Aloe Vera is well respected for its application as a moisturizing agent. It contains vitamin B complex, folic acid, vitamin C and carotene (a precursor of vitamin A). It is already being commercially used in soaps, creams, lotions, and other cosmetics. The Aloe Vera gel juice we sell is a thin liquid designed for application in manufacturing processes. It is safe for direct application to the skin, but should not be confused with a gel. It is also important to note that it can spoil and become contaminated with microorganisms if not properly stored and used in combination with a preservative system.
