Aloe Arborescens vs Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera)
Scientifically, 'Aloe Vera'  doesn't exist. So we decided to correct this expression although knowing that we are combating the millionaire marketing about this variety of Aloes plants. 
Let us explain: 'vera' means 'true' and this has been the name given to the variety Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), for the wrong / misleading reasons described below.

The Aloe Barbadensis - a large leaf and yellow flower, the most commonly sold around the world - embodied in its products by large multinational companies, with millionaire marketing, who earn millions much because people believe they are buying the product recommended by Friar Romano Zago: Aloe Arborescens. That is, took the "wave" and surf on the success of this great investigator, selling "pig in a poke."

Aloe Arborescens, with red flower, has leaves about half the size of Barbadensis, but a greater number of therapeutic properties because it uses the peel of the leaf, which cannot be used in Aloe Vera (Barbadensis) because the peel contains excessive Aloin.

Aloe Arborescens has a greater number of therapeutic properties because it uses the leaf peel, which contains a large number of medicinal nutrients, namely, Aloin in the recommended dose, an important laxative to eliminate constipation.

We highlight, for example, says Dr. Aldo Facetti (see Google):
 "As for the medicinal properties as a result of my analysis, I guarantee that Barbadensis, the most widely used by industry for the most amount of gel, has about 25% of the active substance against cancer, while Arborescens  owns 70%."
The Palatini Institute of Salzano, Venice, said:
 "The Arborescens is 200% richer in the medicinal properties of Barbadensis."

Dr. Raquel Teixeira - Center for Biotechnology and Fine Chemistry, Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Porto, Portugal, says:
Aloe Barbadensis, better known as Aloe Vera, is perhaps the plant with the most products on the market.
In fact, there are extraordinary characteristics in this plant, but when compared to Aloe Arborescens it loses qualities.
Aloe Arborescens presents the components that Aloe Vera has, but in higher concentrations which makes Aloe Arborescens a plant with characteristics to be explored in the industry.

Concluding these endorsed statements, let's see a large difference in health ingredients provide by these varieties of Aloe:
