Aloe Arborescens is very well known in Brazil under the name “Baboso”, (derived from the word ”baba”, a type of sap present in certain plants), it belongs to the Liliacee plant family and has the same luscious foliage as members of the cactus family.
The plant has been recognised and utilised for centuries due to its medicinal properties linked to beauty, health, and skin and hair care.
Approximately 300 species have been documented, some of which are more nutritious and effective than others. Aloe Arborescens being the most beneficial species of all.
Despite many years of study of resin obtained from the leaves of the Aloe Arborescens plant its use in the past was much hindered by a tendency for it to lose part of its beneficial powers due to the rapid oxidisation of its gel.
Only in recent years has it been possible to stabilise the gel and preserve it through natural cooling processes, thereby conserving its principal active properties.
