Aloe vera is a modest house plant that is actually a miracle plant hiding in plain sight - it is our first ingredient on nearly all Sugarmoon skin care products. Aloe is 95% water so it is an excellent product for hydration. 

When used in skin care products,  aloe doesn’t leave a greasy film on the face and the skin. In fact, it does just the opposite – it unclogs the pores and softens the skin.

Aloe vera has benefits for all skin types. Packed with vitamin C and E, beta-carotene; aloe is great to help fight common signs of aging,  but the antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties also make it great for acneic skin. It can also help promote skin elasticity which is great for everyone!

By destroying existing melanin cells and preventing further formation of melanin in the skin, the aloin in aloe vera helps to lighten hyperpigmentation of the skin (aka dark spots).

My favourite product from the Sugarmoon skin care line containing aloe is currently our Facial Cleansing Gel. Alongisde the aloe vera the key ingredients include sandalwood oil, jojoba oil, natural kakadu, quandong which also help to moisturize and fight signs of aging.

Sandalwood oil contains antioxidants that help maintain the buoyancy and structure of the skin cells. It also reduces dryness and replenishes the moisture in skin, increasing elasticity. Due to the rich antioxidant component, sandalwood can help prevent wrinkles by fighting free radical formation.

Kakadu plum brightens skin and can help fade pigmentation, even out skin tone and improve skin texture to restore and renew the complexion. Kakadu plum is a must-have if you want to get rid of a dull complexion and brighten your natural glow.

You can't go wrong with using aloe in your everyday skin care routine, there truly is a benefit for everyone!
