Did you know in 26 seconds, 60% of what you apply to your skin reaches your bloodstream? That's a key reason we are all about simple ingredients you can actually identify, read and understand.
One of our favorite ingredients is aloe vera! For over 6,000 years aloe vera has been known for its medicinal properties and is often referred to as the ‘plant of immortality’. Aloe is widely known for its healing properties, its ability to increase the skin’s collagen production and improve skin elasticity. While we feel like aloe has magical healing properties it's not actually magic. Aloe is full of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. We love to add it to practically everything we make!
As a young girl, I remember my mom slicing open our family's aloe plant and slothing my sunburnt skin with the open cool and sticky blades. While direct from the plant did ultimately make my skin feel so much better now that I'm older, I try to avoid the sunburn and enjoy my aloe from Pure Energy Apothecary body care (moisturizing, soothing and minus the sticky).
Speaking of sunburn. Did you sneak away to the sunshine for winter break and find your winter skin kissed by the sun? If so, don't worry, there is plenty of Pure Energy Apothecary products to go around!
Here's to your healthy skin!
