Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice, or simply Aloe Vera, has been used and LOVED for thousands of years! The benefits of aloe vera for skin care are pretty astounding. Just think about it...any plant that can stay super hydrated in the desert has to be amazing for the skin.
What I find so super amazing about this one powerful ingredient we've included in our Ultra Nourishing Day & Night Cream is the 200 nutritional substances packed within its leaves! That’s all packed into one ingredient. The benefits of aloe vera for skin that's healthy and hydrated are abundant.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera for Skin Don't Stop There...
Aloe is a super succulent and best friend to dry, damaged, irritable or even sensitive skin types. It's a "must-have" ingredient to soothe skin after sun exposure or other damaging activities like wind exposure. Another thing I really love about Aloe is it’s healing anti-inflammatory ability to soothe the skin. It reduces scars and helps wounds.
You know when it’s just too much to leave that little black head alone and you do a little more damage than you wanted to. Not only does it help the damage we may do, but also helps with acne, pimples and even rosacea.
But wait, there are more benefits of aloe vera for skin care!!!
Because of the salicylic acid and high antioxidant amounts, aloe again proves itself a must in a skin-care routine. That’s why it’s we chose to include this wildly potent ingredient in our Ali & Shay Ultra Nourishing Skin Cream.
Oh, guess what else? It protects from UV damage and can block up to 30% of those undesirable ultraviolet rays when applied generously. Yes please!
Thank you Aloe for giving us these amazing anti-aging and super healing benefits for hydrated, healthy, and nourished skin.

We’re getting multiple benefits from one simple ingredient. What more can you ask […]
