Aloe in dentistry

He asserts that toothpaste made from aloe or an extract of aloe helps combat bleeding and gingivitis in the gums, and helps to prevent tooth decay without the abrasive action which prolonged use causes tooth decay itself.
Aloe mixed with jojoba helps eliminate chapped lips and fever blisters.
Aloe in beauty care
Aloe is a very important element in many types of beauty products. Facial cleansing is essential for keeping your face soft and supple.
Aloe has two components: lignin (cellulose) and polysaccharide (carbohydrates), which truly penetrate the three layers of skin, the epidermis, the dermis and the hypodermis, and cleans out bacteria and oil deposits that block your pores. Also, the natural nutrients like minerals, vitamins, the 19 amino acids and enzymes stimulate the reproduction of new cells, replacing the dead skin cells.
If the epidermis can’t get rid of these cells and oil, the skin pores will become blocked and the sweat glands won’t be able to function correctly. Infections begin to form in the skin.
Due to its power to regenerate, heal, tone and its ability to penetrate deeply, aloe is used in moisturizing creams, night creams, masks, shampoos, toning creams and facial cleansing creams etc. It is also used in suntan and other skin protection lotions.
Aloe is also used in creams for muscular and rheumatic pain and stiffness. Also, in gelatin form, it is used to combat acne.
