HOW DO YOU KNOW IF AN ALOE GEL IS CHEMICAL FREE?
Beware of companies calling their aloe gel ‘natural’ and ‘pure’, because this does not mean that the gel is free of chemical preservatives. Just check the ingredients on the label!
Even so-called ‘organic aloe gels’ can contain preservatives and other additives:- if you read the label carefully, you will see that it says something like this: Ingredients: Organic Aloe Gel, citric acid, sodium benzoate, etc.
Also beware of companies calling their product ‘aloe vera gel’, when it is in fact, a juice, and not a jelly texture.
The innermost part of the leaf, renders a clear jelly, which is what we sell. It is thick gel, and will stick to your face, exactly where you want it to.
Whereas extraction of the fuller parts of the leaf, renders a liquid, runny ‘juice’, which is far cheaper to produce. It will not stick to your face, as it has the texture of water.

I was honoured to be featured in dermstore’s blog:
“More Than Just a Juice Craze: What Aloe Vera Can Do for Your Skin and Hair”, in which I was quoted as saying:
“Scientists have found over 200 nutritional substances in aloe barbadensis leaves,” says beauty and aromatherapy expert Janice Rosenthal, owner of Garden of Essences. “These include proteolytic enzymes that stimulate fibroblast cells in our skin tissue that manufacture collagen and elastin, which in turn restore damaged skin and keep it firm.”
Because of its cell-renewing properties, aloe vera is known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, scars and even stretch marks. It’s also a potent antioxidant, thanks to its high concentration of vitamins A, C and E—all essential in preventing visible signs of aging and hair damage and neutralizing free radicals. Its antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory benefits also make it effective in treating acne and other skin and scalp irritations.
Worried the summer heat might do a number on your skin and hair? Fret no more. According to Rosenthal, aloe vera comes loaded with “moisture-boosting” nutrients and natural sugars that are responsible for “locking moisture into the skin and hair shaft, alleviating dryness, preventing brittle hair and taming frizz.”
Saintlbeau.com also quoted my research on Aloe Vera:
“Beauty and Fragrance Specialist Janice Rosenthal, owner of Garden of Essences, said: “Scientists have found more than 200 nutrients in aloe vera leaves, including proteolytic enzymes that stimulate cellular cells. Fibers in skin tissue create collagen and elastin, thereby restoring damaged skin.“
