The Benefits of Aloe Vera

by Lyssia Katan

It’s a plant, it’s a flower, it’s the wonderwoman of the botanical world! Who else but the mystical Aloe Vera? This tropical succulent has long been known for its soothing properties on sunburned skin after a long day at the beach. Alas, this spiky superstar is more than just a summertime essential. Read all the benefits of Aloe Vera below & find it in our very own Beldi Buff Moroccan exfoliating soap:


1. Aloe Vera moisturizes the skin

This benefit is kind of a given, which is exactly why we put pure Aloe Vera juice in our Beldi Buff. The moisturizing qualities of Aloe Vera go far beyond a sunburn, containing a high number of mucopolysaccharides (we’re not really sure how to pronounce that one either), which help bind moisture to the skin. 


2. Aloe Vera is high in antioxidants

Aloe Vera contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E, which are all antioxidants. Antioxidants naturally fight free radicals, helping keep the skin look youthful & glowing.


3. Aloe Vera is a natural exfoliant

The enzymes and salicylic acid in Aloe Vera help exfoliate the skin to rid it of dead skin cells, leaving it smooth to the touch - which is exactly why it's a key ingredient in our Beldi Buff exfoliating soap.


4. Aloe Vera provides relief from Psoriasis and Eczema

Often used for itchy skin, this wonder plant has been shown to soothe and moisturize common trouble spots on the skin. Much like the way it soothes sunburns, Aloe Vera can provide some much needed relief to those suffering from psoriasis and eczema.


5. Aloe Vera helps with anti-aging

Applying Aloe Vera topically has been proven to restore skin elasticity. Studies show this magical plant stimulates production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin fibers in the skin, improving skin elasticity overt time. 


6. Aloe Vera helps fade dark spots and scars

This succulent helps stimulate the production of collagen, reducing the appearance of dark spots and scars. Aloe Vera also has anti-inflammatory properties, helping skin heal naturally overall.


7. Aloe Vera is great for sensitive skin

In it's pure 100% natural form (found in our Beldi Buff), Aloe Vera is the perfect go-to for sensitive skin. Find it in our Beldi Buff Moroccan exfoliating soap & feel the natural difference!
