We’ve searched for a long time to find the right aloe vera gel for our products. Finally found a “pourable” gel, naturally thickened with alginate, a seaweed derivative rather than the plasticizing polymers found in many gels and preserved with food grade preservatives (vitamin C, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate).
Please note this is NOT a fixed oil. If adding to creams and lotions it must be calculated as part of the water phase.
Aloe Vera has been proven to be an effective treatment for skin lesions and burns. It is a highly effective moisturizer and an anti-inflammatory. Recent research has proven that aloe plus essential oils is a more effective acne synergy than the use of either the aloe or the essential oils (diluted in a carrier oil) alone. We highly recommend the use of Aloe Vera Gel in any skin treatment. Topical uses of Aloe Vera Gel may include acne, sunburn, frostbite (it appears to stimulate blood circulation), shingles, alleviating the effects of radiation treatment, psoriasis, preventing scarring, rosacea, warts, wrinkles from aging, and eczema. For thousands of years aloe has been used as a “cure-all.” Some sources say that aloe vera was the secret of Cleopatra’s complexion.
