Aloe Vera Liquid- Aloe Vera liquid is thick when the Aloe leaf is first cut, but after a few minutes, an enzymatic reaction causes it to become liquid. It is the consistency of water and is often used to replace water in lotion and soap recipes. Aloe Vera Gel is reputed to be an excellent moisturizer.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Tracy! I'm so glad you love our Aloe Vera Liquid! The shelf life for Aloe Vera Liquid is up to 1 year from the date of manufacture. In general, our products are within the first month of their shelf life when shipped and, as such, should be good for nearly a year after delivery! I will email you personally to discuss this further.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Priscilla! I'm so glad you like the aloe vera liquid! Because aloe vera liquid is used as a water replacement, we would recommend adding a preservative to prevent mold and bacteria growth. Optiphen would work great in your lotion. It is used at .5-1.5% of your recipe. You can read more in the Talk It Out Tuesday: Preservatives post. I'll be emailing you personally to talk more!
