Aloe vera, which bears the botanical name of Aloe barbadensis, has been a key ingredient in cosmetics for thousands of years. No, this is not an exaggeration. Cleopatra and Nefertiti even called it the plant of immortality. The reason behind the success of aloe vera over time is simple: it has benefits for the skin.
To be more precise it is exactly aloe; the juice found in the leaves of aloe vera, which is extracted and used in the cosmetics. At Omy Laboratories, we have made aloe the key ingredient in our customized foundation.
First of all, aloe is the chosen ingredient because as well as being natural, it can be astringent. This means that it can tighten the pores of your skin and regulate the secretion of sebum in your face.
Since aloe is mainly made up of water, about 99%, it also moisturizes all types of skin, even the most sensitive.
Finally, its content of sugars (mainly acemannan and aloin), vitamins and minerals helps to soothe superficial burns and itching, and also help to heal minor skin damage, such as small scars left by acne.
Omy's customized foundation provides a lightweight, natural finish which leaves no greasy residue for a pleasant light all-day feel. Thanks to aloe, our foundation will conquer all skin types, even the most sensitive!
Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
