Corium 21 Aloe Vera

Why Aloe?

Aloe Vera is extensively used in beauty and health products for good reason: It's got antiviral, antibacterial and analgesic properties and is known for its infinite healing qualities at cellular level.  This has been known since Ancient Egyptian times when aloe was called the “plant of immortality” and in Ayurveda treatments it is known as the “miracle plant” that can treat wounds, minor cuts, dry skin and burns.

One of the most crucial elements found in Aloe Vera is a complex carbohydrate called Acemannan which allows nutrients to reach the cells, nourish them and at the same time relieve them of toxins. This is why many dermatologists recommend Aloe for sunburn and stretch marks.

Aloe also contains glycoproteins and polysaccahrides. Glycoproteins are known to help in healing by reducing inflammation and stopping pain. Polysaccahrides help with skin growth and repair. It’s also believed that these two substances help stimulate the immune system.

Finally, Aloe is rich in Vitamin C and Beta Carotene which is excellent for nourishment and anti-aging.  It moisturizes the skin without making it greasy.

The #1 ingredient in our cream is Organic Aloe Vera. The most potent form is found on the Hawaiian islands.
