Aloe Vera powder use in cosmetics?
- When Aloe Vera powder is dissolved into water, it creates a solution that can be easily added to cosmetic formulas, but the concentrated nature of the powder makes it possible to add directly into formulations at very low doses. A mere 1 percent addition of Aloe Vera powder to a product, which equates to about 1 gram, creates the same potency as pure aloe juice squeezed from a fresh plant. Since Aloe Vera powder has a considerably longer shelf life than Aloe Vera gel, it is easier to maintain.
- Aloe Vera’s versatile nature and many beneficial properties makes it a valuable addition to most cosmetics and self-care products. Toothpaste, mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, hand sanitiser, skin salve, face scrub, and makeup are just a few of the most popular uses for Aloe Vera powder. Aloe’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties make it an excellent oral health tool, it has both soothing and hydrating properties to revive dull hair and help relieve dandruff. When blended with essential oils, witch hazel, and other natural ingredients, Aloe Vera can act as a powerful remedy within most topical products.
