Lifestream Aloe Vera Gel is made from organically grown plants which are harvested by hand, using only the outer leaves so the plants can continue to grow sustainably. The fillets of gel are cut from the inside of the leaf by hand and washed to remove the latex. The gel forms a unique barrier on the skin which seals in essential nutrients and moisturisers, while still allowing it to breathe normally. The pure "inner gel" of the Aloe barbadensis plant contains numerous essential minerals, enzymes, vitamins, proteins, amino acids, plus many other active components such as saponins and mucinous polysaccharides (MPS), essential for cell growth and renewal.
Aloe Vera has been used for thousands of years to hydrate, soothe and nourish our skin. Aloe Vera supports the delivery of moisture and nutrients to the skin. The earliest references found are on the walls of temples in Egypt, where mythology suggests that Queens Nefertiti and Cleopatra used Aloe Vera as part of their beauty treatments.
Lifestream Aloe Vera Gel products can be used for a wide range of nourishing skin support applications including hydrating skin after a shower, as part of your facial skin care regime, as cooling and soothing relief after a day in the sun, as an alternative to shaving gels and creams, and for after shaving.
