Aloe Vera gel is a mucilaginous juice obtained by cold pressing the leaves of this wonderful plant. It consists mainly of polysaccharides, formed by glucose and mannose chains. It also contains phytosterols (cholesterol, campesterol and beta sitosterol), vitamins, enzymes, trace elements and amino acids. Aloe Vera juice acts mainly as a soothing skin moisturizer, but it also contains antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Like other products rich in mucopolysaccharides, aloe vera gel forms a protective film on the skin able to perform as an excellent hydrating agent. Traditionally, Aloe Vera is known for its healing and soothing properties and its ability to reduce redness. The phytoconstituents of Aloe Vera also seem to be able to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, enabling it to contrast the effects of aging.
The juice of Aloe Vera leafes is mainly used for its hydrating properties and in anti-aging products. Thanks to its capacity to calm skin irritations and reduce redness, it is often used in sunscreen products and in cosmetics used to contrast the effects of atmospheric agents (such as sun, cold and wind).
