5 Benefits to using Organic Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has been utilized in many ways since the Ancient Egyptians named it "the plant of immortality."
It is virtually unparalleled when it comes to skin and hair; so it's no surprise that it works wonders in the beard department. Here's why:
1) Alleviates Itching and Dryness
Aloe Vera has been shown to soothe all kinds of skin conditions and irritations - from Eczema to Seborrheic dermatitis. These are both common ailments of the beardsman. Fortunately, Aloe Vera can help; it attacks the fungi and bacteria that cause these skin conditions and restores the skins PH balance to its optimum level.
Aloe Vera has amazing penetration qualities due to the lingin found in the Aloe Barbadensis Leaf. It also has many similarities to keratin which is the naturally occurring protein found in hair cells. The Aloe Vera is able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and nourish from within.
Aloe Vera has been utilized to reduce inflammation for thousands of years. The reason for this is two little ingredients called Bradykinase, an analesgic anti-inflammatory enzyme along with salicylic acid which is a natural pain reliever. It's because of these ingredients that Aloe is excellent for any redness, discomfort, or skin inflammation.
4) Reduces Beard Dandruff
Beards are an ideal environment for fungus to grow and live which is where dandruff comes from. It's no different than the hair on your head when it comes to harboring bacteria, and for that reason many beardsmen suffer from beard dandruff - also known as "beardruff." Aloe Vera has alkalizing properties that eliminates the acidic environment in which this bacteria grows. It is vital that you maintain the proper PH balance underneath your beard and Aloe Vera allows you to do that.
5) Promotes Beard Growth
Many cases regarding lack of hair growth point us to the same thing: dead skin sells are blocking the passage of nutrients by clogging the hair follicles. Aloe Vera is packed with enzymes and amino acids that not only break down those dead skin cells, but then replenish them.
To call Aloe Vera a superfood would be an understatement. It's jam packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids that are vital to a healthy beard. That is why we here at Beard Necessities, have built our conditioner around this ingredient. Give it a try, you will not regret it!
