High Five for Aloe Vera
As parents we want the best for our kids and seeking out suitable toiletries and cosmetics can often be a mine field. You can start by looking for products that are made with ingredients that are gentle and will protect those delicate skins. Aloe Vera is an obvious suspects, known for its soothing and calming effects.
It is a thick cactus-like leaf plant and found in warmer regions such as Africa and South America. In ancient times, this plant was known as the “source of youth”. Egyptian queens, like Cleopatra and Nefertiti believed that bathing in ‘the plant of immortality’. They believed it would enhance and prolong their beauty. Even Alexander The Great used Aloe Vera as a healing solution for wounded soldiers on the battlefield.
Clear, gel-like pulp is taken from its green parts of the leaf, which has anti-inflammatory properties. It is also a natural PH balancer. This is especially good for sensitive skins to help soothe itchiness and irritation. It is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D and E as well as minerals like magnesium, potassium and zinc. These are all thought to aid in the healing of the skin.
