The lovely Cassandra Davis includes a hefty amount of aloe vera gel in BFree Organics, her range of handcrafted, naturally formulated products. She explains why this gooey green stuff is great for skin.
What are the skin loving benefits of Aloe Vera Gel?
Oh there are sooo many benefits, I don’t know where to start! Aloe is super soothing and hydrating for the skin. It’s one of my personal favorites because of all the medicinal properties it has. In my household it is a definite necessity for cuts, burns, rashes, dry skin, eczema… you name it, and it will heal.
What products include this ingredient?
I decided to honor Aloe Vera Gel by making it the main ingredient in the BFree Fresh Facial Cleanser. It’s a versatile product that can also be used as a healing mask, when left on the face and décolleté. It is very simple yet effective cleanser. Aloe Vera Gel is also found in the Daily Moisturizer. This is a non-oily moisturizer that generates glowing healthy skin. It is also found in the BFree makeup remover.
What results can you expect to see?
First thing to notice is the softness of the skin. Organic Aloe Vera Gel hydrates instantly and aids in rejuvenating aged, sun damaged skin. Aloe Vera can be used on normal, oily, dry, and acneic skin types. Even people with chronic skin disorders, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, can use Aloe Vera Gel and heal damaged skin.
What customers are saying about it…
Customers love the simplicity of the Cleanser. They say it refreshes their skin, heals acne and/or dry, sun damaged skin. As for the moisturizer, I have a lot of clientele that have sensitive skin that use it and they tell me it’s the only moisturizer they’ve been able to use in years that doesn’t flare their fair complected skin tone. Added bonus is the plethora of antioxidants, vitamin C and E that aid in keeping the skin firm and youthful.
Name one product that you can’t live without. (Just for fun, cuz we all want to know!)
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE and can not live without Daily Moisturizer. It’s a lifesaver in my household. My kids use it as a body lotion, and I am forever having to make it by the jar load. It is a unisex product and my husband ( who doesn’t like anything on his face) also uses it on a daily basis.
My edible experience with the products
Besides totally connecting with Cassandra online (I think she’s AWESOME and the real natural deal), the products that I tried feel wonderful. Thanks to aloe vera gel being one of the first ingredients in many of the formulas, I can actually detect its cooling, healing, and soothing effects the moment I use a bit on my skin.
My favorite product quickly became the Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20. I can’t get enough of it! It’s the perfect texture for layering under makeup because it sinks in right away and leaves my skin hydrated and non-greasy, without a white residue. Again, the aloe vera offers a healing sensation like your skin is being shielded from the elements. It has become a staple product in my morning routine right before applying foundation because it really does feel different from other moisturizer sunscreens.
Daily Moisturizer (SPF 20) Ingredients: Aloe Vera Gel, Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, Pink Grapefruit, Himalayan Cedarwood and Neroli Essential Oils with Natural SPF from Shea
The Cleanser distinguished itself right away by the way it felt on my skin—again, both cooling and healing which is just the thing to soothe my often reactive skin. Its texture is non-foaming and very gentle—perfect for washing my face in the mornings. It is less effective at removing makeup, so I use the Makeup Remover first, followed by this cleanser.
What’s nice about the makeup remover is that it’s a combination of oil and gel so it doesn’t leave a greasy residue on the skin. My skin is left hydrated, clean, but not overly scrubbed or parched. When I want to take off my face at night, I have been reaching for this product more and more. I love the sprig of lavender that Cassandra puts into the bottle. It gives it a “freshly handmade” feel to it.
Cleanser Ingredients: Aloe Vera Gel, Vegetable Glycerin, Geranium Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil, and Vitamin E.
