Aloe Vera history

The Aloe Vera plant has been used for its cosmetic and therapeutic properties for more than four thousand years.

In the I century AD, Dioscorides devoted a significant part of his Greek Herbal to its medicinal and cosmetic virtues. Alexander the Great conquered the island of Socotra in Southern Arabia because there were many Aloe plants there to help cure the wounds and diseases suffered by his soldiers when on campaign.

Cleopatra and Nefertiti used Aloe Vera as a a basic part of their daily beauty care. In the East, it is known as the drink of perfection. The Arabs were the first to transform Aloe into a commercial extract.

In the second half of the XX century, its properties and applications, not just for the skin and hair, but also for internal use, were slowly rediscovered.

The burns suffered by the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki healed more quickly with Aloe and, in many cases, without leaving scars or marks.
It is used by NASA because it absorbs 90% of the toxicity of glass fiber, varnish and paint, the radiation of computers, television sets and other electrical appliances.

Aloe Vera penetrates the deepest layers of the skin with great ease, reaching the capillary system which supplies blood to the dermies and helping to eliminate the waste products deposited on its walls, leaving the capillary vessels clean so that the red corpuscles can do their job: that of feeding and

supplying oxygen to the cells which make up our skin. Aloe Vera is great ability to penetrate the skin also means that the active components accompanying it in our different Aloe product formulae also reach these layers and are, therefore, able to perform the treatment functions for which they are included.

When used internally, not only does Aloe Vera cleanse the digestive system, helping to prevent indigestion, acidity, constipation, diarrhea, ulcers, hemorrhoids, etc., but the rest of our body systems (muscles, bones, circulation, respiratory, nervous and epithelial systems) also benefit from its effects. As the Hippocratic principle claims: “Healthy gut, healthy body. Unhealthy gut, unhealthy body.”
