Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis M.) is used extensively in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. Why? Aloe works!

We are exposed daily to Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. UV radiation induces damage to the skin, which in turn causes alterations in skin structure.

Code word? Wrinkles and crow’s feet!

A study was recently conducted which examined whether baby aloe shoot extract, which is from the one-month-old shoots of Aloe vera, and adult aloe shoot extract, which is from the four-month-old shoots of Aloe vera, have a protective effect on UVB-induced skin photoaging in normal human dermal fibroblasts.

Results?

It turns out that baby shoot extract may potentially protect the skin from UVB-induced damage more than adult extract.

But a larger question looms…

Has anyone ever seen a product label that states the age of Aloe Vera in the product? Please write to me if you find one at the e-mail address listed below.

Yours in Health!
