Four Reasons Aloe is Ideal for Your Skin

Posted on

When selecting skin care products, consumers take into account many factors, such as price, active ingredients featured in the formulation, the product’s fragrance and texture, and more. What is widely overlooked, however, is an examination of the product’s base (also called the "delivery vehicle"). The base is the product’s main ingredient and, as such, it sets the stage for the results that can be achieved through use of the product. Most skin care products are formulated with a base of water – an economical base that mixes well with other ingredients and keeps the weight of the product light. However, water is not therapeutic to the skin. Its purpose is simply to dissolve the other ingredients that are added.

Contrarily, Lexli products are formulated with a base of organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera – a therapeutic base that offers many benefits to the skin. Consider the following:

Aloe is Easily Absorbed by the Skin

Because aloe has a naturally small molecular size, it is more easily absorbed by the skin, and this is a huge reason for its effectiveness. The fastest way to make your skin look and feel great is to get the right products underneath that top epidermal layer. Why is aloe getting into your skin scientifically proven to be a good thing? Aloe contains more than 200 active components, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, polysaccharides and fatty acids, which nurture and promote healing.

Aloe is a Natural Skin Moisturizer

Aloe vera has a polysaccharide-rich composition that makes it an effective natural moisturizer. This is beneficial to all skin types in that use of aloe-based products leaves skin feeling softer and more comfortable. Aloe’s moisturizing ability has specific advantages, as well. For example, those with dry or sensitive skin will find that aloe-based cleansers don’t leave their skin feeling dry or tight, as is a common complaint for these individuals when using water-based cleansers.

Aloe is an Effective Acne Treatment

Among the four main causes of acne are bacteria and inflammation. Acne’s saponin and barbaloin content allow it to act as an antimicrobial, thereby minimizing the presence of Propionibacterium, the bacteria involved in the development of acne. Aloe also contains salicylic acid and sterols, which inhibit acute inflammation. Thus, when aloe is used as a base in a skin care formulation in conjunction with other ingredients proven beneficial in the fight against acne, impressive results can be garnered.

Aloe has Anti-Aging Benefits

Scientific research has shown that several components in aloe give it an impressive ability to regenerate cells. These include gibberellin, a growth hormone-like substance that increases protein synthesis, and lectin, a protein that increases collagen activity and improves the collagen matrix. Aloe also has been shown to stimulate the fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin fibers, helping to make the skin more elastic and less wrinkled.

Lexli’s founder, Dr. Ahmed Abdullah, a board-certified plastic surgeon and noted aloe researcher, agrees with the comments of H. Reginald McDaniel, a prominent researcher at the Dallas-Fort Worth Medical Center, who said that "the use of aloe vera will be the most important single step forward in the treatment of diseases in the history of mankind." As aloe’s benefits are increasingly highlighted in medical journals across the globe, we expect that more and more individuals will seek it out for the health needs. Meanwhile, those that have long used Lexli products can testify to the impact aloe can have on the skin.
