Of more concern is the addition of the perservatives/antimicrobials DMDM Hydantoin and Diazolidinyl Urea; these chemicals work by releasing Formaldehyde into the product, which kills any microbes and is great for the product but not so great for you, because Formaldehyde is a potent carcinogen as well as an irritant that can cause allergic reactions.
Although this product is only applied topically, and the concentration of Formaldehyde is hopefully too low to cause irritation and cancer, that is not known. I would be interested to know the exact concentrations of each ingredient in the final product.
Good things: this is otherwise a decent product that dries very quickly, and makes a non-greasy Hair gel and skin moisturizer. I have mixed fine loose glitter into it to make cheap glitter gel, that would actually stay on my skin and hair instead of the glitter falling right off, like when you mix glitter with regular lotion.
Bad things: the formaldehyde-producing preservatives; you would think a company by the name of Fruit of the Earth should actually use some earth-friendly preservatives.Read more ›
Let me first start off by saying that I do agree with the other reviewers of this product who point out that Fruit of the Earth's label is (perhaps) a bit misleading. The advertising may lead some folks to believe the product is 100% pure aloe vera gel... Well, close, but not quite... 100% "gel" indeed it is, but there are other additives in the mix.
Pure aloe vera gel usually has some light natural coloration (a yellowish tint) and a light, distinct, scent... and if it is of the pure organic nature, the color (and smell) may vary a little from batch to batch. My first indication that Fruit of the Earth's product was not actually "pure" was its perfectly clear color.
As for the concerns over chemical agents contained in this product, I personally think there might be a little bit of over-reaction in that regard. This is a fine product in my honest opinion. Reviewer "Torben's" comments, I think, are excellent (with reference to the additives used in this product). If you have convictions that prohibit you from using products with any un-natural chemical ingredients, that is understandable and there are other excellent alternatives (such as Lily of the Desert, which is 99% pure and organic, but also much more expensive).
While I prefer using organic products as well, I confess that - sometimes - I settle for the cheap stuff too and this really deserves a good review because it's a GREAT product. I use it often on my face and scalp and as a hair gel (it doesn't flake off or leave hair feeling greasy). I also use it as a shaving gel sometimes. It has improved the quality and appearance of my skin and reduced my psoriasis problems on the scalp considerably!Read more ›
So I started finding herbal/non-chemical solutions which could take time but cure acne from its root.
I started using paste/mask of
-- Neem Powder + Lemon juice
-- Mango Turmeric powder + Neem powder + Lemon juice
-- Mango Turmeric powder + Sandalwood powder + Honey + Milk (Optional)
I applied mask twice/thrice a week, along with this Aloe Vera gel which I use every night without fail. At night, I wash my face with neem soap bar and extensively apply a good layer of this gel and leave it overnight. The results are showing up real good. The breakouts have stopped and now there is hardly any sign of new acne buildups. Though the old scars exists, they are showing signs of fading out.
One of my Indian friend recommended Vicco Turmeric Cream as daily face cream. So I am using it with nightly Aloe treatment since a month now and am happy to see the results.
I gave 4 stars to this product because it is doing the job which expensive chemical products failed to do. Once all my old marks are gone I would update my review and rating as well.
This is coming from my experience. I am not a doctor but just want others to benefit.
