SALT INFORMATION

Aloe Vera(0.75%w /w)

TYPICAL USAGE

Treating minor wounds, burns, eczema, and psoriasis. Moisturizing the skin.

SIDE EFFECTS

Topical aloe vera might cause skin irritation. Oral aloe, which has a laxative effect, can cause cramping and diarrhea. This may cause electrolyte imbalances in the blood of people who ingest aloe for more than a few days. Aloe vera can also stain the colon, thus making it difficult to visualize the colon during a colonoscopy.

DRUG INTERACTION

Aloe vera is known to interact with other drugs like digoxin, glimepiride, glyburide, insulin, pioglitazone, rosiglitazone, chlorpropamide, glipizide. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Healing properties: Glucomannan, a mannose-rich polysaccharide, and gibberellin, a growth hormone, interacts with growth factor receptors on the fibroblast, thereby stimulating its activity and proliferation, which in turn significantly increases collagen synthesis after topical and oral Aloe vera. Aloe gel not only increased collagen content of the wound but also changed collagen composition (more type III) and increased the degree of collagen cross linking. Due to this, it accelerated wound contraction and increased the breaking strength of resulting scar tissue.Effects on skin exposure to UV and gamma radiation: The administration of aloe vera gel, an antioxidant protein, metallothionein, is generated in the skin, which scavenges hydroxyl radicals and prevents suppression of superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in the skin. It reduces the production and release of skin keratinocyte-derived immunosuppressive cytokines such as interleukin-10 (IL-10) and hence prevents UV-induced suppression of delayed type hypersensitivity.Anti-inflammatory action: Aloe vera inhibits the cyclooxygenase pathway and reduces prostaglandin E2 production from arachidonic acid. Effects on the immune system: Alprogen inhibit calcium influx into mast cells, thereby inhibiting the antigen-antibody-mediated release of histamine and leukotriene from mast cells.Antiviral and antitumor activity: These actions may be due to indirect or direct effects. Indirect effect is due to stimulation of the immune system and direct effect is due to anthraquinones. The anthraquinone aloin inactivates various enveloped viruses such as herpes simplex, varicella zoster and influenza.Moisturizing and anti-aging effect: Mucopolysaccharides help in binding moisture into the skin. Aloe stimulates fibroblast which produces the collagen and elastin fibers making the skin more elastic and less wrinkled. It also has cohesive effects on the superficial flaking epidermal cells by sticking them together, which softens the skin. The amino acids also soften hardened skin cells and zinc acts as an astringent to tighten pores. It also has anti-acne effect.Antiseptic effect: Aloe vera contains 6 antiseptic agents: Lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamonic acid, phenols and sulfur. They all have inhibitory action on fungi, bacteria and viruses.

Vitamin E(1)

TYPICAL USAGE

In chronic cholestasis (liver and gall bladder diseases), cystic fibrosis, (an inherited disorder affecting the lungs, pancreas and other glands), and abetalipoproteinaemia (inherited disease of fat deficiency affecting growth) where less of Vitamin E is absorbed from the diet, extra vitamin E may be needed. It is used in cosmetic products for the skin and the hair.

SIDE EFFECTS

Diarrhea or stomach upset.

DRUG INTERACTION

Vitamin E may increase the risk of blood clotting in patients taking oral contraceptive pills containing estrogens. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with antioxidant properties. It binds to oxygen free radicals and lipid radicals. These are the substances that can cause tissue and cell membrane damage. Vitamin E thus protects the cell membrane from oxidative damage. 

Jojoba Oil(1)

TYPICAL USAGE

Useful for psoriasis, eczema, serious acne conditions, reduce wrinkles or minimize fine lines.

SIDE EFFECTS

Rash, allergic reactions, jojoba is unsafe for anyone when taken by mouth. It can cause serious side effects such as heart damage.

DRUG INTERACTION

Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Jojoba oil has a positive effect on skin problems such as acne. It interrupts the normal feedback mechanism that controls the skin's sebaceous glands, preventing oversecretion and imparting a soft, velvety feel to the skin. it also reduces the buildup of sebum, acts as a hair thickener, and helps prevent excessive hair fallout. The oil also inhibits tubercle bacilli and may contain an anti-cancer principle.

Glycerin(1)

TYPICAL USAGE

Constipation, dry skin, skin diseases.

SIDE EFFECTS

Flatulence, weakness, dizziness, headache, abdominal cramps, confusion, nausea and vomiting, fall in BP, bloating.

DRUG INTERACTION

Glycerin is known to interact with other drugs like floxacillin (Na), tincture myrrh. These interactions are sometimes beneficial and sometimes may pose threats to life. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Glycerin elevates blood plasma osmolality, resulting in enhanced flow of water from extravascular spaces into plasma. Reduction of intracranial pressure is attributed to the establishment of an osmotic gradient between blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and brain, resulting in withdrawal of fluid from the brain and CSF.
