Our 99% pure aloe vera gel is extracted from the leaves of the spikey, green aloe plants native to tropical and subtropical climates such as Southern Europe and Northern Africa. We don’t add any colouring, fragrances or parabens making our pure aloe vera gel safe for all skin types.
Rich in nutrients, aloe gel can be applied topically to ease various skin conditions or used to enrich your homemade beauty products.
What is aloe vera gel good for?
Studies have shown that aloe vera gel can be effective in healing superficial skin damage such as mild burns, dry skin and sunburn.
Containing antioxidants, enzymes and vitamins A and C, aloe vera gel is considered highly anti-inflammatory which makes it good for applying to acne and dry skin. The enzymes also mean aloe gel can help exfoliate.
How to use aloe vera gel?
Our 99% pure aloe gel can be used directly on the skin or added to homemade skincare products for a nutrient and vitamin boost.
When using to relieve mild burns or sunburn, apply aloe vera 2-3 times a day. For anything more serious always seek an appropriate medical opinion.
It’s easy to make your own homemade aloe vera facial moisturiser by combining the gel in equal parts with a carrier oil like our sweet almond oil or our gorgeous jojoba oil. Then add a small amount of vitamin E oil and some of your favourite essential oils; give it a good shake and apply.
Is aloe vera juice and gel the same thing?
No. Aloe vera gel comes from the inside of aloe leaves and is an odorless, clear gooey liquid. Aloe vera juice, which is often consumed orally as a natural health tonic, is derived from the outer parts of the leaf from which it seeps as a yellow liquid with a bitter taste.
If you have your own aloe plants and are considering creating your own juice to take orally, always be sure to pay due diligence to the potential risks and health complications that may be associated with doing so and speak to a health professional first.
