For external use, Aloe Vera Gel spreads on quickly and penetrates deeply, leaving no stickiness.
Many companies manufacture aloe vera, but most products on the market have lost much of the plant’s original benefits due to overprocessing. Nature’s Sunshine’s Aloe Vera gel is processed in a special way to avoid the loss of essential vitamins, minerals and other constituents.
The leaf is filleted; then the green outer portion that contains aloin is removed, leaving the gel that remains in the leaf. The gel remains thick when the leaf is first cut, but after a few minutes, an enzymatic reaction causes it to become liquid and freely run out. It is this 100% pure liquid that Nature’s Sunshine collects.
Aloe Vera Gel is created by adding a gelling agent, Irish moss extract, to the juice.
