1. Treats burns
The most popular use of aloe vera has been for treating burns. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, aloe vera contains active compounds that may decrease pain, and provide a cooling, refreshing feeling when applied to the skin – making it ideal for treating sun burns.

The combination of its antibacterial and moisturizing properties make aloe vera a common ingredient in shampoos and conditioners. It is able to control the production of excess sebum (natural oil produced by hair), allowing for your hair to have a clean, smooth appearance.
