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 used in soaps, creams, lotions, and other cosmetics.

This Aloe Vera gel juice is a thin liquid that I use in my Candy Cane Mouthwash. It is safe for direct application to the skin, but should not be confused with a gel. It is also important to note that like all natural juices without preservatives, Aloe is unstable. It can spoil and become contaminated with microorganisms if not properly stored and used in combination with essentials oils, grapefruit seed extract or Vitamin E.

Common Uses: Aloe vera is a natural antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and moisturizing agent commonly known as a "First Aid" plant. Apply to minor burns, sunburns and surface cuts (but not deep wounds). In Candy Cane mouth wash and toothpastes, aloe soothes and helps heal sensitive gum tissue. Aloe is used in dentistry in a variety of applications: for wound healing, to reduce pain and speed healing of canker sores, and to treat the site of tooth extractions.

Shelf Life:6 months unopened. Please ensure that product is kept cool and clean so as to extend the shelf life.
