What are the benefits for your skin?
If it wasn’t enough, the cooling sensation you get when applied to the skin is excellent for reducing swelling and calming sunburns.
In cosmetics, aloe is often used as an umbrella name to refer to several aloe species with similar benefits for the skin and hair such as Aloe barbadensis, secundiflora, or ferox. Aloe ferox is also known as bitter, red or Cape aloe. Like all aloes, it is a flowering, succulent plant that grows well in dry soils and tropical and arid climates. The fleshy, spiky leaves may take on a reddish tinge as they grow.
