Aloe Vera (aloe barbadensis) is one of the oldest and most known natural folk remedies. Native to eastern and southern Africa, aloe grows wild in tropical climates and is extensively cultivated worldwide for its potential healing properties, especially treating sunburns or discomforting skin conditions. This well-known succulent plant has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, dating back to ancient times. It was referred to as “the plant of immortality” by the Egyptians because it can live and bloom without soil. Aloe Vera’s pain-relieving effects were even written on papyrus, describing its impact on inflammation and natural healing properties. It has been said even Cleopatra herself had used this medicinal plant, attributing it to her beauty.
Western medicine research since the 1930’s has collected data to show that aloe has a dramatic ability to heal and improve the skin. In the 1950’s, aloe vera became popular due to its emollient properties and its ability to treat burns as it was discovered that the plant’s soothing gel could soothe radiation burns in particular. Modern medicine and industrialization methods have since come a long way in harvesting aloe and treating the skin.
Our Organic Aloe Vera Powder is harvested, washed, and then ground up. The pulp and fibrous material is removed before the remaining contents are heat treated, filtered, and concentrated. The concentrated aloe material is then filtered once again and twice spray dried to create aloe vera powder. The finished powder product is an off-white color and water-soluble, carrying a mild aroma characteristic of the plant. Because our Organic Aloe Vera Powder is concentrated to 100x, a small amount goes a long way!
