Aloe Vera is my favorite plant for natural skin care remedy. I call it "the chosen plant". I cherish this magnificent gift from nature, which is why I use it as the main ingredient in OSYS® Naturals with other great natural ingredients.

Aloe Vera (Aloe Bargadensis) has been used medicinally since ancient times - the Egyptians called it “the plant of immortality.” Aloe Vera is a cactus plant belonging to the Liliaceae family that grows in dry climates. The two hormones found in Aloe Vera gel (Auxin and Gibberellins) promote wound healing and can help reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin stimulates the growth of new cells, allowing the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. Aloe Vera gel is effective in healing acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It also reduces blistering and itchiness, and even lessens the visibility of stretch marks. Its leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants (including beta carotene, vitamin C and E) that help the skin retain its natural firmness and hydration.

Since Aloe Vera contains mostly water, it is a great way to hydrate, moisturize, and rejuvenate the skin. Aloe Vera increases the elasticity of the skin making it more flexible through collagen and elastin repair. Aloe Vera is an emollient, helping to soften and soothe the skin. Aloe Vera helps supply oxygen to the skin cells, increasing the strength and synthesis of skin tissue, and induces improved blood flow to the skin through capillary dilation.

Due to Aloe Vera's healing properties for the skin, Aloe Vera is one of the primary ingredients used in OSYS® Naturals. Unfortunately, only few companies use this great natural plant in their products. Aloe Vera is great for burns, abrasions, and bug bites. Aloe Vera acts as an analgesic that helps relieve pain. Aloe Vera is also an antipruritic: A substance that relieves or prevents itching. Aloe Vera is an astringent: which causes the contraction of body tissues, typically used to reduce bleeding from minor abrasions.

Aloe Vera’s active ingredients are sulphur, lupeol, salicylic acid, cinnamic acid, urea nitrogen, and phenol which are substances that prevent the growth of disease-causing microorganisms and act as a team to provide antimicrobial activity thus eliminating many external infections, also active against bacteria. It also helps to treat fungal and viral infections.

Aloe Vera provides so many benefits! This information will help you understand this great gift from nature!

I love this plant! I am delighted to share it with you through OSYS® Naturals with love! Have a Smooth Day!
