La Puerta Core Essentials Ingredient Focus: Aloe - Rancho La Puerta

La Puerta Core Essentials Ingredient Focus: Aloe

Aloe is a superstar; this cactuslike plant is loaded with antioxidants, acts as a natural antibiotic, and is famous for its cooling and soothing properties. While it is known as the ultimate cure for summer skin, it can also be found in supplements, beverages, and herbal remedies.  Aloe is ubiquitous at The Ranch; these beautiful plants thrive in full sun and deep shade. Hummingbirds favor their tubular coral flowers. Naturally we used Aloe as a key ingredient in La Puerta Core Essentials™ bath, body, sun restore, and hair collections. Read on to learn about how Aloe plays a role in some of our best selling products.

Hand and Body Wash

Our Hand and Body Wash features Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Extract because it’s a natural humectant and emollient skin conditioning agent. This foaming hand and body wash has a beautiful rosemary and sage aroma. It has gel-like consistency and contains essential oils and plant extracts to clean and invigorate skin.

Another favorite product in La Puerta Core Essentials Line is Pomegranate Enzyme Mask. This mask not only smells heavenly, but it delicately removes cell build-up with natural fruit enzymes to help reveal newer and smoother skin.

La Puerta Core Essentials Sun Repair

Aloe is a miracle worker for sun-damaged skin – it can be very healing for sun burns, irritation and any inflammatory condition. For these reasons, we made Aloe a core ingredient in our Sun Restore collection. These protective, cooling and soothing products, such as our Aloe Recovery Gel, are discussed in this blog post.
