The miracle that is Aloe Vera.......And that's not even an exaggeration!

So for a bit of a science lesson here is a (very) quick and refined review, and why I just think it's one of the best bases to put in our Shelby's Soaps.

This cactus like plant is well known for it's healing and medicinal properties and has been used throughout history to treat a huge variety of skin conditions.
The stem stores water creating a clear gel like substance in the leaves. Its in this that we find minerals, vitamins A, C & E and amnio acids.
Not only that, the biochemistry found here is anti viral and cell regenerative.
The high content of water hydrates the skin, something soo important to keeping our skin healthy and reducing the early signs of ageing.
Salicylic Acid found in aloe acts as an exfoliator, perfect for cleaning out our pores and fighting those relentless blackheads.
Aloe stimulates fibroblast activity in our skin creating an uptick in collagen production and Elastin fibers making our skin more elastic and creating smooth skin and a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Six antiseptic agents fight fungi, bacteria and viruses.

That really was the note version of just how amazing Aloe Vera is, purely for using on our skin in soap products,it's other health benefits seem almost endless and really we still don't know everything it can do for us.

But it does make you question...    why aren't all of you using is a permanent fixture in your skincare?!

We've added the most scrumptious Rose essential oil and dried rose buds to our aloe vera base luxury soap so you can use it daily treating yourself and your skin to some of it's awesome properties.
