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.
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.
