What is Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a perennial plant similar to cactus that grows wild in Tropical and dry, arid zones around the world. It’s considered a Perennial plant because all the components of the plant can be used. The main use of this plant is to relieve sunburn and help heal wounds.
These properties are possible due to high amounts of Polyphenols contained in the Aloe Vera Gel and leaves. Polyphenols are known to inhibit the growth of bacteria that are responsible for the development of infections in humans.
