Centerchem a raw materials manufacturer in USA who sells aloe vera as a raw materail have posted some great information about Aloe Vera Gel, here some of it: Aloe vera gel is mainly composed of mucilaginous polysaccharides, which can retain a large amount of water, thus allowing the plant to live in drought conditions. These polysaccharides contain different proportions of mannose, glucose, galactose and include: glucomannan, glucomannan with glucuronic acid, galactogalacturonan, glucogalactomannan, galactoglucoarabionomannan and acetylated mannan.
Aloe Vera’s medicinal properties were very well known in the ancient times. Aloe history is full of facts, testimonies and legends: Sumerians seem to have been the first to mention aloe medicinal uses on clay tablets, in the times of the Akkad Kings. Ancient Egyptians used aloe for medicinal as well as for cosmetic applications. It is said that the shine of Cleopatra’s eyes was due to aloe eye drops and that the beauty of Nefertiti’s skin was due to her baths in aloe pulp and milk. Greeks considered aloe a symbol of beauty, patience, fortune and health. In one of his treatises, Hippocrates described some healing properties of aloe: he wrote that aloe promotes hair growth and relieves dysentery and stomach ache. Romans learned the healing virtues of aloe from their Carthaginian prisoners, who used this plant to heal their wounds. Dioscorides enthusiastically described the properties of aloe in his De Materia Médica, especially its ability to promote blood-clotting and to heal grazes, open sores, boils and hemorrhoids. He also suggested that fresh aloe pulp could stop hair fall and ophthalmia. Pliny the Elder (23-79 A.C.) described, in his Naturalis Historia, an original cure for dysentery by applying aloe enema. Bedouins in the Arabian Peninsula and Tuaregs in the Sahara know the virtues of aloe – which they call “Lily of the desert” – since ancient times. Hindus consider aloe one of the best secret plants mentioned in the Atharvaveda, where it is called “the silent healer”.
Aloe is mentioned in several Holy Books of the Bible. It is said that the secret behind the longevity of the Templar Knights was the elixir from Jerusalem, made out of aloe pulp, hashish and palm wine. Aloe is one of the16 sacred plants of American Indians.
In Japan, aloe is a Queen plant. Aloe can be eaten, drunk and used as a medicine in every form. In former times, samurais used to paint their bodies with aloe pulp before the battle, in order to expel the devils and become immortal. The Chinese pharmacopoeia by Li Shih-Shen (1518-1593) includes aloe among the plants with the best medicinal properties and calls it a “harmony remedy”.
Aloe vera gel has been popularly used for years to treat skin wounds, burns, cuts and several other skin disorders. It is also a habitual ingredient in a number of cosmetic products, because of its moisturizing and emollient properties.
Among the effects of Aloe Vera Gel Re- epithelizing activity: During the last few years, a number of studies have been published, which confirm the wound healing properties of aloe gel. The quick improvement and healing of wounds result from the synergic actions of different constituents in aloe gel, which stimulate fibroblast growth, angiogenesis and re-epithelization, and reduce the inflammatory phase. The outcome is an increase in collagen and glycosaminoglycans in the new repaired tissue. The active compounds responsible for these actions are: cell proliferation-promoting glycoproteins, allantoin and other low molecular weight components, which promote re-epithelization and angiogenesis, as well as sugars, polysaccharides and phenol compounds, which have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. The beneficial effects of aloe gel on the skin can be observed, not only on incision wounds, but also on other lesions. For example, in1935 aloe vera gel was first reported to heal acute radiation-induced dermatitis. Ever since, a number of studies have reported successful use of aloe on radiation, heat or freezing-induced skin burns and on chronic ulcers. In these cases, the observed pain relief and accelerated healing are related to the ability of aloe gel to reduce the concentration of tromboxans (powerful stimulators of pain and vasoconstriction in this type of lesions) and to stimulate the proliferation of fibroblasts, lymphocytes and neuronal cells. In 2009, Mendonça, F.A., et al., carried out an in vivo study on the effects of the application of aloe vera to wounds in animals, as the sole treatment as well as in conjunction with other treatments. The group treated with the gel showed an accelerated improvement in the condition of the wounds compared to the control group. This shows that Aloe Vera gel helps in wound closure and its implicit processes.
Anti-inflammatory activity: Much research has been done on the inflammatory activity of aloe gel, in order to identify its active principles and describe the corresponding action mechanisms. Research has been conducted using different animal inflammation models such as mice ear edema, rat plantar edema induced by a wide range of irritants and carrageenan and air pouch induced granuloma. It has been reported that the agents responsible for the anti-inflammatory action are chromones and sterols, because they inhibit prostaglandin synthesis and reduce lymphocyte migration and infiltration. Moreover, glycoproteins block antigen binding to the receptors on mast cells surface, thus reducing histamine release and leukotriene synthesis and secretion. Furthermore,the phenol compounds fraction contributes to modulate inflammation, because of its antioxidant action and its inhibitory action on leukocyte metalloproteinases, which reduce the deleterious effects of these mediators. Other aloe vera gel components also involved in the anti-inflammatory action are: magnesium lactate, which inhibits histidine decarboxylase and consequently, the conversion of histidine into histamine in mast cells and salicylates, which inhibit prostaglandin production from arachidonic acid by inhibiting cyclooxygenase. Research studies have demonstrated that both commercially available aloe gel and aloe extract significantly inhibit arachidonic acid oxidation in vitro. In 1996, Vázquez, B. et al., performed a study which proved that aloe vera gel has anti-inflammatory effects on induced edemas. Different aloe vera gel extracts were studied. It was observed that they reduced the edema and inhibited the action of compounds involved in inflammatory processes. Therefore, aloe vera gel’s properties as an inhibitor of inflammation and its consequences have been confirmed. On the other hand, a later study (Somboonwong, J. et al., 2000) also attested to the anti-inflammatory and curative properties of aloe vera gel on second degree burns in animals. The gel was topically applied on the wounds for 14 days. The results indicated that circulation and burn healing were significantly higher in the group treated with the gel. This gel’s pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects on burns and wounds have thereby been verified.
Moisturizing activity: Aloe vera is often used to treat skin lesions because of its emollient and soothing actions, which are mainly due to its mucilage content. Mucilages are hygroscopic – they absorb and retain water under certain conditions– a property that makes them good moisturizing agents.
