Aloe vera is a succulent plant very well known for the hydrating properties of the gel that can be extracted from its thorny, tough-looking leaves. Aloe Vera originated in Africa and Egypt. Aloe Vera produces 2 substances: latex and Aloe Vera gel, each with very different appearances and therapeutic properties. Although it has been used in beauty products as far back as Cleopatra, it was only in 1935 that a group of American doctors used Aloe Vera to treat consecutive burns for the first time.
This active ingredient has since become famous and is now commonly used as gel to soothe skin inflammation, such as sunburn, burns, scars, or haemorrhoids...
THE BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA
Aloe Vera is an active ingredient rich in vitamins including vitamins A, B, C, as well as more than twenty trace elements, enzymes and minerals including calcium, copper, iron, lithium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc... Aloe Vera also contains 18 amino acids, 7 of which are essential, i.e. not produced by the body.
This arsenal of useful and necessary elements to the human body makes Aloe Vera gel an excellent moisturising active ingredient for the skin, limiting water loss from the skin as well as soothing, i.e. it relieves damaged skin prone to irritation and itching. To top it off, Aloe Vera contains lignin, allowing it to penetrate the skin particularly well.

METHOD OF PRODUCTION
Freeze-drying makes it possible to turn foodstuffs into powder. This dehydration technique preserves food's nutritional and organoleptic properties and the molecules' biological properties. The process has three phases:
- The product is frozen at between -30°C and -50°C.
- Primary drying or sublimation: During this stage, called sublimation and carried out in a vacuum, the water contained in the product turns from solid state (ice) to gaseous state (vapour). The process takes place at a temperature above - 20°C.
- Secondary drying or final drying: this stage of the process is always carried out in a vacuum at a temperature not exceeding +50°C.
AND IF ANYONE ASKS YOU
- Does not contain derivatives of animal origin.<
- Easily biodegradable.
