Ingredients Explained: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice

Aloe veraAloe Barbadensis leaf juice is used in the Pinnaclife animal health products for its soothing, anti-inflammatory effects as well as its wound healing abilities.

 


Say Ahhhh with Aloe

Aloe barbadensis is a type of succulent plant, commonly referred to as “aloe vera”, that is popular for the juice it stores in its leaves. Aloe leaf juice is commonly used in many medicinal products, cosmetics, and dietary supplements. Scientific studies suggest that aloe vera enhances wound healing and has anti-inflammatory properties. For example, many sunburn relief gels include aloe for its ability to soothe inflamed skin. It has also been found to improve the healing of burns and be a skin moisturizer. Reports have also suggested that is is effective against certain skin diseases and infection.

Aloe Toxicity?

The aloe is common household plant, and can be toxic if ingested by
animals. As shown in the picture, the leaf contains a gel AloeLeafSectionMacro1slike substance on the inner portion (non-toxic) and a sap like substance around the edge called latex (toxic). When ingested, the latex can cause stomach upset such as vomiting and diarrhea. The inner gel, which is non-toxic, is the substance that is extracted as a juice for use in common products.

The aloe barbadensis juice found in the Pinnaclife products has undergone a strict process to ensure separation from the latex. It will provide soothing and comfort to your pet’s skin without the risk of them getting sick.

Product Spotlight: Zinc Oxide Paste

Zinc Oxide Paste is a skin protectant cream for horses Zinc Oxidethat uses micronized zinc oxide and white petrolatum. It forms a semi-occulsive barrier to protect skin against moisture and bacterial contamination.

Micronized zinc oxide is zinc oxide that has been treated to reduce the average size of its particles, producing an ultra-fine powder.Regular zinc oxide can leave a white film on the skin when applied. Products containing micronized zinc oxide do not leave this film, offering a form of invisible zinc oxide protection, because the particles are too small to see with the naked eye.
