Aloe Vera… From Burns to Beauty

Posted by Robyn on 11th Jun 2014

Our family just got back from a short trip to the beach near where we live. Most of my friends know that I am more concerned with chemicals than I am with natural things like germs, bugs, or the sun. Even though we do take 

precautions & use natural methods to avoid over sun exposure, we may occasionally get a bit "too much". What can I say? We love the sand, the waves, flying kites on the beach, making sand castles... So one of my favorite products is our body butters. The very first ingredient in these luxurious butters is aloe vera. There is so much more to this super ingredient than meets the eye. 

Here in the United States, we typically think of aloe vera when we it comes time to soothe a bad sunburn. In other parts of the world, however, where herbal medicine comes before conventional medicine, aloe vera is much, much more than sunburn relief.

Aloe vera is known to be anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, preservative, moisturizing, and rejuvenating. Topically, it can be used to treat conditions such as acne, athlete’s foot, boils, burns, dandruff, eczema, insect bites, poison ivy, psoriasis, scars, sunburn, and… every woman’s favorite… wrinkles! Aloe is reputed to have been one of the beauty secrets of Cleopatra, and is still used daily by women in other cultures to maintain beauty and counteract symptoms of aging.

You can find dozens of products on the shelves today containing aloe vera. Moisturizers, soaps, lotions, shampoos, etc. are all being made and are extolling “aloe vera” as an ingredient. Unfortunately, there is often no disclosure as to the amount of aloe vera you may be receiving, or information regarding the potency or wholeness of the aloe in the product.

When seeking to use aloe vera for your skin, it is imperative to find a trusted source to ensure maximum healing benefit. All of Shear Miracle Organics products use pure aloe vera in quantities large enough to promote healing and wellness to all areas of your skin. Nearly all of our products contain this vital ingredient which is so important to use during this season of chronically damaged skin. This is one reason my favorite product for my family during the summer months is our aloe vera packed body butter, specially formulated so that the healing ingredients will penetrate your skin quickly, giving you instantly softer, smoother & younger looking & feeling skin. My children are well acquainted with me saying, "It's time to get "buttered up". 

Try it this summer. Your skin will be happy.
