 Bright Lab Sydney Aloe Vera Extract

Aloe Vera

What are its benefits?

Aloe vera has a lot of benefits because it contains good enzymes, antioxidants, folic acid, vitamins A and C, proteins, triglycerides, good fatty acids, and amino acids. Aloe vera used regularly benefits skin by encouraging new skin cell growth and balancing the skins PH. This helps skin look younger and smoother.

Using natural hand wash and hand sanitizing products with gentle natural ingredients helps sanitize the hands and avoid dry skin.

The use of Aloe Vera in skincare dates back thousands of years for it's long list of benefits, containing antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, folic acid, enzymes, proteins, amino acids, good fatty acids and triglycerides.

Aloe Vera  provides a calming effect on the skin and has been shown to help reduce itchiness and inflammation. Used regularly, it improves the appearance of aged or damaged skin by promoting new skin-cell growth. As a natural pH balancer, it gives the skin a smoother appearance and removes dead skin to unclog pores.

Where does it come from?

The Aloe Vera plant you're likely to recognise is the Aloe Barbadensis Miller, which has thick cactus-like leaves. This species of succulent has a firm outer leaf, and aloe latex within the inner leaf. It originates from the Arabian Peninsula, but grows wild in tropical, semi-tropical, and arid climates around the world. 

Bright Lab Sydney Ethanol

Ethanol 70%

What are its benefits?

Ethanol, also called alcohol, ethyl alcohol and grain alcohol, is a clear, colourless liquid and the principle ingredient in alcoholic beverages as well as a common ingredient in antibacterial hand sanitiser gels as an antiseptic for its bactericidal and anti-fungal effects.

Ethanol kills organisms by denaturing their proteins and dissolving their lipids and is effective against most bacteria and fungi, and many viruses.

The boiling point of true ethanol is 78 °C and the flashpoint is 11 °C. Ethanol at a concentration of 99% is more suited to cleaning type applications when a quick evaporation rate is required. Whereas ethanol 70% is the most effective concentration that can be used on the skin to disinfect and kill bacteria. The difference is the moisture content and the strength of the alcohol. The higher the strength the more it will flash off. Our formulation uses ethanol concentrated at 70% for its ability to effectively disinfect skin as it has longer surface time before drying off therefore, more time to kill the germs.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the use of hand sanitisers in situations where soap and water are not available.

Where does it come from?

Ethanol is a natural byproduct of plant fermentation of sugars, yeasts or via petrochemical processes. The fermentation of sugar into ethanol is one of the earliest biotechnologies employed by humans with dried residue found on 9,000-year-old pottery in China.
