This aloe gel from a Korean brand called Klair’s is not your average aloe vera gel!
It contains four main ingredients:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Portulaca Oleracea Extract
Witch Hazel Water
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
Portulaca Oleracea has been used to treat insect or snake bites on the skin, boils, sores, pain from bee stings, and other things like digestive problems, etc. So you can guess that the extract will help with after sun care. Camellia Sinensis is also known as green tea extract. I did a little research on how it can benefit the skin, but apparantly there hasn’t been so much research done on camellia sinensis benefits on skin. But skin experts say it’s a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging ingredient. As for the Witch Hazel, I think most of us knows that witch hazel has many benefits for the skin. The primary active ingredient in witch hazel is the tannins, which have astringent properties, that help to tighten and constrict blood vessels and restore vessel and skin tone. Witch hazel can be used to relieve itching, sooth minor burns, treat sun burns & bug bites, eczema, and so much more. This is definitely beneficiary for your after sun care! I used to use another product from a tanning lotion company, I cannot remember exactly the name right now, but one of the main ingredients contained witch hazel in it. And sometimes after an intense tanning session, it really helped sooth my skin and get rid of the sun bumps(?) I’d sometimes get. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice will help with soothing your skin, and serve as an anti-inflammatory.
