When you are in need of topical relief from burns, sunburns, bug bites, etc. you reach for an ointment which will stop the pain and begin the healing process. Aloe Vera is the #1 choice around the world, either from the actual plant, or for most consumers, in its gel form sold in stores. In fact, the sale of Aloe Vera products is worth $13Billion, globally every year. And, upon purchase, you expect it to work as advertised.

In recent years numerous complaints of clinically tested Aloe Vera bottled treatment samples have proven to contained little or NO Aloe Vera, although listed in the ingredients. In some cases, these treatments contained an unlisted ingredient; Propylene Glycol - the same thing you put in your cars radiator to keep it from freezing-up in the winter months.

ConsumerLabs, and others, have done research showing some products claiming 100% Aloe Vera contained 0%. Some of the defective products include:

  • Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel,
  • CVS Aftersun Aloe Vera,
  • Target Up & Up Aloe Vera Gel,
  • Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Refreshing Aloe,
  • Walgreens Advanced Hand Sanitizer with Aloe,
  • Walgreens Aloe Gel 0.5% Lidocaine Reliever,
  • Walgreens Aloe Vera Body Gel.
