Aloe Vera is an amazing plant with fantastic healing qualities. Sometimes we use aloe and aloe vera interchangeably, but aloe is the genus or group of plants and vera is the most common species in that genus. It contains Vitamins A, C, E and B12. Aloe plants also have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral, antiseptic, and antioxidant properties. Aloe Vera is a succulent, similar to cactus, because they store a lot of moisture in their leaves since they live in very hot, dry climates like deserts. Now you know why we had to include it in the world’s most healing lip balm – ChopSaver Lip Care!
