A multi-billion dollar industry has sprung up to provide people with a plethora of skin balms, lotions and even prescription pills to help combat skin problems. A large population readily forks over their hard earned cash in order to find at least some sort of relief for their skin dilemmas.
While many large pharmaceutical companies choose to fight fire with fire by cooking up something in the lab, others have jumped onto the “natural” bandwagon releasing lines of hypoallergenic soaps, creams and lotions derived from natural sources.
, Did You know that one of the hottest natural additives today that is now being added into everything from hand sanitizer to laundry soap is, ironically, something that has been already been used for centuries. This substance is the so-called Aloe Vera plant.
Many people keep an Aloe Vera plant in their home to aid in soothing burns and healing cuts, using the succulent as a natural first aid salve.
The Aloe Vera plant has a long history as being a kitchen ornamental that people prefer to keep around whether they actually use it or not, simply because their parents and grandparents also had one.
What many people do not know is that Aloe Vera’s healing properties have a potential way beyond just being a substitute for a band-aid and a mother’s kiss (although it is hard to top a “boo boo” kiss). Besides just treating cuts, scrapes and burns, this miracle plant can also help control acne, psoriasis, frostbite and blisters as well as help maintain a healthy beautiful skin.
Aloe Vera has strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal as well as anti-viral properties. Aloe Vera contains a large amount of the long chained sugar called mucopolysaccharides that helps fight off microbial invasion. These Polysaccharides are essential in helping heal damaged cells, and something that people stop developing on their own after adolescence.
Besides this long chained sugar that Aloe Vera contains, it also has a large amount of phytosterols, which are plant lipids that help improve skin elasticity eliminating the effects of scarring and wrinkles.
The gel of the Aloe Vera plant also has amazing moisturizing properties that also possess the ability to oxygenate the skin tissue helping it to heal faster. On top of all this, this little miracle plant contains 200 other active biological agents including glycerol, vitamin E and zinc.
Imagine, you can get all this for a couple of bucks at a plant and garden center.
While big name corporations are catching on to the healing properties of Aloe Vera and are incorporating it into everything from disposable shaving blades to mouthwash, it is still in the pharmaceutical companies best interest to keep the population in the dark about the many healing secrets that this desert lily has.
If people found out, that treating your face with Aloe Vera gel might do a better job in treating your acne than a prescription drug that could burn your face...
... How the heck would they make any money?
