Super Aloe LEROSETT® Acne & GUNILLA® Skin Care

Why Hydro-Organic Aloe Makes Better Skincare: The base of most skin care products is water, which does not provide any therapeutic benefit to the skin and only serves as a solvent for the other ingredients. Both LEROSETT® & GUNILLA® products are based on hydroponic aloe that can penetrate multiple layers of skin thanks to its structure made of lignin, a substance similar to cellulose. For aloe vera to be an effective, active skincare ingredient, it must be its primary ingredient to promote skin repair,  hydrate, and even fight bacteria. As hydroponic aloe penetrates the skin, it soothes, heals, nourishes, and reduces inflammation and irritation.

 

 

Temperature Controlled Hand-Planted Greenhouse Grown 100% Organic Aloe Vera. No pesticides, or Herbicides. Plants Grow in a Nutrient Balanced Recycled Water Solution.

Daily Nutrient Control System for Optimum Plant Quality

Gunilla of Sweden® products are better absorbed; help skin heal faster with less skin sensitivity thanks to over 60% hydroponic aloe vera.  

 

GUNILLA® & LEROSETT® products contain over 60% nutrient-infused hydroponically grown organic aloe and are therapeutic by nature. Hydroponically grown aloe vera is rich in antioxidants, combats free radicals, and has potent youth-enhancing anti-inflammatory properties. Our nutrient-infused organic aloe allows active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin while increasing collagen to help heal the skin. Our unique hydroponic aloe is hand planted and grown without pesticides or herbicides.

Aloe can penetrate tissue – Unlike water, aloe can be absorbed by the skin. It is absorbed deep into the skin’s layers due to lignin, a substance similar to cellulose. When used as the main ingredient, this ability allows aloe to act as an excellent carrier for the other components of aloe vera and other botanicals and active ingredients.  The clinically-proven effective ingredients in GUNILLA® products are even more effective within an organic aloe base instead of water.

Aloe has antimicrobial properties – The antimicrobial compounds in aloe include saponin, which has antiseptic properties, and barbaloin, which prevents the growth of Mycobacterium, bacteria famous for causing severe bacterial infections. A 1979 study by Heggers et al. showed that aloe in concentrations greater than 60% is lethal against various organisms. Bacteria is a leading cause of acne. -When aloe is in concentrations greater than 60% is lethal against various organisms.

Aloe is anti-inflammatoryAloe contains natural salicylic acid, an anti-inflammatory beta-hydroxy acid, and a gentle exfoliant. It also includes sterols that inhibit acute inflammation, similar to cortisone but without side effects. Instead of water, GUNILLA®® uses over 60% hydro-organic aloe vera as a base; this aloe alone is clinically shown to reduce swelling and inflammation by an average of 47%. When used in a concentration of over 50%, organic aloe vera is the perfect ingredient for skincare.

Aloe’s ability to heal damaged skin – Scientific research has shown that several components in aloe are responsible for the substance’s excellent ability to regenerate cells. These include gibberellin, a growth hormone-like substance that increases protein synthesis, and lectin, a protein that increases collagen activity and improves the collagen matrix. As a result, LEROSETT® & GUNILLA® products help heal and improve skin health.

 

The Proven Potency & Countless Benefits of GUNILLA® & LEROSETT® Skincare Products Based on Organic Aloe-Vera. Not Water.

Water can penetrate up to two layers of the skin, while hydro-organic aloe vera can make it up to seven layers into the skin, penetrating the skin four times faster than water.

Aloe makes LEROSETT® & GUNILLA® products more beneficial to the skin than water-based skincare. Over thirty years ago, we began using aloe as the medium better to infuse our science-based active ingredients into the skin. We learned that the skin accepted active ingredients better when they were in a base of over 50% organic aloe than in a base of plain water, or especially oils. Water is the most common ingredient in skincare, not because water brings anything to the skin, but because water is the cheapest ingredient. Look at the first ingredient in all of your skincare products, and you will see it’s almost always water/aqua.

We found greenhouse-grown 100% organic aloe and found that we could add more nutrients during the growing cycle through hydroponics. The first ingredient is usually 50% to 90% of the entire content of a skincare product. These aloe plants are hand-planted and hand-picked in large temperature-controlled greenhouses, and we only use the fillet of the aloe leaf. These plants are grown without pesticides or herbicides, and the water is recycled.

 

The hydroponic method of growing plants such as the Aloe used in LEROSETT® and GUNILLA® products uses balanced plant food in a nutrient-rich liquid solution. Not soil with plants growing in temperature and environmentally controlled greenhouse.

Hydroponics takes 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 hosts many nasty little creatures, while hydroponic growing mediums are inert. Plants grow faster with no need for herbicides or pesticides.

This growing method provides more nutrients causing the plants to grow larger and more robust. 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, and 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 the skin from toxins, prevents scarring, and minimizes sebum oil production. Zinc deficiencies have been linked to acne. Many other minerals that reside in Aloe function as antioxidants.

Why use Hydroponics?
  1. Hydroponic plants are grown in water, not soil. Soil loses its nutrient value over time and can contain plant-damaging disease. 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.
  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. All GUNILLA™ products are based on a minimum of 60% of our hydroponically greenhouse-grown, handpicked, hand planted, nutrient-fed 100% organic aloe. More nutrients are infused into the plant yielding a more active ingredient, primarily when used as the main ingredient in skincare. You will notice a quality feel that products using water as the main cannot have. That’s another reason Gunilla of Sweden® is in a class all its own.
