What is Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice: commonly known as Aloe Vera, is a succulent plant species that grows in warm and dry climates.

Why we use it:  Aloe vera is rich in vitamins A, B, C, folic acid, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. It contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, and reduces dandruff.

Other benefits: It has antioxidant and antibacterial properties, accelerates wound healing, reduces dental plaque, helps treat canker sores, reduces constipation, improves skin and prevent wrinkles, and last but not least lowers blood sugar levels.
