Aloe Vera

The special plant - Ingredient of Ritex GEL

What exactly makes aloe vera so special? The aloe vera plant, which is also referred to as the lily of the desert, has been highly prized for centuries by many different cultures and civilisations.

It’s no wonder; there must be something special about a plant which grows and thrives in such inhospitable conditions.

History of Aloe Vera

To date, the plant has been scientifically proven to contain more than 160 active ingredients. But even as early as the age of the Pharaohs, the Egyptian Queens Nefertiti and Cleopatra recognised the value of the moisturising extract of aloe vera for skincare.

Only in more recent times has the beneficial effect of this desert plant been rediscovered. However, as an ingredient in a wide range of products, especially in the care and cosmetics industry, aloe vera can no longer be ignored today.
