Aloe Vera is often promoted as a wonder ingredient in cosmetics and medicine. It is supposed to have healing, soothing and rejuvenating properties. No wonder, you see a lot of new generation cosmetics and drugs claiming to contain aloe vera.
A closer look at the various technical literature shows that there is no concluding scientific evidence to prove its beneficial properties. There are even some cautionary remarks about the indiscriminate use of aloe vera.
Wonder what is the real truth.
