When it comes to plants Aloe Vera is a rock star! It plays an important role in traditional and herbal medicine throughout the world. It is a rich source of many vitamins such as vitamin C, B1, B2, B3, B4 and B12. It also contains beneficial minerals such as potassium, calcium, sodium, manganese, magnesium, silicon, iron, lithium, copper and germanium.
Aloe Vera Leaf Powder is an excellent emollient, making it soothing and calming to the skin. One of its major advantages is that very few people have a reaction to it so it is extremely versatile. It is effective for healing irritated, sunburned or inflamed skin. Aloe Vera Leaf Powder contains salicylates, which are known to relieve pain. It is also high in antioxidants, vitamin C, and other minerals which allow the skin to heal faster.

How To Use
Aloe Vera Leaf powder is water soluble and should be added to the aqueous phase of your formulas. Dosage is 0.5g per 100ml of product. This means 99.5% water to 0.5% powder. If you are adding preservative then you would reduce the water by the amount of preservative you are adding.
You can also put the powder in shampoos, creams, lotions, spritzers and toners, baby products, and products for sensitive and problem skin. By mixing it with a little water, you can add it directly to ready-made creams, lotions, gels, cleansers, peelers, exfoliators as well as hydrolates, face spritzers, toners and baths. It is water soluble so cannot be added to oil blends and serums as it will separate.
INCI: Aloe barbadensis.
