Inner leaf aloe gel from an Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant is beneficial for humans and animals when consumed as a drink or when used as a topical product, so what exactly can aloe do to boost your lifestyle?

Goodness from the inside out

You can also tackle skin from the inside out with our trusted Forever Aloe Vera Gel. Aloe can benefit skin, hair and nails, and since this gel is 99.7% pure, its purifying properties can work from within to give you that aloe glow.

What better way to increase experience the aloe-goodness than with our Forever Aloe Vera Gel? Our aloe vera is cultivated on fertile soils in a climate that enjoys over 2,000 hours of sunshine a year, and it’s even been certified by the International Aloe Science Council for its purity. This drinking gel is as close to the real thing as you can get, boasting 99.7% inner leaf aloe gel, lovingly extracted by hand so that you can experience the true power of nature. Aloe is great for skin, the immune system and it’s an ideal digestive aid, and now this purifying gel also contains vitamin C. Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.

And what is more? Our Forever Aloe Vera Drinking Gels are available in a variety of flavours, from the sweet tartness of Forever Aloe Berry Nectar and juicy ripeness of Forever Aloe Peaches, to the tropical twist of Forever Aloe Mango and refreshing orange-flavour of Forever Freedom, which also contains added glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM.

Aloe has also been praised for its ability to elevate skincare thanks to its gentle but powerful ability to provide natural moisturisation. Did you know that a global survey in 2017 identified that hydration and moisturisation are the most sought after benefits that people look for from skincare? That’s why Forever also decided to harness the power of aloe and combine it with scientifically-proven ingredients to create products that go above and beyond, and these products actually contain ingredients that enhance the efficacy of aloe!

It soothes irritation

The aloe vera plant has been given many colloquial names over the years. You may have heard it referred to as the ‘burn plant’, ‘miracle plant’ or ‘first aid plant’, and this is because of its innate soothing properties and the fact that it has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Forever has captured aloe at its best in Aloe Vera Gelly, a topical gel that is essentially identical to aloe vera’s inner leaf, delivering 84% of pure aloe to the skin. This thick gel can be used to safely lubricate sensitive tissue and to calm irritation. Use it on minor irritations to moisturise, soothe and condition skin without staining clothes. Every household and every first aid kit should contain a tube of Aloe Vera Gelly!

It balances your complexion

Skin is a very sensitive organ which is why a very fine, slightly acidic film sits on its surface. This is known as the acid mantle and it works as a barrier to protect skin against bacteria and viruses. Although fluctuations can occur naturally, sometimes the acid mantle is overly sensitive, and it’s thrown completely out of balance. This can be due to harsh cleansers or environmental exposure. Now, we already know that aloe is an amazing skincare ingredient, and one of the reasons it’s so good is because its natural pH is around 5.5, the same pH-value assigned to healthy skin. Aloe also assists other ingredients so that they can absorb into the skin. These natural benefits of aloe, along with the skin-loving nutrients it blesses us with, have inspired Forever’s gel-based skincare collection, Sonya Daily Skincare. Sonya Daily Skincare works to balance combination skin – that’s skin that’s sometimes dry, sometime oily, sometimes both and sometime neither (often referred to as ‘normal’). Sonya Daily Skincare consists of four gel-based products that work together to balance skin fluctuations. The products can be used by anyone aged 12-45 who is looking for a skincare range that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils. This advanced skincare range uses gel-encapsulation technology to combine ingredients that would otherwise separate, keeping them tight together until they hit the skin. Once on the skin, these ingredients disperse to where they are needed most, melting into the skin like butter. The collection includes a non-drying cleanser (Refreshing Gel Cleanser) that cleans skin with rich antioxidants, an Illuminating Gel that enhances your natural glow by brightening skin tone and minimising pores, a Refining Gel Mask that deeply moisturises and balances skin while you sleep, and a lightweight moisturiser (Soothing Gel Moisturizer) containing hydrolysed collagen to help improve skin bounce.

It’s easy to see why many people adore aloe vera now that you know how it can benefit you, and that’s why we’re challenging you to put it to the test. Forever Aloe Vera Gel, Aloe BioCellulose Mask, Aloe Vera Gelly and Sonya Daily Skincare all contain the very best of aloe’s inherent properties, and we guarantee you’ll be impressed.
