Aloe vs Water
Every product uses a base ingredient that is listed first on the label. This ingredient makes up the most of the product, meaning if the first ingredient listed is water, the product is mostly water. In fact, most products on the market are made up with 88% to 90% water. Water itself isn't intended to provide any benefit to your skin and is unable to penetrate the skin barrier. So why do other companies use water as their primary ingredient? Because water is the cheapest ingredient in cosmetic products.
We only use organic Aloe Vera as the base to our products, not water. Unlike water, Aloe Vera is a powerful nutrient made up of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and moisturizing polysaccharides. All of which penetrate the skin barrier delivering deep hydration and a myriad of benefits to your skin. By using organic Aloe Vera, we are able to maximize the results of your skincare routine.
