There are more than 240 different varieties of Aloe vera and they grow mainly in the dry regions of Africa, Asia, Europe and America. Four species are considered to have very nutrient rich content, of which Aloe Barbadensis Miller is the foremost and therefore most used in products manufactured today. The Aloe gel which is extracted from the plant contains more than 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds including 20 minerals, 18 amino acids and 12 vitamins. Aloe vera is one of the most nutritious plants in the world and has been used for thousands of years mainly because of its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to quickly penetrate all our skin layers. It is only recently that Aloe vera’s other uses in areas such as dental care has been recognised. The Aloe Barbadensis Miller used in our toothpaste is IASC-certified.
