Aloe gel is a preparation that comes from the processing of the leaves of the Aloe plant. There are more than 4 00 varieties of Aloe plants, but usually Aloe Vera or Aloe arborescens are used, which have roughly the same qualities.
Many products are obtained from the aloe plant; the main ones are the juice, derived from the only liquid extracted, the gel, obtained from the leaf, therefore from juice and pulp, and the total extract of aloe, deriving from the extraction of both parts, liquid and fiber.
Aloe Gel is obtained from the central part of fresh leaves. The extraction of the best quality gel is carried out a few minutes after cutting the leaves and without the use of chemical solvents or high temperatures: the active components of the aloe are subject to a rapid degradation due to oxidation and temperature.
The appearance of the aloe gel is colorless, and is odorless. Storage should be done at low temperatures and in sterile containers, to avoid contamination and degradation due to endogenous and exogenous bacteria.
