Aloin is a member of substances called anthraquinones, which are found in the sap
of Aloe Vera.
It is one of twelve anthraquinones but it is the most well known one. These
substances on their own are powerful laxatives. Previously they were sold as a
compound called bitter aloes and because of their strong smell and bitter taste they
were used to paint on children’s nails to stop them biting them.
Despite what is often written about them there is no real evidence to support the fact
that they may be harmful in pregnancy (causing abortion) or that they are
carcinogenic when ingested over a long period of time.
