As a member of the succulent plant family, organic aloe vera has been widely used as a natural treatment for dermatitis throughout the ages. The clear, soothing gel found within the aloe plant has been applied as an ointment to treat varying types of cuts, scrapes, wounds, burns, and rashes for at least 6,000 years. Within the natural products category aloe vera is one of the most studied products. The aloe is held in high esteem for its infection-fighting antibacterial properties and the anti-inflammatory agent that is used in drinks, natural skincare and relief against sun damage.
Many companies claim they use organic aloe vera in their products, but how can you tell which aloe vera products are safest? At Terra, we select each of our ingredients with careful consideration for what’s safest for a baby’s sensitive skin. That’s why we choose only certified 100% organic aloe vera, that is free from any additives as one of our key ingredients. Not only is the wipe effective at cleaning the skin, the addition of gentle, organic aloe vera to our wipes means it offers natural protection and healing.
As any parent suffering sleep deprivation will attest to, diaper rash is chief among these skin conditions affecting babies. The good news is that aloe vera is a safe, natural remedy to relieve baby’s painful rash. In fact a National Institute of Health study confirmed the therapeutic effectiveness of organic aloe vera on diaper rash, healing and soothing baby’s delicate skin. Aloe vera also contains infection-fighting antibacterial properties and anti-inflammatory agents like B-sitosterol, vitamins B and C, as well as minerals such as zinc, and skin-friendly vitamin E. In addition to diaper rash, it can be used as a topical relief for dryness, cradle cap, or any mild skin irritation your baby may be having a reaction to.
