“We think of aloe as a pharmacy in a plant.” - Dr. Wendell Winters, Professor of Microbiology, University of Texas Health Science Center
Lexli products boast an aloe vera base, unlike most skin care products, which are usually water-based. Why is our aloe base best for your skin? • It's organic and free of impurities • Aloe penetrates skin better than water • Aloe hydrates skin and helps it heal
200+ Aloe has over 200 active components including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, polysaccharides and fatty acids. Research has proven its ability to heal skin damage.
How aloe helps the skin. Among the most common questions we receive at Lexli are, "why is aloe good for skin?" and "does the base of organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe vera in every Lexli product really make a difference?" Independent research has proven aloe's benefits to the skin. They include the following: -Aloe penetrates tissue Unlike water, which is used as the base ingredient of most skin care products, aloe can be absorbed deep into the skin’s layers. This is due to aloe’s lignin content – a substance similar to cellulose. Because aloe can be absorbed into the skin, aloe skin care products, like those offered by Lexli, can deliver active ingredients to the site of skin healing, rather than simply sitting on the skin’s surface. Aloe's ability to penetrate the skin also means that its 200+ active components have the ability to soothe and nurture. -Aloe encourages the healing of tissue Research, including that conducted by Lexli founder, Dr. Ahmed Abdullah, has demonstrated that aloe has an excellent ability to regenerate skin cells. This is due to the presence of gibberellin – a growth hormone-like substance that increases protein synthesis, and lectin – a protein that increases collagen activity and improves the collagen matrix. This fact makes it beneficial to skin that has been damaged - by UV exposure, acne, eczema and more. -Aloe has antimicrobial properties Aloe contains saponin and barbaloin, two components that are proven lethal against bacteria. This allows aloe to be effective in the treatment of skin conditions with a bacterial component, such as acne. Our acne solutions products offer a base of organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe specifically to help combat Propionibacterium Acnes (p. acnes), which is the bacteria responsible for acne. -Aloe reduces inflammation Aloe contains salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid, and sterols - both of which are recognized for their anti-inflammatory capabilities. Inflammation plays a role in nearly all skin conditions, making this feature extremely advantageous. Many Skin Care Products Include Aloe In Their Formulations. So What Makes Lexli So Different? -Pharmaceutical-grade aloe Like other cosmetic ingredients, aloe is available in a range of grades, with cosmetic-grade being the most commonly utilized in skin care products. At Lexli, we only use organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe, which is free from impurities. -A base of aloe vs. a negligible amount The main ingredient in Lexli products is organic, pharmaceutical-grade aloe, as evidenced by its position at the top of our ingredient lists. (Ingredient labels must list ingredients in order of concentration.) Many other brands include small amounts of aloe; hardly enough to generate improvements in the skin. -Certified by the International Aloe Science Council Lexli uses only aloe that has been certified by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC), a non-profit trade organization that is dedicated to providing the world with the highest quality of aloe. IASC certification demonstrates that the aloe has been properly harvested and processed to ensure optimum purity and bioactivity. This is vital because aloe’s active ingredients begin to decompose and lose their effectiveness soon after harvesting if not handled properly.
