There are about 15 different species, all of which have medicinal properties. Nowadays, it is not uncommon to find them in the gardens and houses of our regions. Today, the one that particularly interests us is Aloe Barbadensis or aloe vera.
We, therefore, find in this plant several compounds with interesting properties:

- The gel: This is the transparent mucilage. That is the part that interests us for the skin because it is rich in natural photo elements.
- Nutrients: This plant contains many vitamins, minerals, etc.
