A cactus like plant cultivated in the dry and hot climate of the subtropical regions, aloe vera is known to heal many skin conditions such as, acne, rash, burns, irritation. Not just the skin, it is applied to hair as well, for its anti-dandruff properties. With time, the demand for this ingredient has increased so much that not only have people started growing aloe vera at home, but many high-end beauty brands have also come up with aloe vera infused bath and beauty products.
We have shortlisted five such brands that you can check out for their aloe vera skincare range of products.
