Special Organic Aloe in LEROSETT® Acne & GUNILLA® Skincare

The Structure of Lignin that Allows Aloe to Penetrate the Dermis of the Skin. When Water Can only Lay on the Surface and Dry out the Skin, Gunilla of Sweden® Skincare Can Penetrate Deeper Into the Skin.

 

 

Temperature Controlled Greenhouse Grown 100% Organic Aloe Vera

Daily Nutrient Control System for Optimum Plant Quality

Gunilla of Sweden® Difference, Over 60% Hydroponic Aloe in LEROSETT® and GUNILLA® Skin Care: Our nutrient-infused aloe contains Lignin that allows it to penetrate the skin, and aloe increases collagen to help heal the skin. Aloe is one of the only known substances that can penetrate the dermis layer of the skin. Water or oil-based skincare will only lay on the surface of the skin.

Over thirty years ago, we began using aloe as the medium to infuse our science-based active ingredients into the skin better. We learned that skin accepted active ingredients better when they were in a base of over 50% organic aloe than in a base of plain water. Water is the most common ingredient in skincare, not because water brings anything to the skin, but because water is the most inexpensive ingredient. Look at the first ingredient in all of your skincare products. You will see it’s almost always water. The first ingredient is usually well over 50% of the content of any skincare product. We later came upon greenhouse-grown 100% organic aloe. More nutrients could be infused during the growing cycle. These plants are grown without the need for pesticides, herbicides, and the water is recycled. These aloe plants are hand-planted and hand-picked in large temperature-controlled greenhouses.

The hydroponic method of growing plants such as aloe uses balanced plant food in a nutrient-rich liquid solution. Not soil with plants growing in temperature and environmentally controlled greenhouse. Hydroponics take the desired amount of food directly to the root rather than making the plant’s roots look for it in the soil. The pH and nutritional value of the water are easily measured and maintained, so plants always have enough food. Soil plays host to many nasty little creatures, while hydroponic growing mediums are inert. Plants grow faster with no need for herbicides or pesticides. The hydroponic method provides more nutrients causing the plants to grow larger and stronger. 100% Hydro-Organic Aloe has vitamins and minerals that help the symptoms of acne and problem skin. Vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, E, along with many more, are contained within Aloe. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that strengthens your immune system and protects your skin from damage. While Vitamin E repairs damaged tissues, decreases inflammation, accelerates the healing process, improves blood circulation, and minimizes scar tissue. Aloe also has multiple minerals that help the symptoms of acne and problem skin. One of these minerals is Zinc. Zinc is an essential trace mineral that repairs damaged skin, accelerates healing, protects skin from toxins, prevents scarring, and minimizes sebum oil production. Zinc deficiencies have been linked to acne. Many other minerals that reside in aloe that function as antioxidants.

Why use Hydroponics?
  1. Soil loses its nutrient value over time and can contain plant-damaging disease. Hydroponic plants are grown in water, not soil. The hydroponic method uses balanced plant food that dissolved directly into the oxygenated water. That way, the plant can receive perfect nutrition at all times.

  2. Re-filter the same water, it is not wasted in the soil, and the roots are always in water-absorbing more plant food and nutrients.
  3. More harvests in a greenhouse; the plants are more abundant and healthier too.
  4. No herbicides or pesticides, and there is no damaging water runoff.
  5. Soil is not able to produce the nutrient levels needed per sq. Foot, as the root system can take up in hydroponics.
  6. More nutrients are infused into the plant yielding a more effective ingredient, primarily when used as the main ingredient in skincare. All GUNILLA™ products are based on a minimum of 60% of our hydroponically greenhouse-grown, handpicked and hand planted, nutrient fed 100% organic aloe. You will notice a quality in feel that products using water as the main cannot have. That’s another reason Gunilla of Sweden® is in a class all its own.
