Scientific Name: Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a succulent plant species which is found only in cultivation, having no naturally occurring populations, although closely related aloes do occur in northern Africa. The species is frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD. Extracts from A. Vera are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing, or soothing properties. There is, however, little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of Aloe Vera Extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes, and what positive evidence is available is frequently contradicted by other studies.
