Aloe vera is a succulent plant that grows mainly in subtropical and tropical regions. It forms spirally arranged, fleshy leaves that contain a gel with a number of pharmacologically important substances. There are more than 200 of these in this plant, which is why the demand for aloe vera continues to grow.
There are hundreds of species of the aloe plant, but aloe vera - or true aloe - is just one and has been used in natural medicine for thousands of years. This plant is now widespread all over the world; those who can grow it in pots at home. Its place of origin, however, is not yet fully understood - it is thought that it may be the Nile basin in the African Sudan, but the plant has been around so long that we may never know its true origins.
Aloe vera contains aloin, essential oils, minerals, aldehydes, ketones, carbohydrates, amino acids, pectins, sterols, enzymes, tannins or polysaccharides, for example. The result is a plant that benefits our natural defences, immune system, normal blood sugar levels, normal skin condition and is also an antioxidant. It is no wonder that aloe is also used in cosmetics, especially in products for sensitive skin or in shaving products, for example, for its soothing and calming effects on the skin. Aloe gel is then great for burns and abrasions.
