Aloe protects from antibiotics´ secondary effects

After the accidental discovery of penicillin by Fleming, antibiotics have saved many lives. Its administration is essential to stop certain diseases caused by bacteria. It is the case of serious illnesses such as pneumonia and to halt the risk of infections that may occur in some people (for example, those who are going to have surgery).

The problem is that the antibiotic does not distinguish between bad and good bacteria. That is why, once in the organism, the bacteria of the digestive system that we know as intestinal flora are carried ahead. This microbiota is important for us because, in addition to helping in the process of digestion, they are also necessary to produce group B vitamins (folic acid, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, among others).

During the treatment with antibiotic the intestinal flora is damaged, and this continues for a long time after stopping taking them. That is why there may be side effects such as constipation, diarrhea, bloating or gas after taking this medication.

Pure aloe vera juice

EVENTO ATLANTIA_Catering_064The pure Aloe Vera juice is a natural remedy to protect the bacterial flora during the treatment with antibiotics, thanks to its protective effect of the gastric mucosa. Its intake also reduces stomach acidity, promotes proper digestion, strengthens the immune system and self-defense mechanisms.

The BIALOE juice from Atlantia is formulated with 100% pure Aloe Vera (no water), extracted from the leaves of the organic cultivation plant (three whole leaves are used per bottle).

It has a sweet pineapple flavor and only contains natural ingredients, no preservatives or parabens. It is enough to take 20 ml. before breakfast, with a glass of water or juice.

Can you recognize a quality aloe vera?

On the basis that it does not exist any product that contains 100% aloe vera as a unique ingredient of its composition, problems related to the manufacturing process, commercialization and quality of this plant has risen up over the years.

Aloe vera has been used since Ancient Egypt, but now we have discovered the benefits that this plant provides to our organism and the capacity to palliate lots of its illnesses.

Cultivation of aloe vera in Canary Islands

Fresh leaves of aloe vera. isolated on white background

If we want the product to maintain all its properties, convenient atmospheric conditions must happen during the cultivation of the plant, such as a hot and windy environment, water, pH, and watering frequency.

All of our products are fabricated from the ecological cultivation of the plant, denomination attributed by the C.R.A.E ( Regulatory Board of Ecologial Agriculture).

As a result, we obtain organic aloe vera, non-transgenic and without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or fungicides.

Products made 100% of aloe vera?

Completely wrong. Before putting in our basket a product that indicates a 100% aloe vera composition we should stop to read its label. We must look, in all products, for the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients), since it will be organized depending on the percentage they have on its composition.

18010707_1286232701431525_1855574181895730849_n

It is not impossible to have a product made 100% of aloe vera, but it is impossible to send it to the consumer with the same freshness as the leafs that have been recently cut. Products need to have a small percentage of preservatives to avoid its breakdown and to be able to get to the customer´s home with the best quality possible.

Another consideration would be that containers must always be hermetically closed, avoiding the solar light and wind to enter, and as a consequence, keeping all their properties.

Ethics, professionalism and quality

Slice Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis Mill.Star cactus Aloe Aloin Jafferabad or Barbados) a very useful herbal medicine for skin care and hair care.

In Atlantia we inform ethically and professionally about the real process of canary aloe vera and its quality.

Consequently, we support organisms as AFAVECAN (Association of manufacturers of aloe vera of Canary Islands), created in 2016 and with the aim of driving the commercialization of aloe vera local products outside of the Canary Islands.

This appears due to the fraud that has been generated around products manufactured with powdered extract that simulate being pures and originated in Canary Islands, even announcing it in the packaging.

So, ¿what is the objective of this organism? Boosting canary industry and report the production of aloe vera that does not meet the requirements of quality of the plant.

Skin Care Tips at Christmas

cuidado-pielA considerable increase of large meals, fun toasts, controversy in following the trends, and alleviate the seasonal cold…

We all know that Christmas is a time where healthy and balanced diet disappears, alcohol consumption is accentuated, and low temperatures come from the winter. A set of factors that directly affect our skin’s condition.

That’s why in Atlantia, and with the help of our products made with pure Aloe Vera from the Canary Islands, we provide you with some tips to take care of your skin during Christmas despite everything we have said before.

Cleanse Your Skin Daily

During Christmas, we include more fat in our diet. Therefore, cleaning our skin is essential to eliminate the impurities that are generated during these days. Wash your face twice a day and remove your makeup properly. Our FACIAL CLEANSING MOUSSE, enriched with Aloe Vera, ensures a smooth and efficient cleansing. Also, it does not contain soap or dry the epidermis.

Use Sunscreen

During the winter, our skin receives constant UV rays. Many people make the mistake of thinking that we must protect ourselves from the sun only in the summer. Avoid premature aging using a daily protective cream. Our famous HYDRAPLUS FP 15 protects your skin from sun damage with a single UVA/UVB screen.

Moisturise Your Face

Changes in temperature, stuffy environments, alcohol consumption cause significant dehydration in our skin. Drinking lots of water will be vital to regain a smooth and healthy complexion, as well as daily use of a facial moisturizer.

Get a Peeling

Peelings performed by dermatologists are totally useful during this season; the sun won’t cause any damage while our skin regenerates. After getting a peeling, you will be able to clean up your face of impurities for the coming year, beyond what you can do at home.

Also at Atlantia, we have one of our most useful products: REGENERAGE, a regenerating cream with AHA. It is a cream that fights multiple external agents (pollution, stress, sun…) that accelerate the skin aging. REGENERAGE helps improve wrinkles and expression marks.

The soothing power of Aloe Vera after shaving

cuidados-del-afeitado-diarioHipster, stubble, goatee, and in all versions! Beards have caused a real boom in male trends in recent years. A hairy boom that has awakened even the sympathy of women.

Nevertheless, the dedication to keep a beard in its ideal form supposes a constant shaving that causes various sequels in the skin near the hair.

Shaving is the beauty routine par excellence of men’s skin. It is an epidermis that clearly distinguishes itself from women’s skin due to its superior thickness (24%), a considerable segregation of the hydrolipofic, lasting film, as well as a greater degree of elasticity and firmness.

Frequent shaving involves constant stress that damages the outer layer of the skin. This causes its vulnerability against external agents, like cold, sun, or air. Therefore, men need facial care that helps them to regenerate and heal the skin, whether before or after shaving.

Before the Blade

The most faithful and careful men know the importance of a proper preparation of the beard before shaving. Warm water helps to soften the area’s hair, opening the pores. Especially when it comes to those of the famous subculture of young (and not so young) bohemians: the hipsters

In this sense, the essential eucalyptus or menthol oils and the exfoliation could be an alternative to grooming the most unmanageable beards, goatee, and mustaches.

Male Skin Recovery

aftershave-con-aloe-veraWe have reached the tipping point of men’s beauty routine. That is that the recovery of the skin after shaving should be more precise than the preparation of it. The aftershaves with alcohol, or any other product with a high content of perfume, could be harmful to the skin, causing any unwanted reaction.

Aloe Vera becomes the best ally for the recovery of male skin after shaving. Thanks to the combination of a set of natural properties, the gel of the plant becomes a powerful moisturizer, regenerating and soothing the epidermis.

At Atlantia, we have the Ultra Comfort gel of the Line Man made with the purest Aloe Vera, which soothes and calms the skin after shaving. It is a gel with a soft and refreshing texture, of easy absorption, and paraben-free that leave the skin hydrated and relaxed.

Tips to Have a Radiant Skin in Winter with Aloe

The chlorine in the pools or the intense hours under the sun is no longer a problem to maintain a healthy and radiant skin with Aloe Vera… Now there are other problems!

Winter season also coincides with some of the most important celebrations of the year: Christmas and all your dinners with family, friends, companions… That is why paying attention to our beauty habits and daily care is of vital importance.

Daily Skin Care

From Atlantia, we want to provide you with some simple tips to always maintain a radiant skin using Aloe Vera and combating the extreme winter weather:

  • Aloe vera for cold1. Clean your face twice a day. A facial cleaning both in the morning, to remove excess fat accumulated while sleeping; and at night, to reduce the segregated impurities on the face during the day.
  • 2. Moisturise your skin. Hydration is always necessary. However, the cold and sudden changes in temperature aggravate the dryness of the skin. The Aloe Vera pure gel is an underlying asset to improve the levels of moisturising in your skin.
  • 3. Soften premature wrinkles. Increasing the consumption of vitamin C and antioxidants favours these wrinkles significantly. Also, Atlantia also has key products to help you fight premature wrinkles on the face: REGENERATE, regenerating cream with AHA for women, and ACTIVE ENERGY, active anti-aging treatment for men.
  • 4. Protect your hands. The skin of the hands is the part of your body that most suffers during this time of year due to its direct contact with low temperatures, the wind… Do not allow your hands to crack in the cold. Use our hand Aloe cream for dry and chapped hands.
  • 5. Avoid sudden changes in temperature. Another key factor in achieving a smooth, moisturised skin during winter is to prevent, as much as possible, sudden changes in outdoor and indoor temperatures. It is also advisable not to abuse heating at home.

We use airless containers to maintain our Aloe Vera

cremas-hombre-aloeAt Atlantia, we strive to maintain the highest quality standards in each and every one of our products. Within our manufacturing process, we are at the forefront of innovative technology. Such is the case that we use the so-called airless container in some of our products.

We refer to a type of container that works through a continuous vacuum system. The airless container is used to maintain current all the properties and principles of the content: eco cultivated Aloe vera, in our case.

Is “the ecological” in fashion?

It seems that in our today’s society, all issue that is cataloged as “eco”, is fashionable. A tendency that probably comes from (finally) the awareness of the people regarding the reality of climate change, the improvement of the alimentary habits and, even, the new natural beauty rituals (yes, we look after ourselves).

aloe-vera-ecologicoThis new vision of the environment is necessary and healthy. As maintaining a plenty and healthy life is the most demanded purpose each December 31th in the 21th century. Supermarkets, grocery stores or markets area already reserving spaces for the items labeled as “ecologic”.

This new vision of the environment is necessary and healthy. However, for a product to be considered ecologic must be produced in compliance with a series of techniques that exclude the chemical synthetized products employment (as pesticides or fertilizers); preserving the environment and maintaining the natural properties of the gender.

We love “eco fashion”!

The boom of the “eco products” is a reality. In Spain the greatest part of the national ecological surface corresponds to the olive oil, cereals and legumes, followed by some dry fruits and grapevine.

Also, it is essential to make some room for the ecologic cultivation of Aloe Vera in that list. Especially in the Canary Islands, which gather the unique conditions needed for an authentic quality plant. That’s why the Archipelago has turned into the main European region for the Aloe vera cultivation and production.

We sell eco cultivated Aloe vera

At Atlantia we fervently bet on the ecologic agriculture as an asset for the ground fertility and the subsequent nutritive improvement, both of our organisms and the skin. So we elaborate all our products using as raw material the Aloe vera that comes from the ecologic cultivation from the Canary Islands.

Atlantia, eco cultivated Aloe vera from the Canary Islands Click To Tweet

aloe-vera-atlantiaThis way, in the manufacturing of our products we use pure Aloe vera juice, directly extracted of the leaves of the plant (not the ones that comes from concentrated products). This ensures that the properties of the plant are not altered in the manufacturing process, giving a final product that is competitive and ideal for our care in the inside and the outside.

Get into the “ecologic” fashion and buy Aloe vera products produced through the real ecologic cultivation. In our Research and Development Department in Atlantia we continuously work to improve and create new products, offering that way the most natural and professional to all our customers.

Aloe-vera-cocina

Aloe vera works its way into the kitchen!

So far we have learned many of the benefits of applying the Aloe vera plant to the skin: as a soother for burns, due to its strong moisturising power, and an optimum wound healer…But what do we know about the advantages of ingesting Aloe vera?

There are many experts who have backed the study (still in preliminary stages) of this plant, also known as sabila, in colon cancer prevention. The possible effects of Aloe on obesity and diabetes have even been considered. Speculations that, today, we can’t say with certainty. But we do hope to be able to do so in the near future.

Nutritional properties of Aloe vera

Recetas-con-Aloe-veraJuices, yoghurts, jams…The major food brands are aware of the potential of Aloe vera and are starting to include it in their products. And when the pure gel of this plant is mixed with other foods, it becomes an insipid ingredient, tasteless.

However, Aloe vera preserves all its nutritional and beneficial properties for our body in these foods. Such as its high content of minerals: potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. It also contains vitamin E, B vitamins, vitamin C and folic acid.

We must also highlight the content of aloin (anthraquinone) in this plant, a type of substance found in plants with yellow-orange pigments and that stimulates bowel movement, preventing and reducing constipation for those who sufferer from it.

Although aloin has been used for the treatment of oral infections, as a natural laxative or to alleviate gastritis, it could be a toxic substance if consumed over the recommended amount (10 ppm: parts per million). So the amount consumed should be in moderation. It may even cause an allergic reaction in certain types of people.

Juice extracted from Aloe vera

At Atlantia we’re not going to offer any less, so (currently) we have BIALOE, a juice made with the purest Aloe vera of the Canary Islands. This drinkable product is a fairly complete and natural nutritional supplement with positive effects for the proper functioning of our body.

Below, you can see the method of use we recommend at Atlantia:

How to include Aloe vera in my recipes

Our country’s great chefs have dared to add Aloe vera to their recipes. Why are we going to be an exception? Try the Aloe vera jelly in juices, smoothies, creams and soups. Even buying it in small cubes you can make a lush (and very healthy) salad.

We always recommend that you remove with caution the Aloe vera gel intended for preparing food, as by doing this you’ll avoid the yellow part of the Aloe vera, which is quite bitter, sour and acts as a laxative.

Fraude-productos-Aloe-vera

Canarian manufacturers fighting Aloe vera fraud

Aloe-vera-canariasAs we mentioned a few months ago in our article, “Asian Aloe vera products camouflage themselves as Canarian”, the situation remains the same: products labeled with Canarian branding turn out to be completely bogus products.

Aloe vera from the Canary Islands has a number of unique conditions (warm, arid and breezy environment) which make the plant’s crops one of the best in the world.

On most of the southern islands you can enjoy plenty of hours of sunshine throughout the year, stable temperatures, very few rainfalls and constant trade winds. Some advantages cosmetic items from China, Pakistan and India take advantage of, camouflaging themselves on the market with “Canary Island branding”. In fact, the products masquerading as Canarian Aloe vera amount up to 21 million euros thanks to deception.

Aloe vera deceptive products earn up to 21 million euros Click To Tweet

These fraudulent products boast 100% Aloe vera from the Canary Islands, whose labeling show a clear discrepancy: there is no trace of information about the manufacturer. Even when using the product, from the outset it feels like a standard cream.

Association of Manufacturers of Canarian Aloe vera Products

Aloe-vera-puro-de-CanariasThat’s why, after several years of fighting against this situation, Canarian manufacturers have reunited for the purpose of establishing the Association of Manufacturers of Canarian Aloe vera Products (AFAVECAN)

A low cost initiative to crack down on the counterfeiting of conventional products, especially intended for the millions of tourists who visit the Archipelago each year. The aim of the association is to make Aloe vera a product unique to the Islands.

The Minister of Industry of the Canary Islands Government, Pedro Ortega, has asked for collaboration from the tourism sector, with the aim of promoting the authentic Aloe vera from the Canary Islands. Ortega believes that this product is “a way of helping to diversify and increase industrial development and to generate skilled employment on the Islands”, which between direct and indirect jobs, employs about 600 workers on the Canary Islands.

He further concluded that “the processing and manufacture of products with this plant offer a wide range of possibilities for the Canarian industries of high value-added that also generate specialist jobs and R+D”.

Aloe Vera shampoo for summer hair care

Hair responds to our mood, health and how we treat it. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps keep our hair soft and shiny.

That’s why throughout the year we look after our hair with great care: masks, oils, hydrating treatments at trusted hair salons… However, none of this is effective enough if when summer arrives we ignore the SOS our hair cries out.

A lack of care can reflect a rougher, dull and discoloured hair Click To Tweet

After marathon tanning sessions, diving in pools with high levels of chlorine or aggressive hairdrying, our lush and voluminous hair ends up becoming matted and mop-like with little life.

Summer hair care

Pelo-dañadoDuring the summer season we diligently entrust ourselves to care for our skin from the harmful rays of the sun, leaving the protection of our hair in the background. A neglection of the hair reflected in rougher, dull and discoloured hair.

It’s important to know how to care for our hair in summer, not only because of increased exposure to sunlight, but also due to sea water or chlorinated pools. Also, if we use dyes, protection must be more thorough.

Avoiding the hairdryer and letting our hair dry outdoors is one of the most effective methods for maintaining shine and a silky feel. Likewise, using a specific product for those beach days helps keep both the hair and scalp healthy.

Shampoo with Aloe vera

champú-aloe-veraRecovering the shine and volume of our hair isn’t a ‘quick fix’ job; it needs time to restructure and repair. That’s why at Atlantia we have a shampoo enriched with Aloe vera for normal hair care throughout the year.

Its very soft cleansing base, also rich in natural surfactants, allows our hair to retain its shine and balance. Furthermore, it respects the pH of the skin and scalp.
