Preparations derived from biostimulated leaf juice have particularly valuable properties. To obtain such a juice, the plant is not watered for 2 weeks and this increases the concentration of nutrients in it.
After two weeks, the most fleshy lower leaves are cut off, rinsed with boiled water and placed in a dark and cool place (for example in the lower part of the refrigerator) at a temperature of 4-8 ° C for a few days (usually 10-12).
Under these conditions, they ferment and form special substances - biological stimulants that stimulate the attenuating function of cells and thus prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Aloe leaf juice prepared in this way also contains biostimulants. Fermented leaves or juice have a tonic, refreshing, soothing and softening effect on the skin, accelerate its regeneration and the formation of new cells, are suitable for all skin types, including dilated capillaries.
