Celebrities worship aloe, and you?

The magnificent properties of Aloe Vera for your body, inside and outside, are very well known: moisturizing, regenerating, nourishing, healing, bactericidal, soothing… It is very rare to see a home (worldwide), which does not have a product based on this plant or that has it in its composition.

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

Like the rest of the mortals, celebrities are no strangers to the wonderful benefits of Aloe and use it in its different formats: gel, cream, juice, etc., to improve their physical appearance and even their health. Olivia Palermo, one of the most popular it girl in the world, not only stands out for wearing impeccable outfits in all her appearances; her hair, always perfect, bright and full of life, has a lot to thank the homemade masks that she makes of avocado oil and Aloe Vera.

To keep her face fresh and healthy, singer Nicki Minaj never forgets to take her daily dose of Aloe Vera juice: “It’s not particularly pleasant, but it works!”, she assures. Her colleague, Alicia Keys , incorporates this plant to her diet “because it makes me feel really good”.

But if we have to refer to someone in particular because of her great love for Aloe, that is the actress Drew Barrymore, one of the most recent to express her admiration for the almost miraculous effects of this plant. She did it through her Instagram, where she published several photos to show how Aloe managed to eliminate a bite on her face, just by applying the gel regularly.

As you can see, we’re not the only ones that say it, so do people who need to take great care of their image and who rely on Aloe Vera to achieve a healthy appearance, both inside and outside. Join the Aloe effect.

The best natural barrier against cold

Winter is synonymous of llazy afternoons watching a movie on the sofa, drinking hot chocolate by the chimney, playing with snowballs and having roasted chestnuts. But also of dryness, irritation and dull skin, since the cold disturbs the hydrolipidic film of our skin and the sebaceous glands work slower.

These symptoms are worse in the case of dry or sensitive skin. In addition, the abuse of heating and sudden temperature changes do not help either.

Protect your skin from the cold

And as the cold winter has not come yet,, it’s the perfect time to fine-tune our skin so that we can enjoy all the good things that the cooler season of the year brings us. To do so, you can follow these tips from Juan Chico, pharmacist and founder of Atlantia:

1. Cleanse your face twice a day.  A facial cleansing both in the morning, to remove excess oil accumulated while sleeping, at night time, to reduce the impurities from our skin.

cuidado-de-la-piel-cuerpo2. Moisturize your body.  Hydration is always necessary all the year. However, cold and sudden temperature changes aggravate skin dryness.

Look for creams best suit your skin needs and complement the care with some type of serum or treatment. Pure Aloe gel is a fundamental active ingredient to improve hydration levels.

3. Smoothes premature wrinkles.  Increasing the consumption of vitamin C and antioxidants significantly favours these wrinkles. Atlantia also has key products to help you fight premature wrinkles on your face: REGENERATE, regenerating cream with AHA for women and ACTIVE ENERGY, active anti-aging treatment for men.

cuidado-de-la-piel4. Protect your hands.  The skin of the hands is one of the most affected during this time of year, due to its direct contact with low temperatures, the wind, the cold…

Do not allow your hands to crack from the cold and use daily our Aloe cream for dry and cracked hands.

5. Avoid sudden changes in temperature.  Another of the fundamental factors to obtain a soft and hydrated skin during winter is to avoid, as much as possible, the abrupt changes of exterior and interior temperature. It is also advisable not to abuse of heating at home.

Winter, together with other factors such as stress or pollution, accelerates cell death and the skin needs an extra supply of antioxidants at this time of year. Atlantia offers a very effective and natural solution: HYDRADETOX SPF15.  A day cream with energizing active ingredients and extra nutrition to revitalize, soothe and moisturize the skin.

Its anti-pollution formula based on natural ingredients and 100% free of toxins also helps to reduce and prevent blemishes, as well as regulate sebum production.  A day cream that helps detoxify the skin from the harmful effects of environmental pollution, while protecting against UVB and UVA radiation.

Aloe vera: Don´t get ripped off when buying aloe vera

There are plenty of products in the market boasting their Aloe vera content. But the truth is that among them you can find contents of Aloe vera from 2% to over 90%. Therefore, it is so important to distinguish between gel, juice, concentrate and extract.  

The gel is the blended pulp of the Aloe vera, which contains a high concentration of polysaccharides (acemannan), organic acids, amino acids and vitamins which are really good for you, but also contains aloin, which can have laxative action and it is therefore removed during the process of obtaining Aloe vera juice. Aloe vera juice is the most beneficial way to find Aloe vera in the market, it does not contain aloin, but it still preserves the rest of active ingredients.

Peel Aloe Vera leaves shows transparency gel inside. Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis Mill.,Star cactus, Aloe, Aloin, Jafferabad or Barbados) a very useful herbal medicine for skin care and hair care.

Aloe vera concentrate is the dehydrated Aloe vera gel. The extract is produced from this powder and added water. Products made from concentrate usually contain less than 10% of Aloe vera and they obviously have very little of the original properties of the plant.

The reason for this is that the Aloe vera plant loses its original properties during the lyophilization process (process to obtain the Aloe vera powder).

Most of manufacturers use powder to save in transport and storage costs: it is more expensive to transport aloe vera cubes than dehydrated powder and add water at the end.

How these differences affect your skin

Aloe vera contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, various secondary plant compounds and also mono- and polysaccharides. The Aloverose is the most important component, a well-known sugar, which only happens to exist in the “Aloe barbadensis Miller” species and is very effective to maintain the adequate skin hydration.

piel-perfectaThe difference between a product made from pure aloe vera juice, with high levels of aloeverose, and one made from powder and added water might not be so visible on healthy skin, but on very sensitive, damaged or burned skin, the concentration of main active substances is really important.

Atlantia products are made from high quality pure Aloe vera, produced and manufactured in the Canary Islands, which is a great advantage over other brands based somewhere else. The company guarantees a minimum of 1.700 mg/l. of Aloverose, far above the market average.

The difference between a natural non-processed product and a processed one is basically the loss of original properties. Aloe vera is composed of unstable molecules, which leads to rapid deterioration. Therefore, the earlier it is cold stabilised and packaged, the better to preserve its active principles.

Atlantia, pure and perfect aloe vera juice

crema-hidratante-aloe-veraAtlantia has developed different product lines to improve and maintain your health and beauty, a true body-care. By using 100% pure Aloe vera, Atlantia creams preserve all the valuable active ingredients to show an even brighter and more radiant skin.

Atlantia covers a range of health (to boast your immune system, to decrease the side effects on the skin and mucosa caused by radiotherapy treatments, …), body, facial and personal hygiene products.

VAIRCES

Varicose veins, improves its appearance with aloe vera

Varicose veins are all those veins that, for different reasons, have dilated and part of the blood they lead has been stagnant. This skin condition is usually more visible in the legs, ankles, and feet because those are the farthest parts of the body from the heart.

They have a blue or purple color and are sometimes very annoying to the touch and can even cause some pain, especially after standing for a long time or sitting.

Why do they appear and who suffers from them?

ATLANTIA15Although it is more common among women, many men also suffer from them. They can be of genetic origin, arise during pregnancy, overweight, by impact sports or by the type of work, which forces you to spend a lot of time in the same position (standing or sitting).

Another reason may be sedentary lifestyle or consumption of oral contraceptives that, due to the amount of estrogens, produce a state of hypercoagulation.

For most of those who suffer from varicose veins, apart from an unsightly condition, it is very annoying that it can cause pain and inflammation. Therefore, if no solution is made since they appear, they can become dangerous and end up needing surgical intervention.

Aloe, immediate relief

In addition to improving its appearance, aloe vera calms, reduces fatigue and tension in addition to exerting an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect.

ATLANTIA16Products such as Gel Relax cold-heat with arnica and harpagofito helps to maintain blood circulation in good conditions also thanks to arginine and acemannan of aloe vera in its composition.

In addition, it reduces itching, tingling or the sensation of heat thanks to its soothing and refreshing power.

Varicose veins, avoid them

In a complementary way with the use of aloe vera, to reduce or avoid the appearance of varicose veins, it is necessary to carry out a healthy and balanced diet where vegetables and fruits abound.

It is also a good option to massage the affected areas on a regular basis, exercise and drink a good amount of water a day, as it increases fluidity of blood and eliminate waste.

In this sense, experts also recommend not wearing too tight clothes, in the case of women avoid wearing heels for a long period of time, do not smoke or change their posture regularly and take small breaks to stretch their legs.

In Atlantia we say NO to products tested in animals

More than 100 million animals are treated cruelly each year in laboratories with the objective of testing ingredients whose final product will reach the customer imminently.

Beforehand, since 2009 the sale and manufacture of cosmetic products in the European Union that have been tested on animals is totally prohibited. Four years later, the testing of toxic products was also banned, although there is an extension until the year 2023 for its full and final implementation.

What does it consist of and how does it affect animals?

atlantia2Testing animals involves handling animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, cats and even chickens, in most cases,making them try products and see the reaction they produce in them.

Some of the practices that are carried out are those of observing changes in the skin, the hair or seeing the functioning of the organs through practices that range from inhaling hair lacquers to forcibly introducing dentrifics into the stomach of the animals.

Differentiate whether a product is or is not tested on animals is as simple as checking the label of the product and see if it has the “cruelty free” or “not tested on animals” seal. This means that neither the final product nor any of its ingredients have been tested and we will be looking at a product that is respectful and compassionate to animals.

Yes to cruelty free

atlantia3For all those who want to know what products are those that make tests on animals, there are also mobile applications that indicate whether or not they are cruelty free. Although some of these apps are paid, many others are free: Cruelty free, Bunny free, Choose cruelty or Happy bunny, among others.

Nowadays there are still many brands that test, but every time the trend towards makeup and natural cosmetics increases, which makes us tremendously happy, since from Atlantia we advocate the purity and naturalness of the products, without testing in animals and also without parabens.

Is it testing strictly necessary?

atlantia4Definitely not, since there are many other alternative methods to animal testing. An example of this is to do it through the creation of artificial tissues of cultured human cells and bacterial systems or computer simulations, among many other options.

Nowadays there are companies dedicated to the search for alternatives that do not involve tests on animals, but this requires a particular investment to achieve the objective. On the other hand, it is also necessary that the analyses of these “fictitious” experiments be 100% reliable and demonstrable so that they can be applied to the products without harming the public health.

VIVANESS-2018

Vivaness 2018: International Fair of Natural and Organic Personal Care

¿What it is?

atlantia6Last February VIVANESS 2018 was celebrated, an International Fair of Natural and Organic Personal Care that has already reached  its eleventh edition. Held at the Exhibition Center Nuremberg (Germany), one of the most massive fairgrounds in the world that hosts national and international fairs, exhibitions and congresses.

Also, there is room for debates on the advances in the dermocosmetic industry and presentation of products to professionals of specialized stores, pharmacies, perfumeries…

Atlantia, presented at the fair

FotoJetThis 2018 has been the year chosen by Atlantia to attend Vivaness 2018 for the first time as an exhibitor.

We have been present in the call showing some of our products as Bialoe, a nutritional supplement that fits perfectly in a growing segment such as the nutricosmetics. Bialoe is made from Aloe Vera 100% pure organic farming and is recognized both for its multiple benefits for the body and for being a product for beauty, which works from within to improve the appearance of your skin.

On our stand, we offered visitors a tasting product that was very well received. Many came to try it since the ingested Aloe is still unknown to many. Moreover, for those who knew it and had tried other brands, it was a surprise to see the high acceptance it had.

Aloe vera for everyone

Aloe vera is from the onion family and has a very characteristic smell and flavor, for some it is not very pleasant, although 100% compesated if we think about the multiple benefits it has for our organism. While authentic Aloe Vera juice was 99,7% pure, visitors recognized a smoother flavor thanks to the natural aroma of pineapple.

With our presence at the fair, we also wanted to convey the importance of this product in the medical field. The benefits of Aloe Vera for skin, its regenerative and soothing properties have made the Pure Aloe Vera Gel, and Superdefense recommended for years by medical specialists in breast cancer patients ungergoing radiotherapy. However, recently, an article has been published about a clinical trial carried out with Bialoe that has demonstrated the analgesic and anti-anflammatory action also for ingested Aloe vera.

VIVANESS 2018 has served us as a platform for presentation and introduction to the German market and European countries, which is why we are convinced that it will help us to continue fulfilling our commitment to offer the best Aloe Vera in the Canary Islands.

Contour, the forgotten in facial care

Why should we take care of him?

The contour is considered the most fragile area of the face, as it is at least 10 times thinner than the rest. It is constantly exposed to external agents such as sun, cold or wind and is one of the first areas that ages before, which is more than enough reason to give it special care.
