Scientific evidences

Since 1979 the Aloe Vera has been, more and more, an object of scientific investigations. All over the world scientists have studied its various and undisputed properties and its possible application in the medical and cosmetic field.

The cream made with Aloe Vera is particularly effective to the skin, due to its high capacity to be absorbed by the cutaneous tissues. In fact, apart from being moisturizing, antiseptic, antibiotic and antibacterial, the Aloe Vera increases, from six to eight times, the production of human fibrous plastics (the cells which produce collagen); all these properties help to regenerate the tissues and quicken the process of the healing of ulcers and wounds.

Recent studies demonstrate that, if the Aloe Vera Gel is directly applied over an ulcer, this can be, up to 80%, rapidly healed, as the gel expands the capillaries, such increasing the cellular proliferation, and mitigates the pain both in case of burns or wounds.

In the medical practice (Lee Crowden, M.D.), compounds of Aloe Vera are locally used to reach a rapid healing of lacerations, burns, surgical wounds and other lesions of the skin, including pre-cancerous ulcers.

It is also effective to better a number of skin eruptions and dermatosis; in fact, the gel contained in the leaves of Aloe has an antibacterial and fungicide action.
Just because of this, the Aloe Vera is used to cure various problems like, for instance:

  • Acne, dermatitis, wrinkles (the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated), herpes, haemorrhoids, impetigo, warts, athlete foot, spots of old age over the hands and arms, bedsores, psoriasis, cellulites, stretch marks and warts.
  • Aloe Vera gives a rapid relief in case of stings caused by insects, jellyfishes and mettles
  • Blocks, as a natural screen, the harmful ultraviolet radiation of the sun.

The Aloe Vera is hypoallergenic and has no side effects.

Most of the infectious dermatitis, including those which are caused by bacterium or fungus, get more rapidly cured with the application of Aloe Vera than with the number of other available treatments for topical use
