Back to Basics: Aloe Vera

From potted succulents to boba toppings, aloe vera is found everywhere around us. Even in skincare where it's not highlighted, aloe may be hidden in the ingredients list. And there's a good reason for aloe's prevalence in skincare!


Aloe contains phytosterols which may help relieve any inflammation, itchiness, and irritation. Aloe also has cooling properties that help soothe the skin, one of the reasons why it is often used in after-sun products. 


Aloe is made up of about 95% water and the phytosterols it contains can also reduce transepidermal water loss. Its hydrating properties are perfect for dry or dehydrated skin!


With its anti-inflammatory AND antibacterial properties, it makes sense that aloe is a great ingredient even if you have acne. Besides acne, aloe is great for repairing burns and damaged skin barriers.

Aloe's wide range of benefits make it a versatile ingredient. From hydrating toners and sunscreens to hair treatments, aloe can be found in a variety of beauty products!
