The Many Topical Uses of Aloe

Aloe’s amazing topical benefits have withstood the test of time! As one of history’s most beloved natural moisturizers, aloe vera is known for its soothing and remedial properties. But just how can you apply it in your daily skin and hair routines?


When other products just won’t do, aloe can be the perfect hair solution in a variety of ways. Let’s start with the scalp: applying 99% Aloe Vera Gelly to the top of our head can help moisturize dry skin right at the base. Not only does it help soothe your scalp, but its natural vitamins also strengthen our hair strands, unblock hair follicles, and can potentially promote further hair growth. Plus, some people use aloe as a non-stick hair styling gel that lasts the full day without flaking off.


Aloe is a great substitute for your shaving creams! Its easy-glide nature not only helps to moisturize your skin as you shave, but also helps avoid razor bumps and scrapes. You can just rub in any leftover gel for extra hydration.


Research has shown that using aloe daily can help keep our skin looking bright and revitalized. This is due to our aloe’s ability to hydrate at least three of our epidermal layers. It goes deep beneath the skin to keep skin healthy.

We’ve all experienced the desperate need for aloe vera after a long day in the sun. Overexposure out there can sap your skin of its moisture. Our 99% Aloe Vera Gelly quickly soothes your sensitive skin by cooling it down and helping to restore the moisture it may have lost.

Other Topical Uses

While the majority of us already knew aloe can help remedy sunburns, did you know it’s also great for cuticle maintenance, body scrubs, foot treatments, and eyebrow waxing?

When you think about it, our nails are constantly exposed to water, harsh soaps, and various items we interact with on a day to day basis. This can cause our cuticles to become dry and brittle, which can lead to painful cracks or discomfort. Gently massaging 99% Aloe Vera Gelly onto the area can keep it hydrated and easy to maintain.

Similarly, aloe works well at revitalizing and exfoliating rough and worn skin. Using a pumice stone with aloe gelly can do wonders for calloused feet, and there are plenty of DIY body scrubs that can help restore our body’s natural hydration!

Aloe’s natural anti-inflammatory properties also makes it a terrific after-care addition to any eyebrow or body waxing process. It effectively cools and rejuvenates the area by soothing at the point of contact.
