Our Community Trade organic aloe vera is 100% organic, preservative-free concentrated aloe vera gel for our products. Within 6 hours of harvest, our aloe leaves have been packed up and sent to the processing plant, so that the precious aloe gel can extracted while the leaves are still fresh and juicy. Within the tough, rubbery exterior of the aloe plant lies a soft center that gives our products a naturally soothing power. A natural survivor, the aloe plant manages to thrive in harshest terrains. This is all thanks to its hidden ability to create a moisture-rich gel during the rainy season, helping it to endure long periods of drought.
