This is a 200:1 powdered aloe which means that to re-constitute it so that it is a single strength Aloe Liquid you need to add only 0.5g of
Aloe Powder to 99.5g of Water (0.5% to 99.5%). The Aloe Powder will completely dissolve into water but will not form a gel. This is because the
pulverising and powder processing breaks up the complex sugar chains into smaller chain lengths that can no longer form a gel. This does not impact
in the performance of the Aloe in your product though as the minerals and moisturising properties remain.
To thicken your Aloe Water we recommend adding something like Xanthan Gum, Carrageenan, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose or Carbomer. These thickeners will swell
in water to form a gel-like base that can then be used as a facial serum base or just as a soothing Aloe Gel. Otherwise we do sell a ready-made
In addition to thickning the Aloe Water the water will also need preserving. We have a range of preservatives available to suit a wide range of ingredient
philosophies and product asperations
Use Level: Typically re-constituted at 0.5% in water but can be used at any level between 0.05-5%.
Solubility: Fully water soluble with no residue.
Forms a colourless, water-thin solution when re-hydrated.
Compatibility: Generally compatible with most other actives, can be too salty for some emulsions and can cause creams to become destabilised
in some cases. We do recommend stability testing when replacing regular water for reconstituted aloe water in a formula.
