Cape Aloe is a plant that is related to aloe vera, but contains several times the amount of aloin as aloe vera. It also requires no fertilizers or pesticides and is sustainably harvested. The outer leaves of Cape Aloe contain the healing jelly that is used to work miracles on the skin. Whether it's a rash, acne, or sunburn, this topical gel will help stop the pain and inflammation.
I've been using this on my skin ever since I came back from vacation and I haven't had to use so much moisturizer or lotion. It's a great alternative to sunscreen, since I don't use sunscreen at all. If you're wondering why, I recommend reading this article on sunscreen dangers.
The Cape Aloe Topical Healing Gel has a distinct smell that is very familiar, but I can't seem to pinpoint exactly what it is. What comes to mind is grapefruit for some reason. It doesn't smell bad at all, though, and once you apply it to the skin, the scent goes away.
Ingredients include: 99% Cape Aloe, xanthum gum (natural thickener), potassium sorbate (mild preservative), and sodium benzoate (mild preservative).
