Healing Properties of the Ingredients:
- Aloe Vera Gel: Aloe Vera's #1 property is soothing burned skin, making it less painful and aiding in healing. It contains polysaccharides that protect against non-melanoma type skin cancers and prevent premature aging. It works as a natural sunscreen, blocking 20-30% uv rays. Aloe Vera absorbs into the skin almost four times faster than water, making it an excellent moisturizer. It is also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. *Make sure you get an aloe vera gel or liquid that has minimal ingredients and that they are natural. I trust Mountain Rose Herbs for my aloe vera.
