Is Aloe Vera Powder Beneficial?

Aloe vera is well-known around the world for treating cuts, burns, and scrapes, but more recently has been gaining recognition for other positive effects on the body. It has been a popular medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years, used for preventing and repairing digestive disorders, healing pain, and promoting a strong immune system. Aloe vera is an extremely versatile plant and comes in two different forms that may benefit in different ways, gel and powder.

Maybe you have used aloe vera gel before, but what about powder? Let’s dive into what you can use aloe vera powder for and what its benefits are.

Benefits Of Aloe Vera Powder

Aloe vera powder is made from dried aloe vera leaves, ground down into a powder consistency. It can be used in many different ways in different products, or on its own, and offers multiple benefits for the body, inside and out.


  • High in antioxidants and vitamin C
  • Easily absorbed in the bloodstream
  • Heals skin
  • Improves skin’s elasticity
  • Boosts the body’s immune system
  • Repairs and soothes the digestive tract

Common Uses of Aloe Vera Powder

Using aloe powder instead can allow you to really get the most out of its benefits. Aloe gel contains almost 96% of liquid and water, so once dried and ground into powder, you’re left with the ability to amplify other products with it. There are a few common ways that aloe vera powder is used the most: in food, as a dietary supplement, in skincare products and cosmetics, and in haircare.

Food and Dietary Supplements

Aloe vera powders can be reconstituted and made into a single strength juice. Once aloe vera powder is mixed with water, you can add preservatives for a better shelf-life, pH adjusters, flavors, and/or sweeteners. You can also use the powder directly rather than reconstituting it with water, by encapsulating it and using it as a dietary supplement. In addition to making capsules, aloe vera powder can be used as a major or minor ingredient in powdered product mixes that have been created for nutraceutical or functional use. Some like to use aloe vera in juices, smoothies, or on top of their yogurt or acai bowls.

  • Aloe vera has been considered a natural laxative that may aid in digestion and helps ease constipation
  • Water-dense structure can help in hydration
  • May reduce blood sugar levels

Skin Care

Reconstituted aloe vera juice is much more powerful after being derived from the powdered form and used as an ingredient in cosmetic formulas. Most cosmetic companies have water as a mixing base for their produce, so this concentrated aloe vera juice can be used similarly. Whether it is used as a base ingredient, or a complimentary ingredient to an already existing formula, you can enhance your products with the benefits of aloe.

  • Aloe vera powder has moisturizing and soothing properties that may help heal scars and marks, and soothe sunburns and mild burns, eczema, psoriasis, and acne with its anti-inflammatory properties
  • Can boost collagen production in the skin
  • Acts as an antiseptic that can help reduce any pain, swelling, or itching for things like mosquito bites, sunburns, or allergic reactions 

Hair Care

Aloe vera powder may be helpful in improving hair growth and reducing dandruff with its moisturizing and anti-inflammatory benefits. Some people suffer from irritating dryness and itching on their scalp, which are all normal from time to time, but others have to deal with more chronic conditions that may require special treatment. Aloe vera can soothe these scalp irritations, combat redness, and disinfect and heal any lesions from itching and scratching too harshly. A lot of companies have begun to add aloe vera to their formulas because it contains vitamin B12 and folic acid to help combat hair loss and promote a healthy scalp.
