Since ancient times Aloe has been used in every variety of preparation to heal, beautify, moisturize and nourish the skin. There are references, both historical and apocryphal, that tell of the healing powers of Aloe when applied to wounds, cuts, abrasions and a variety of skin disease, not to mention common dry and flaky skin. Aloe’s name, “The Miracle Healing Plant,” is well founded in ancient, biblical and modern times.
One of the recent rediscoveries was the inner leaf gel of the Aloe plant. Aloe is a succulent, perennial plant. Its lance shaped and spiny green leaves, growing in rosette-like formation, reach a length of 30 inches and up to 3 lbs. in weight. The inner central zone produces the extract or gel to which ancient Egyptian Queens attributed their beauty and irresistible charm.

Most skin care programs add oils to dry skin, and alcohol or other drying agents to oily skin. Both dry and oily skin types need moisture – not oils or drying alcohols. When you apply oily products to dry skin, your skin sends a message to the brain that it needs to slow down your body’s natural oil production. It becomes a vicious cycle; the more oil you apply, the more dry your skin becomes. Likewise, applying drying alcohol products to oily skin sends a message to the brain that the skin needs more oil, and the cycles continue.
