Plaine Products is proud of our vegan products and their natural ingredients. We are completely transparent about all of the environmentally friendly ingredients that go into each and every bottle. We’ve also talked about what you don’t want in your shampoo or conditioner, or even hand wash; the potentially toxic and harmful ingredients you won’t find in any of our products.
But did you know? The main ingredient in almost all of our products is aloe.
More About Aloe
Aloe Vera Extract, also known as Medicinal Aloe, is our main ingredient, as opposed to water in most personal care products. The aloe vera plant, Latin name: Aloe barbadensis, has been used medicinally since as early as 1500 BC. Even Cleopatra used aloe vera as part of her beauty routine. Aloe vera is known for its antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties. Its key benefits include antioxidants like beta carotene and Vitamins C and E all of which can aid in reducing the appearance of damaged skin through their nourishing and skin-brightening properties. Aloe contains 75 beneficial nutrients, including 8-essential amino acids as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C and E. Long noted for its healing properties, aloe vera is used in the treatment of wounds, burns and minor skin infections. It is one of the reasons our products are so amazing.
For Your Hair
Aloe vera has many benefits when it comes to your hair. With aloe instead of water as our main ingredient, Plaine Products Shampoos restores essential nutrients to enhance scalp health and hair texture. The anti-inflammatory properties of aloe can help to relieve itchy scalp and may even help the scalp inflammation that dandruff can cause. Aloe has a similar pH level to your hair’s natural pH level and as a result, can help to reduce frizz and dry scalp. Your hair loves aloe’s high water content which can help to moisturize both the scalp and hair. Aloe vera can attract and lock in moisture helping your hair to be shinier, smoother, and more healthy-looking. The numerous vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that aloe contains promote hair growth, prevent and soothe itchiness, reduce dandruff, calm inflammation, and condition hair.
For Your Skin
Aloe vera also has great benefits for your skin. It helps soothe, soften and hydrate the skin. It moisturizes dry skin due to its high number of mucopolysaccharides. Mucopolysaccharides help in binding moisture into the skin and are a common ingredient in many moisturizers. Aloe also has collagen-producing effects that can help make the skin more elastic and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating fibroblast which produces collagen and elastin fibers, aloe reduces inflammation, puffiness, and dark circles and can help fade dark spots and acne scars. Aloe also contains salicylic acid which works as a light and natural exfoliant. All of these great benefits can be received through our skin care and face care products.
Aloe really is one of the main reasons our products are so amazing! So good and magical it makes us want to bathe in the stuff. Oh wait, we do!
