USDA certified organic aloe vera leaf c/s.
When it comes down to stocking a formulator’s cabinet, aloe vera leaf c/s is one of those “must-have” herbs. It’s widely understood by consumers as being a beneficial additive. If it’s seen on an ingredient panel, it practically markets itself.
Aloe vera leaf contains a host of vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, saponins, salicylic acids, and amino acids. One of these naturally occurring enzymes is called proteolytic which can help repair dead skin cells on the scalp and skin. It also acts as a terrific conditioning aide, which helps smooth out the hair shaft, eliminating flyaway hair syndrome. Another crucial element found in aloe vera leaf is a complex carbohydrate known as acemannan. This compound is a long sugar chain that has the ability to interject itself into cell membranes, thus providing our skin with a hydrated appearance.
This product is food grade, but please note we are a cosmetic supply company so our labels will speak of topical use. Aloe holds a distinct and seriously bitter taste, which can be improved upon when sugar or sugar substitute is added. Always speak with your doctor before ingesting herbal supplements, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
