These ointments do not cause any side effect and can be used as a moisturizer or body gel at the same time.
Modern clinical studies show that aloe is one of the best herbs for soothing the skin and healing burns, rashes, frostbite, and severe wounds. It is also used to treat eczema, dandruff, acne, ringworm, gum disease, poison oak and ivy. Aloe is found commercially in a number of creams and lotions for softening and moisturizing the skin. Aloe vera gel contains over 200 natural compounds, which speed up the healing of sunburn too. One reason why aloe vera promotes fast healing is the fact that it increases cell renewal.
