Mode of action of the Aloe Vera active substances
Although Aloe Vera Freeze Dry Powder is known for cosmetic and medical application, the mode of action is not the same in both cases. Certain Aloe Vera active substances cannot penetrate the skin barrier and are therefore only effective when they come into direct contact with the cells of the dermis, as in the case of a wound, for instance. Other substances, however, penetrate readily into the intact skin and are able to care for the skin very well by a moisturizing and soothing effect. Thus the effectiveness profile of the Aloe ingredients is divided into two categories, the cosmetic application field and the medical application field.
