5 Uses of Aloe Vera Gel: Elemence Vera Gel

Diperbarui: Apr 25

Elemence Vera Gel


I believe aloe vera gel is one of our staple product at home – baik aloe vera gel yang dipanen langsung dari tumbuhan lidah buaya, maupun aloe vera gel ready to use dari berbagai brand baik local maupun impor. I was not a big fan of aloe vera gel. Saya pernah mencoba beberapa merek aloe vera gel yang ada di pasaran. Buat saya, aloe vera gel itu terlalu light untuk kulit saya yang cenderung kering. I also didn’t like the sticky feeling after using it. Jadi, meskipun saya percaya kalau banyak orang keep this multipurpose gel at home, saya tidak tertarik to have one.


But then, I need aloe vera gel to make DIY hand sanitizer without alcohol – how to make it, bisa dicek di sini ya. I was looking at three aloe vera gel brands – I have to say ingredients list is my main concern here. At the end, I chose to use Elemence Vera Gel karena produk ini tidak mengandung ethanol (alcohol) dan perfume. Yes I noted that Elemence is called as vera gel and not aloe vera gel as aloe vera is not its main ingredient. Ingredient di urutan pertama adalah water – so it is water based product, yang diperkaya dengan aloe vera dan berbagai herbal extract lainnya (terutama acai berry extract, centella asiatica extract dan beberapa jenis algae extract to provide powerful anti-aging and anti-stress for our skin).


Here is the full list of Elemence Vera Gel ingredients:


Water, Betaine, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Arabidopsis Thaliana Extract, Micrococcus Lysate, Porphyra Umbilicalis Extract, Pelvetia Canaliculata Extract, Undaria Pinnatifida Extract, Lecithin, Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline, Tall Oil Sterol, Linoleic Acid, Tocopherol, Sodium Ascorbate, Mannitol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Acanthopanax Senticosus (Eleuthero) Root Extract, Schizandra Chinensis Fruit Extract, Ganoderma Lucidum (Mushroom) Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract, Allantoin, Ergothioneine, Hyaluronic Acid, Retinyl Palmitate, Panthenyl Triacetate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Carbomer, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol.


Setelah dibuat bikin hand sanitizer, ternyata Elemence Vera Gel ini masih sisa banyak (isi tube 250ml). Nah, sama seperti any other aloe vera gel, this Elemence Vera gel is also multipurpose skin gel lho. So I explore on maximizing the uses of Elemence Vera Gel yang beyond skin moisturizer. Ternyata, this vera gel can be functioned as follow:


Treat Insect Bites

Digigit nyamuk atau serangga lain? Jangan digaruk, reach and rub this soothing gel to relieve the itch. Aloe vera mengandung anti-inflammatory properties untuk meredakan gata-gatal dan bengkak karena digigit serangga. Rasa adem dari gel ini juga mampu soothes the skin and itch.


Heal Blisters

Kulit lecet bisa diatasi dengan mengoleskan aloe vera gel untuk memgurangi kemerahan dan bengkak. Aloe vera mengandung anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory dan wound healing properties sehingga mempercepat penyembuhan. Saya pernah potong kuku terlalu pendek sampe berdarah. Setelah dibersihkan pakai air, di bagian luka saya oles pakai Elemence Vera Gel. Rasa perihnya berkurang dan 2 jam kemudian, pas mandi, luka sudah recovered.


Treat Acne

Jerawatan? No worries. Aloe vera mengandung anti-bacterial property dan juga salicylic acid yang membantu membersihkan pori-pori kulit yang tersumbat, sekaligus sebagai anti-inflammatory property yang bisa get rid of acne. Elemence Vera Gel ini bisa digunakan sebagai face mask to treat acne – mix 2 parts of honey with 1 part of vera gel and a dash of cinnamon powder. Oleskan pada wajah yang sudah dibersihkan. Leave it for 10 minutes then rinse.


Ease a Burn

Seharian beraktivitas outdoor dan lupa engga pake sunscreen? Got sunburn? Segera oleskan this vera gel karena aloe vera punya soothing property untuk meredakan perih dan moisturizing property nya akan mencegah kulit mengelupas dan mempercepat healing. Aloe vera gel juga terbukti mengatasi luka bakar first or second degree better (baca: cheaper and more effective) than 1% silver sulfadiazine cream. Tangan kena panci panas? Kecipratan air panas? Use this vera gel



Soothe Eczema

If you were like me – having eczema problem, keep Elemence Vera Gel at home. Aloe vera mengandung antioxidant, anti-microbial, wound healing that can improve eczema. Mengoleskan vera gel reduces redness, scaling dan itching – please note: my eczema is moderate. Saya biasa mengoleskan vera gel ketika eczema di telapak tangan kumat. Oles setiap selesai cuci tangan dan diulang beberapa kali dalam sehari, kadang selang seling dengan my DIY balm

Dengan banyaknya manfaat dari aloe vera, no wonder kalo aloe vera dijuluki “a pharmacy in a plant”. Kalo kamu pakai aloe vera gel buat apa aja?
