10 Things Aloe Vera Does for the Skin and Why Ancient Egyptians Called it the Immortality Plant

If you’re one of the millions of people around the world that keeps an Aloe Vera plant for decorative purposes in your home or office, you have what the ancient Egyptians called the "Immortality Plant."

Aloe has many descriptive names around the world - Native Americans knew the botanical as “Burn Plant,” – but every culture has been aware of its healing and anti-aging properties.

Hawaiian aloe is a primary ingredient in Total Activation’s Aloe Butter, part of the first total body transformation line that’s designed for men and women of all ages and any generation.

Drawings of the Aloe plant were found on temple walls during the time of the Pharaohs. Prior to the development of modern remedies, Aloe was one of the most frequently prescribed remedies by medical professionals in Western countries.

Healing of the “Immortality Plant”

Aloe’s predominant claim to fame is its natural properties that help ease the pain of burns and help wounds heal faster through its ability to stimulate the turnover of skin cells. It’s one of the fundamental reasons it’s used in skincare products. Aloe Butter will have your skin feeling silky smooth and looking rejuvenated by ridding the skin of dead skin cells. The ancients believed that the aloe’s properties that contributed to healing also gave them the blush of perennial youth. 

It’s an Easy Mixer

The parts of the aloe plant are easy to combine with a comprehensive array of complementary botanicals to enhance and boost overall efficacy.

Naturopathic Antibacterial

Aloe has natural antibacterial properties that make it an ideal ingredient in a skincare product if you have acne or suffer from adult breakouts.

A Super Moisturizer

The Aloe plant is 95 percent water and draws moisture to itself. That ability is transferred to your body when it’s applied to your skin. It hydrates and helps seal in moisture for a more youthful looking complexion

Powerful Antioxidants

Total Activation Aloe ButterKnown to grow even in harsh and dry conditions, the Aloe plant protects itself with naturally occurring botanical antioxidants. That same protective power is extended to you when it’s placed on your skin. It aids in neutralizing free radicals, the primary cause of fine lines and wrinkles, dry and damaged skin, and dull and prematurely aging skin.

Benefits Multiple Skin Conditions

Aloe is used to relieve a comprehensive range of skin damage ranging from sunburn to frostbite. It’s equally effective for addressing psoriasis, eczema, acne and inflammation. It works to soothe and heal damage to your skin on the surface and it’s easily absorbed to benefit cells in the dermis.

Vitamins, Minerals and Amino Acids

The Aloe plant is one of the most biologically active botanicals in the world. When you utilize aloe, you obtain the benefits of an exceptional range of nutrients the skin requires for health. Aloe contains vitamins A, B-12, C and E to fight free radicals, minerals that stimulate cell turnover and promotes cell rejuvenation, and 20 of the 22 essential amino acids your body needs.

Quickly Hydrates

You don’t have to wait weeks or months to see the difference that Hawaiian aloe can make in your skin. Aloe is a fast and effective re-hydrator that can make your skin look and feel better with the first application.

A Natural Ingredient

The aloe used in Total Activation’s Aloe Butter is a luxurious, all-natural botanical with no  dangerous chemicals or parabens and a clinically tested formula that supports skin health, hydration and radiance. 

Strengthens Skin

As it hydrates, Aloe strengthens the skin for increased elasticity by stimulating the production of collagen, a naturally occurring substance in your body. Collagen is responsible for providing your skin with the ability to “snap back” as it moves, thereby minimizing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that can give you an old or angry appearance. 

A Secret That the Egyptians Knew

The ancient Egyptians were just as concerned with the outward signs of aging and maintaining a youthful appearance as you are. Egypt’s royalty knew that the secret to beautiful and ageless skin fit for a queen was aloe – nature’s “Immortality Plant.”
