Skin Care Products that use Aloe

Many skin care products on the market incorporate Aloe Vera into their ingredient list, but if the product does not come from a reputable, high-quality farm then the product may not give you the desired results you’re looking for. Understanding when and why to use Aloe Vera is important if you’re looking to create or improve your products.

Aloe Vera is most popularly used to treat burns on the skin, whether they be from flame or sun. The gel like substance that comes from the plant can be applied topically to soothe and providing a cooling affect for minor burns. However, this is only one of the many ways you can use Aloe Vera in skin care products and treatments. Some of the most popular products, in the beauty industry, that utilize Aloe Vera as a primary ingredient include:

Cleansers
Using a daily cleanser with Aloe Vera can help seriously cleanse your skin while reducing acne scars.

Facial Masks
Masks that incorporate Aloe Vera help to heal your skin with antioxidants; plump up the skin and improve texture because of Vitamins A, C & E found in the plant's extract

Serums
An aloe-based serum can both moisturize and hydrate, causing your skin to feel silky smooth after application.

The most popular use of Aloe Vera is in the products that treat burns, particularly those created for after sun care.
