Description

Aloe Vera Powder are prepared from the inner portion of aloe leaf which is removed with minimal disruption to the Aloin layer. This is then further processed to remove pulp and fiber, the juice is then pasteurised and concentrated utilising low temperature evaporation. 
It is then freeze dried to produce a product without additional additives or preservatives. Freeze drying acts to preserve most of the long chain polysaccharides found in the fresh leaf. One gram of Aloe Vera Powder is the equivalent of 200g of fresh aloe juice.

Please note: this product will not produce a gel when reconstituted. Aloe Gel does not exist in nature and can only be made with the addition of a gelling agent for example Xanthan Gum or Carbopol.

Uses

Aloe is well know for it moisturising and soothing properties. It is commonly used to soothe dry, irritated skin and was traditionally applied to inflamed or burnt skin.

Care

This product is anhydrous and should be stored with care. As soon as it is exposed to the air it will begin to absorb moisture so it must be kept in and air tight container. Once reconstituted it should immediately be preserved as the reconstituted juice is a very favourable environment for microbial growth.

This product is intended for external use only
