Aloe vera soothes and protects. Aloe is an amazing plant containing over 130 different constituents which soothe and heal a huge variety of skin complaints from mild cuts, insect stings, bruises to eczema. For example, one study into psoriasis found that aloe vera gel displayed anti-inflammatory effects superior to 1% hydrocortisone cream or a placebo gel. It also has moisturising and anti-ageing properties. Aloe gel, extracted from the central part of the aloe leaf, can be found in many of our products. Aloe contains active compounds that can help to reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate skin growth and repair. For this reason, aloe vera gel has gained tremendous popularity for relief of burns. In one study, burn sites treated with aloe healed completely in less than 16 days compared to 19 days for sites treated with silver sulfadiazine. In a review of the scientific literature, researchers found that patients who were treated with aloe vera healed an average of almost 9 days sooner than those who were not. However, other studies show mixed results. Aloe is best used for minor burns and skin irritations and should never be applied to an open wound.
Calendula has anti-inflammatory antiseptic, anti-oxidant and anti-viral effects. It is often applied to the skin to help burns, bruises and cuts heal faster, and to fight the minor infections they cause. Studies show that calendula helps wounds heal faster, maybe by increasing blood flow to the wounded area and by helping the body make new tissue.
Chamomile is one of the best skincare herbs available and is particularly useful for skin conditions such as contact dermatitis (eczema). This apple-scented herb is antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. It is also considered to be hypoallergenic with the ability to neutralise skin irritants.
