What is used from the plant
At the time of extraction of Aloe vera gel from the Aloe plant, either the whole Aloe leaf is used or sometimes only the inner part, the fillet, depending on the intended use for the gel. The most important factor in either case is the quality and the amount of percentage by volume of Aloe vera in the gel offered.
Why does Aloe vera work
Aloe vera contains a large array of nutrient ingredients whose combined effect and equilibrium yield a more powerful effect than can be expected when looking at the ingredients individually. The ingredients in Aloe vera work together and increase each other’s effect, giving a so-called synergistic effect.
