Aloe Vera - our treasure from nature 

Bernd Kuhrs mit Aloe Vera auf Mallorca

"Queen of medicinal plants", "nature's miracle cure", "plant of immortality" - all names associated with the aloe vera plant.

The first records about the juice of the plant are about 6000 years old and it is said that already Cleopatra - the beauty queen par excellence - used the precious elixir for her beauty routine.

Aloe Vera gel is one of the main ingredients in our organic membrane masks - and not without reason.

But what is so special about our Aloe?

First, we use what's known as Aloe Vera Barbadensis Miller, by far the richest of its kind. Its high Acemannan (also known as Aloverose) content exceeds that of its peers by far.

The higher the Acemannan content, the higher the density and quality of the active ingredients in the plant.

Conventional cosmetic products usually contain aloe from North or South America, which is not only very harmful to the environment due to the long transport routes, but also results in low quality.

American manufacturers advertise that their plants contain an Acemannan content of 700-800 mg per liter. We counter this: Our Mediterranean aloe has an unsurpassed value of about 1700 mg/l.

What is the reason for this? Scientists assume that the many sunny days, the rich Mallorcan soil, but also the colder days in winter, against which the plant has to defend itself, have the effect that the plant has to strengthen itself from the inside and thus produces more aloverose.

What is Aloverose (Acemannan) actually good for?

Aloverose is produced by the plant to protect itself from bacteria and viruses. The same thing happens when it is applied to the skin! The essential oils contained in the active ingredient have an anti-inflammatory effect, glycosides and saponins act antiseptic and cleansing.

Countless vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and selenium penetrate in the deeper layers of the skin through the lignin (a plant-based molecule) contained in the juice.

In addition, the use of aloe vera gel accelerates cell division in the skin. For this reason, aloe vera gel is also very popular in medicine.

All these characteristics make a real miracle cure for blemishes, acne, puffiness, dry skin, and wrinkles out of the wonder plant.
Thanks to the careful hand-harvest, the subsequent gentle processing, and the avoidance of pesticides, we can guarantee that our organic membrane masks are produced with the best aloe vera gel available.
