Aloe vera for skin diseases

Gel-Aloe-Vera-Filet

The power of Aloe vera

Pure Aloe vera juice, the main component of all our products, has a particularly intensive effect on the skin. It not only supports the natural process of constant skin cell regeneration but is also a large reserve of nutrients with high bio-availability for new cell regeneration. The valuable vital ingredients from the inside of fresh Aloe vera leaves bind the moisture saturated with active ingredients, and release it when needed.

Santaverde only manufactures cosmetic products and no medical preparations.  It is difficult to make a general product recommendation for skin diseases. In any case, we recommend to consult a doctor. The following recommendations are based on the experiences of our beauticians and scientists as well as customers with skin diseases. Personal advice for your individual skin needs can be obtained from the Santaverde beautician near you.

Couperose

Couperose is a hereditary vascular dilation of the facial area. It usually appears from the age of 30 onwards when a hereditary weakness of the connective tissue is present. Initially, there is only a temporary reddening, particularly on the nose and cheeks, which can later become permanent.

Which products are suitable?

As we offer very light products with a higher proportion of hydrophilic substances and fewer oils, this skin condition normally tolerates our creams very well and benefits from the soothing, cooling and cell-regenerating properties of Aloe vera.

For cleansing, we recommend the aloe vera cleansing milk. For toning you can use the aloe vera toner sensitive. The pure aloe vera gel used as a serum delivers a lot of moisture. For subsequent skincare, use one of our basic facial moisturiser, if the Couperose is more severe, you should use our unperfumed moisturisers. Choose creme light, medium or rich according to the richness required.

Neurodermatitis

Neurodermatitis (also called atopic eczema) is a chronic, non-infectious skin disease. The main symptoms are red, scaling, sometimes also weeping eczemas on the skin and severe itching. The illness proceeds in stages and has an individual appearance, dependent on the age of the sufferer.

Which products are suitable?

Our customers often tell us that they have been satisfied with the success of the following products when treating neurodermatitis:

We recommend our aloe vera cleansing milk for cleansing. As a toner, you can use the aloe vera toner classic or the aloe vera toner sensitive, depending on your skin's needs. The aloe vera hydro repair gel used as a serum supplies a lot of moisture to irritated skin. For subsequent care, use one of our facial moisturisers – also available without fragrance for sensitive skin. Choose between creme light, medium or rich depending on the richness required. 

Rosacea

Rosacea is a facial skin condition usually beginning in the fifth decade of life similar to acne with burning sensations and spot-like and sometimes scaly reddening as well as inflammatory papules and pustules, later in some cases also tuberous growths of the nose.

It is a relatively frequent inflammation of the facial skin with a chronic development in stages. The actual cause of Rosacea is not known, however diet plays an important part as well as the correct skincare.

Which products are suitable?

As we offer very light products with a higher proportion of hydrophilic substances and fewer oils, this skin condition normally tolerates our creams very well and benefits from the soothing, cooling and cell-regenerating properties of Aloe vera. We recommend that you try to use our products without fragrance however.

As a gentle cleanser, you can use our aloe vera cleansing milk. The aloe vera toner sensitive as a subsequent moisture dispenser is often well tolerated as it serves as an additional fat-free moisture dispenser and soothes the skin. As a skincare cream, we recommend if required the aloe vera creme light, which you can massage into the skin, still damp from toner. When the skin is very inflamed or has individual blemishes, you can also use the pure aloe vera gel. You can either use it alone or mix it with creme light.

Acne

Acne is a disease (mainly) of the sebaceous glands at the base of hair follicles that initially causes non-inflammatory blackheads but can later lead to a series of inflammatory efflorescences such as papules, pustules and nodules.

Which products are suitable?

Natural skincare made from fresh Aloe vera plant juice is one of the most effective and also most natural ways of caring for skin prone to acne. However, it is not possible to give special product advice tailored to your skin type from a distance. Not every acne has the same presentation and every acne has different "phases". The monthly cycle, stress and especially diet have an effect on the skin's appearance.

Generally however, customers report successful outcomes after using the following products: A good and thorough cleansing with aloe vera cleansing gel is particularly important. Afterwards use the aloe vera toner classic. We then recommend the aloe vera creme light, that you can massage into the skin, still damp from the toner. When the skin is very inflamed or there are individual spots, you can also use the pure aloe vera gel. You can use this alone or mix it with the creme light.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a skin disease characterized mainly by dot-sized to palm-sized skin areas with severe scaling (often on the knees, elbows and scalp). Psoriasis is a non-infectious, inflammatory dermatitis.

Which products are suitable?

Some customers suffering from psoriasis only tolerate fresh Aloe vera plant leaves or alternatively the juice aloepur, the 100% pure drinking juice. Most customers cope very well with the unperfumed pure aloe vera gel, the aloe vera toner classic or the aloe vera toner sensitive. For customers requiring lipids on the skin in addition to the moisturising Aloe vera, we recommend our unperfumed cremes light, medium or rich (depending on the level of oils required).
