Aloe Vera is renowned for its vast beneficial properties and has been used for treating skin complaints since ancient times. It has shown fantastic results when used to ease symptoms of acne, dermatitis &, psoriasis, and is also beneficial to sooth burns, stings, rashes and other skin irritations.
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Aloe Vera is also noted for its effectiveness in reducing joint and muscle pains, as well as pain and swelling caused from arthritis. Its nourishing, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties also make Aloe Vera a great natural treatment for an itchy scalp and dry hair, assisting with reducing dandruff, and leaving your hair strong and healthy.
Most commonly used sun screen & after sun care products, Aloe Vera is also widely used in a variety of other cosmetic products such as hand & body lotions, bath & body products, shaving preparations, styling gels, hand sanitisers, shampoos & conditioners, cleansers and moisturisers. It is also used in various pharmaceutical products like first aid sprays & creams, anti-acne treatments, medicated powders/talcs, topical anesthetics and hydrocortisone creams.
AWO's Aloe Vera Gel 40X Decolourised is freshly harvested from the leaves of the Aloe Vera Barbadensis. The inner gel (fillet) is removed via mechanical squeezing, filtered to remove the pulp and fibre, and concentrated to 40x. It is then 'decolourised' via carbon filtration to remove residual aloin and reduce the odor to ensure color stability and to minimize the Aloe inherent pungency. It then stabilized with a minute percentage of food grade preservatives, as is needed for all pure Aloe Vera gels.
