Science Notes

Found in dry climates including Africa and India, the aloe vera plant has long been used as a topical first aid treatment. The most valuable part of the aloe vera plant is the juicy, slimy gel that can be found when you cut a sprig of aloe vera in half. This gel encompasses a multitude of beneficial ingredients such as lectins, mannans, polysaccharides and anthraquinones that aid and support the healing process.
