Aloe vera is a plant type of the Aloe clan growing wild in tropical climes all over the world. It is planted for agricultural, medicinal, and decorative purposes. It successfully grows indoors as a potted plant.
Aloe vera is a stemless or very short-stemmed plant spreading by offsets. The leaves are bulky and fleshy, green to grey-green, with some types exhibiting white freckles on their upper and lower stem surfaces. The margin of the leaf is jaggy and has tiny white gear. The flowers are generated in summer on a spike, each flower being pendulous, with a yellow tubular corolla. It enables the plant better access to mineral nutrients in ground.
It is discovered in some consumer products, such as beverages, skin lotion, or ointments for minor burns and sunburns. There is small scientific proof of the efficacy or safety of Aloe vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal uses. Researches discovering positive proof are often conflicted by other researches.
