Aloe Vera, or also known as the ‘lily of the desert’, has been around for centuries, even millennials. Aloe Vera is probably the most popular succulent people seek for its cosmetic and medicinal properties. When ingested, it can boost immunity and aid in digestion. When applied topically on the skin, it can have several benefits. Now, before we get into what the top 10 Korean Aloe Vera skin care products are, let me brief you on why Aloe Vera is such a popular skincare ingredient.
Skincare Benefits of Aloe Vera
Consider Aloe Vera as a multi-functional character. Different brands put Aloe Vera in different skin care categories for different benefits. You may have seen it in suncare or after suncare products for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Or mask sheets due to its moisturizing benefits.
You may choose to use a product that contains aloe for obvious reasons. Maybe because it is effective in soothing and moisturizing your skin. But did you know it also has healing properties? Aloe Vera doesn’t just feel cool to the touch and feel soothing because of its gel texture. It actually contains an anti-inflammatory compound that promotes healing and pain relief for sunburns and frostbites! This compound promotes tissue healing and aids skin cell regeneration.
Additionally, Aloe Vera helps fight skin aging. It contains Vitamin A, C, and E and promotes the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. All these properties play important roles in keeping skin youthful. Vitamin A is known to help speed up healing of the skin, C and E are powerful antioxidants to help reduce skin damage from external factors, such as UV rays. Collagen is what maintains your skin’s elasticity and hyaluronic acid is vital for retaining moisture in the skin to prevent wrinkles. And the list goes on!
This superfood has super skincare characteristics – no wonder it’s been around for so long and is still high in demand all around the world. So are Korean Aloe Vera products that much higher in demand? Because if there’s one aspect of K-beauty you should keep in mind when considering adding it to your business is that they are high in quality and effectiveness, but much lower in cost than high-end brands.
So let’s get into the top 10 Korean Aloe Vera skin care products to stock up on.

5. IsNtree – Aloe Soothing Gel [Fresh Type]
IsNtree Aloe Soothing Gel comes in two types, Fresh and Moisture. As mentioned earlier, Aloe Vera can be used for various benefits in various types of products. Reviews for the Fresh type show that it is better for healing rather than hydrating (while the moisture type is also thicker in texture and more for hydrating). Some reviews suggest this product is better than others only containing Aloe, because it contains other active ingredients, such as Soy Isoflavones and Amino Acids for better skin care effects.
6. Beausta – Aloe Vera Soothing Gel

Not only does it prevent damage from UV with its powerful sunscreening agent, but it also soothes and moisturizes skin to keep it in the best condition while you play in the sun. It doesn’t leave any white cast, and it applies lightly, almost like a gel that absorbs easily into the skin. This product is an investment you don’t want to miss out on. Even if for personal use.
