When I think of Aloe vera, I reminisce of vacations to Lanzarote where there is an abundance of this being sold at the hotel poolsides every day.  There was never a day would go by whereby I did not stop to apply some free samples on display outside local shops at either Costa Teguise or Playa del Carmennaissance-aloe-vera-gel

Aloe vera grows wild in tropical climates around the world and is cultivated for agricultural and medicinal uses.  It is an ingredient in many consumer products including juice, skin lotion, or ointments for minor burns and sunburns.

There is little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of Aloe vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes. Scientific studies finding positive evidence are frequently contradicted by other studies.

When there is conflicting scientific evidence as to the benefits of Aloe vera, the cosmetic and alternative medicine industries regularly make claims regarding the soothing, moisturising, and healing properties of aloe vera. Whatever your take on this, aloe vera gel has become very popular in the U.K. and ‘the jury is still out’ as far as I am concerned.

The Aloe Gel on display was exclusively and organically developed by Naissance direct from an approved farmer in Spain and formulated with local experts, academics and a specialist laboratory.

This gel can be used on the body, face and hair. Naissance Aloe Vera Gel may soothe, cool and moisturise the skin, and help ease the pain, discomfort and damage caused by sunburn. This is very popular with Brits on holiday, regular users of ‘stand and tan’ machines in the U.K. and the symptoms of skin conditions including eczema, dry skin and acne.

This was developed using a special Naissance formulation to deliver a high concentration of aloe in this highly effective gel. Naissance products are not tested on animals and they are vegan friendly. Packaged using sustainable paper and cardboard. Kind to you and the environment.


Naissance Aloe Vera Gel is made from the inner gel of the Aloe vera leaf. They have formulated the gel based on customer suggestions and feedback to provide the best Aloe Vera Gel for use on the skin and hair.

Naissance buy their Aloe vera direct from their regular supplier in Spain that they know it is of the highest quality and grown using organic farming methods. By growing and bottling their Aloe Vera Gel in Europe they have reduced their carbon footprint and can logistically and audit trail wise trace the product from source to shelf.

This should stored in a cool, dry place away from sunlight.
