Organic Aloe Vera from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas is our primary ingredient (not water) for our Ultra Aloe Care products.
Only the precious inner gel without the rind (which has no nutritional value) is used because it contains over 200 compounds chief among which are 20 minerals, 18 amino acids (8 of which are essential and cannot be produced by the body), 12 vitamins and anti-oxidants, 12 natural substances that inhibit inflammation, moisturizing plant sugars known as polysaccharides, and activating enzymes.
As you can see, Aloe Vera gel is very complex, not a simple juice like many plants but a composite of numerous biologically active ingredients.
The finest plants cultivated in North America are hand-picked, and then hand filleted to ensure that only the purest innermost gel with no harmful sapoins is used. HGC then uses a cold stabilization process (the secret of our gel) to preserve 100% of the enzymatic activity. To that we add organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice concentrate to produce 200% Aloe Vera doubling the benefits!
Because Aloe Vera is capable of transepidermal penetration, it is a great vehicle to transport all those nutrients plus others that HGC selects for each Skin Type such as: Squalane, Olive Oil, Grape Seed Extract, Evening Primrose, Zinc, Organic Collagen, Sodium PCA, Super Oxide Dismutase, Jojoba, Hyaluronic Acid, Royal Jelly, Wheat Geram Oil, Horse Chestnut, Essential Fatty Acids, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Marine Peptides, Rose Water, Cucumber, Copper, Vitamin K, Chamomile, Co Q10, Vitamins (A, C, E), Acai Juice, Calendula, Bioflavanoids, and Selenium.
200% Aloe Vera transports this incredible nutrition down to all three layers of skin. This deep penetration feeds developing cells and renews the collagen and elastic network that supports the skin. Research now confirms that fibroblast cells in the dermis, responsible for making the skin-supporting protein and collagen, increases 6 to 8 times faster that normal when Aloe Vera is applied. This dynamic Duo: 200% Organic Aloe Vera and specialized nutrients produce a “FOOD FOR YOUR SKIN” that we call Ultra Aloe Care.
