Aloe vera is a succulent plant widely used for a variety of reported health benefits. Active compounds found in Aloe vera have potential wound healing, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Research has demonstrated that topically applied Aloe vera may be effective in increasing skin hydration and reducing symptoms associated with psoriasis and acne. Aloe vera is also considered a very gentle ingredient that is well tolerated even by individuals with sensitive and/or inflamed skin. Orally, Aloe vera has potential benefits for reducing blood glucose and lipid levels, and aiding in digestive health.
