Is the Aloe Vera Plant Toxic? By Jonae Fredericks The aloe vera plant has a rich history in the realm of natural healing. Native to the Caribbean, Latin America and South Africa, the aloe vera plant produces a clear, gelatinlike substance that soothes burns and relieves skin conditions such as psoriasis when used topically. Aloin, also known as Barbaloin [Reynolds, Aloes - The genus Aloe, 2004], is a bitter, yellow-brown colored compound noted in the exudate of at least 68 Aloe species at levels from 0.1 to 6.6% of leaf dry weight (making between 3% and 35% of the toal exudate) (Groom & Reynolds, 1987), and in another 17 species at indeterminate levels [Reynolds, 1995b]. (c) Emodin suppressed migration of human SCFs toward the defect produced in the monolayer sheet in the serum-free medium. A linear defect of the same width was made in control (cA) or emodin-plus (cB) culture. Facial Mask Fabric Information Sheet ALOE What is Aloe?
