At Gunilla of Sweden®, the base of all of our products, aside from our LEROSETT® Clay treatment, is our hydroponic aloe.
The hydroponic method of growing plants, such as aloe, uses balanced plant food in a nutrient rich liquid solution – not soil – with plants growing in a temperature and environmentally controlled greenhouse. Hydroponics take the desired amount of food directly to the root rather than making plant’s roots look for it in soil. The pH and nutritional value of the water is easily measured and maintained so plants always have enough food. Soil plays host to many nasty little creatures, while hydroponic growing mediums are inert. Plants grow faster with no need for herbicides or pesticides. The hydroponic method provides more nutrients causing the plants to grow larger and stronger .
100% Hydro-Organic Aloe has vitamins and minerals that help the symptoms of acne and problem skin. Vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, E, along with many more, are contained within Aloe. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens your immune system and protects your skin from damage while Vitamin E repairs damaged tissues, decreases inflammation, accelerates the healing process, improves blood circulation, and minimizes scar tissue.
Aloe also has multiple minerals that help the symptoms of acne and problem skin. One of these minerals is Zinc, an essential trace mineral that repairs damaged skin, accelerates healing, protects skin from toxins, prevents scarring and minimizes sebum oil production. Zinc deficiencies have been linked to acne. There are many other minerals that reside in aloe that function as antioxidants.
