History of Aloe Vera Skin Care
The history of Aloe Vera Skin Care goes back more than 5,000 years.
Some of the greatest minds and most legendary beauties in history, from Aristotle to Cleopatra, have celebrated Aloe Vera for its amazing effectiveness in enhancing beauty and in easing a great variety of skin conditions.
The Egyptians called Aloe Vera the "plant of immortality" for its ability to keep the skin fresh and lovely. Queen Cleopatra used Aloe Vera as an essential part of her renown Aloe skin care that kept her complexion so beautiful.
Medicinal Aloe Vera
The transparent gel inside the thick leaves of the succulent Aloe Vera plant has been used for thousands of years to aid healing and to soothe skin conditions.
Aristotle was a well known as a botanist in his time and versed in the benefits of Aloe Vera. He recommended to his student, Alexander the Great, to capture the island of Socotra, off the coast of Eastern Africa, for its Aloe Vera. Then the Aloe could be used to heal the wounds of Alexander's soldiers.
In India, Aloe has been used since the 4th Century BC to resolve skin conditions and heal burns and wounds. It has been used since ancient times all over Mexico and South America to bring relief from insect bites and to repel insects.
In the Bible, Aloe is referred to along with other herbs and spices that "the Lord hath planted." Jesus' body was removed from the cross and wrapped in "aloes and myrrh." (John 19:39-40)
Many recent scientific studies of Aloe Vera have been undertaken to investigate the medicinal properties of Aloe Vera including the treatment of Diabetes, and certain cancers.
Aloe Barbadensis Miller
InfiniteAloe® Skin Care is made from genuine Aloe Barbadensis Miller, or Aloe Vera, also known as medicinal Aloe. Out of more than 200 varieties of aloe, Aloe Barbadensis Miller is the finest quality Aloe Vera. This is the same Aloe Vera that is used for human consumption and contains essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Aloe Barbadensis Miller was given its name by Philip Miller, the noted English expert on plants and herbs, who thought it was indigenous to the island of Barbados.
In fact, Aloe Barbadensis Miller (Aloe Vera) succulent plant is probably native to Northern Africa. It was found and cultivated across Europe. Spanish missionaries transplanted Aloe Barbadensis Miller (Aloe Vera) to Barbados more than 100 years before the classification by Mr. Miller. But the plant species classification still bears his name.
Most skin creams use water as their primary ingredient. (This is why you'll find water listed as the very first ingredient on the list of nearly every skin cream.) That means the skin cream consists mainly of water. InfiniteAloe® Skin Care lists Aloe Vera as the number one ingredient. That's because Aloe Vera is the primary ingredient of our skin cream. InfiniteAloe® Skin Care consists in the largest part, of organic Aloe Vera gel and it contains more Aloe Vera than any other single ingredient (even water!)
