Research conducted by Ivan E. Danhof, Ph.D., M.D., retired professor of clinical pharmacology and physiology at the University of Texas, and author of a three-book series on Aloe, shows Aloe vera gel penetrates human skin almost four times faster than water . Because Aloe is a super penetrator, it is added to moisturizers and shampoos, and aftershave creams.
As a super emollient and emulsifier, Aloe vera gel penetrates and moisturizes the under layers of skin .
and other researchers observed that when Aloe vera
is combined with other healing substances, it can help these substances penetrate the skin easily and deeply.
