The Aloe Vera plant has been used for centuries as a skin treatment for everything from burns to cuts to moisturizing.
Quoted from WhyAloeVera.com:
"Aloe Vera enhances the activity of Fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are special cells found in the Skin that create Fiber such as Collagen & Elastin. These Fibers give Skin it's structure and make it look fleshy and supple. The more we have it the more YOUTHFUL we Look.
Deep in the Epidermis, Skin cells are rather large and very much alive when first formed but by the time they reach the surface (usually after 21-18 days in normal skin)they are a just a shade of their former nature and are transformed to slight flakes of Keratin which ultimately fall off. Aloe Vera gel provides the Essential Nutrients to nourish the basal cells."
