Aloe Vera topical uses and benefits, 4 Feb 2014 [cached]
In studies conducted by Dr Ivan E. Danhof, M.D., Ph.D., president of North Texas Research Laboratories and a retired Professor of Physiology from the University of Texas, the interior gel from Aloe Vera was found to increase production of human fibroblast cells by six to eight times, as compared to normal cell reproduction. Fibroblast cells are found in the dermis of the skin and are responsible for fabricating collagen, the skin's support protein. During sun exposure and through the normal aging processes, fibroblasts slow their collagen production. As aging continues, the quality of collagen is lessened and wrinkling becomes deeper. Dr Danhof found that Aloe improved fibroblast cell integrity and also quickened the making of collagen.

Dr.Ivan Danhof is one of the world's leading authorities on aloe vera, its properties, uses and benefits. He is a former professor of physiology at the University of Texas and is president of North Texas Research Laboratories.
Dr. Danhof himself tested the effects on his own hands by daily applications of aloe vera to one hand, leaving the other hand untreated.
Dr. Ivan Danhof, who has acted as a consultant to many of the world's leading pharmaceutical research institutes and has advised organizations such as the US FDA, believes that aloe vera is beneficial to the whole gastro-intestinal system.
He maintains that due to its magnesium lactate content, aloe vera is able to lower activity in the stomach and is effective in reversing both occasional and chronic symptoms in the upper gastro-intestinal tract.
Dr. Danhof also found that under laboratory conditions, the presence of aloe vera could effect up to an eight-fold increase in the replication of human fibroblast cells the cells that are closely linked with the production of new collagen in the body.
Again, Dr. Danhof has found that calcium isocitrate salts in aloe vera can help people with heart problems or with a history of heart disease in the family. He suggests a daily intake of high quality aloe vera drinking juices for those most at risk.
Whole Leaf Aloe Vera And The Skin - Whole Leaf Aloe Vera, 30 July 2006 [cached]
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 .
Danhof 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.
