Aloe Vera - one of the first medicinal plants, to which our ancestors drew attention. This succulent was used in ancient Egypt, Rome, Mesopotamia and China, and was called "the plant of immortality."

If it is removed in a cool place, it will harden again and save all useful properties. The color of the oil may vary from yellowish-green to brown.
Solid oil Aloe Vera 100% (without impurities) is obtained by cold pressing of aloe leaves. The leaves consist of 95% of the water, and all the nutritional components "fit" into the remaining 5%.
