    Aloe Vera Description:

    Aloe vera, also listed as Aloe Barbadensis, is a commonly used plant extract that is made up of 99.5% water that is stored in the slimy juice inside its leaves. Aloe vera has soothing properties and is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids which can help resolve scalp inflammation which causes dandruff. These properties are also why aloe vera is used in after sun products to help soothe sunburn which is a violent inflammation of the skin. Aloe vera acts as a hydrating agent for skin thanks to its polysaccharide and sterol content. Aloe vera contains vitamins A, C and E which contribute to cell turnover which stimulates healthy cell growth and boosts shine. It's also composed of vitamin B12 and folic acid which prevents hair fall out. Aloe vera is great for deep cleansing oil hair types as it strips the sebum and oil residue from the scalp by cleansing the hair shaft.
