Aloe vera gel is much like the first aid for your skin. Be it dryness, irritation, or sunburn, aloe vera gel has over 75 bioactive compounds to calm and restore your skin and hair.
But not all aloe vera gels are created equal. There are thousands of aloe vera gels laden with additives that in no way resemble the properties of pure aloe vera. So while shopping for aloe gels, you should be able to distinguish between the pure and diluted ones to get the most benefits of aloe vera.
How Is Pure Aloe Vera Gel Made?
The fresh aloe Vera gel or pulp extracted from aloe plants has a very short shelf life( less than 7 days in fact). And the texture too is extremely slimy making it difficult to use. Hence it needs to be combined with the right ingredients to get a spreadable consistency and long shelf life.
To make pure aloe vera gel, the clear liquid or pulp is extracted from the fleshy part of the leaf. And then it is filtered and combined with a thickening agent and a preservative to get the gel-like texture and long shelf-life.
How To Tell If Your Aloe Vera Gel Is Pure
Some manufacturers even mix powdered aloe vera extract with water to sell it aloe vera gel. But pure aloe vera gel is made from at least 95% aloe vera juice.
- It should not have any aroma
Not only are synthetic fragrances unnecessary, but they can also increase the risk of skin irritation. And since aloe vera is often used for soothing skin, it should not have any such added additives.
