Aloe vera is the main variety of aloe used worldwide.
Aloe vera L. (lineo) is exactly the same plant than aloe barbadensis miller, but some consumers often confuse the terms.
The aloe vera is the main aloe commercially grown at the five continents. Most aloe products contain aloe vera, mainly because traditionally it has been more studied than other varieties and many researches said it has more properties than the other aloe varieties.
However, when we analyse the aloe constituents we must emphasize that aloe vera is very good for some applications such as pharmaceutical, cosmetic, cosmeceutical and nutraceutical products, while other aloe verieties are good for other applications, i.e. aloe saponaria for certain health foods, and aloe arborescens or aloe ferox for certain juices or lotions.
