When it comes to ubiquitous beauty ingredients, we’d argue that aloe is second only to water. This succulent’s emollient extract, aloe vera, is a staple in skincare formulas because of its healing and hydrating properties. But what most people don’t realize is that aloe vera isn’t the only beneficial essence available from this botanical.

Aloe ferox gel is an extract from rarer kinds of aloe plants, and it offers the extra benefit of boosting cell turnover, which is why SpaRitual has included it in their Handprint Hydrating Hand Salve. This mostly-organic masterpiece is an oasis for the driest of hands, providing not only intensive moisture, but also anti-aging effects.

Aloe ferox isn’t the only uncommon extract in Handprint. It’s joined by marula oil, griffonia and honeybush, all found in the driest areas Africa, to boost the formula’s regenerative, soothing and redness-reducing abilities.

A few more familiar ingredients, like shea butter and orange oil, round it out to create a quenching fix for thirsty, threatening-to-crack skin.
