, medicines and cosmetics.
Cosmetics with extracts from this succulent are especially popular among people with dry, sensitive skin, but also those with acne problems.
Although aloe is not an oil plant, by macerating its leaves in natural vegetable oil it is possible to obtain an enriched product with all its valuable properties. The macerated leaves (Aloe Barbadensis Leaf) return to the sunflower oil (Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil) what is responsible for the effective action of Aloe Vera - vitamins, amino acids and fatty acids as well as other valuable components. This process is not carried out at high temperatures and no harmful chemicals are used, so the cosmetic does not lose any active substances in the process.
Why choose aloe oil instead of aloe vera leaves alone?
First of all, because aloe vera pulp has moisturizing, soothing and regenerating properties, but it does not have enough emollients to maintain this moisture inside the skin. The basic rule of effective dry skin care is to use a duo - humectants and emollients. Humectants are hygroscopic, meaning they bind moisture and bring it into the skin. Emollients, in turn, act occlusively, coating the skin with a delicate, nourishing layer, which protects against transepidermal (transepidermal) water loss. As a result, the skin is deeply moisturized and at the same time protected against re-drying, without irritation and redness.
Aloe oil is a perfect combination of humectants (aloe extract) and emollients (sunflower oil). Adding to this the extraordinary properties of aloe in terms of soothing irritation, we have a cosmetic ideal for dry, dehydrated, sensitive, damaged, as well as acne-prone skin (soybean oil is non-comedogenic, i.e. it does not clog pores). The oil has also been enriched with natural vitamin E in the form of tocopherol thanks to the presence of sunflower oil, which makes it suitable also for mature skin with visible wrinkles. Aloe oil is therefore suitable for every person, as it provides effective and gentle care for all skin types.
