Why: For years, I associated aloe with two things: goopy after-burn gel and the thing lotions slapped on the label to make them appear ‘natural’. Although my fears were well founded (how many after-burn gels and lotions do you have that boast aloe as an ingredient?), it turns out that aloe can be used in a lot of things.
With calming powers have been used topically for thousands of years, its no wonder the beauty experts continue to use derivatives of the plant in skin care products. With its natural soothing power, the Body Shop chose it as a main ingredient in its calming toner — dermatologically approved to be gentle on sensitive skin.
Although it works to remove impurities, this toner is not as harsh as alcohol-based ones. It’s perfect for stressed or sunburned skin, or those who only need light cleansing to keep up their perfect skin.
