Benefits of Aloe Vera and our reason for using it in our Holistic Body Butter

My trip to Egypt solidified my decision in using Aloe Vera in our Holistic Body Butter. While visiting the Step Pyramid (The Pyramid of Djoser) in 2019, one of the fellow members of the tour, John, forgot to travel with his sunscreen lotion—an unfortunate mistake for him, a Caucasian male in a 40°C weather. Luckily, there stood an Aloe Vera plant next to the washroom in the middle of the desert, where no other plants or wildlife can be found. The moment I saw it, I knew it was perfect for him.  It was the Aloe Vera plant and my Shea Butter that soothe his skin and prevent further damage. As some of you may know, my trip to Egypt was used for research purposes for Leonica Cosmetics. This moment solidified my decision to add Aloe Vera and Shea Butter in my Holistic Body Butter. Let’s break down why Aloe Vera was the perfect solution for John’s problem.

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera comprises 18 of 20 amino acids found in our body; this rich in Vitamin A, C, and E plant is known for its multiple benefits for both hair and skin 

Benefits for Skin

Aloe Vera has numerous benefits for the skin. This plant contains an enzyme called proteolytic that repairs dead skin cells, making it ideal for sunburns. Its enzymes, antioxidants power, and the fact that it treats skin cells on an epithelial level are some of the many reasons why dermatologists recommend it to remove tan, sunburn, and stretch marks. 

Benefits for hair 

The Aloe Vera plant has been used in hair for centuries. Today, the gel of an Aloe Vera plant is used for DIYs  Pre-Poo, Shampoo, and Condition. Its Vitamin B12 component and folic acid make it the perfect ingredients to stop massive shedding. Additionally, its amino acids, vitamin A, C, and E, keep one’s hair shafts healthy and nourish. 

This information, among others, made Aloe Vera Juice the ideal ingredient for our Holistic Body Butter. Our Holistic Body Butter was strategically formulated with ingredients that are good for both hair and skin—making it perfect for travelling and everyday use.
