My little pot of medicine – Aloe Vera

Even before I started Eco Tan, I have had a long love and trust in Aloe Vera. I couldn’t imagine life without this healing plant. You will even find an Aloe plant at the front door of my home in Queensland, Australia. I am constantly snapping of a leaf for a visitor, proclaiming all the benefits!

You will find Certified Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice in most of our award-winning tanning and body care products, such as:


Aloe Vera is renowned for its medicinal qualities as it is packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proteins and antioxidants. The benefits of this plant are countless, but just to highlight a few:

? Anti-inflammatory and cooling properties help reduce redness and soothe sunburn

? Natural healing properties have been shown to heal wounds, cuts, scars and even insect bites

? Antibacterial and antimicrobial properties can protect the skin from bacteria to reduce acne

? Aloe Vera has been shown to fight signs of ageing and improve skin elasticity (as it is rich in Vitamins C and E)

? Research has shown that Aloe Vera improves skin hydration and provides long lasting moisture to soothe dry skin and rashes

? Aloe Vera can also be used to treat more severe skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema

… and the list goes on and on (read more at Natural Living Ideas)


Not only is it amazing on the skin, Aloe leaf juice also has a great effect on GERD (heartburn). I know this from personal experience, because I use to have gerd. If I partake in too much acid forming foods and beverages, it comes back to haunt me…


Now you can see why I choose to use Aloe Vera in so many of my Aussie-made organics!
