100% Pure Aloe Vera Gel Review

100% Pure Aloe Vera Gel Review

 

If you’ve read my article about Aloe vera, you know that the plant has got excellent antifungal qualities and it can help you treat or prevent a vaginal yeast infection. If you haven’t got fresh Aloe vera leaves on hand, you’ll need a good quality Aloe vera gel to make your suppositories or to spread it around your vulva for instant relief from itching. The most important criteria you should follow when choosing the gel are:

Pure aloe vera gel reviews

 

  • The ingredients should be limited to Aloe, distilled water, and a natural preservative, such as tocopherol.

 

  • Avoid those that contain lidocaine, alcohol, or chemical preservatives.

 

There’s a great choice of Aloe vera gels on the market. They are beautifully packaged, and claim to be 99.75% or even 100% pure, natural Aloe vera. Many of them have excellent reviews, but when you read the label, you’ll find ingredients you wouldn’t expect in all-natural products, such as Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Xanthan, Ascorbic Acid, Potassium sorbate, all with proven toxic effect on human body. So whenever you’re looking for a 100% natural product, make sure you read the ingredient list.

 

After a lot of research about the toxicity of different ingredients, I came up with a list of Aloe vera gels that you can safely use, because they really are what they say they are: 100% natural, chemical free. Have a look:

 

Aubrey Organics Pure Aloe Vera Gel

 

Ingredients:

Aubrey Organics Pure Aloe Vera 4 oz Gel

 

  • Aloe vera leaf juice, grapefruit extract, guar gum, vitamin E – All of them are organic, natural and safe.

 

Additional Info:

 

  • It’s not as thick as most Aloe vera gels, it’s got a watery texture, which can be either an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on what you like

 

  • Because of lack of preservatives, the manufacturer recommends refrigerating after opening for best results

 

Price:

 

 

 

100% Pure Aloe Vera Gel by Roots

 

Ingredients:

Pure Aloe Vera Gel by Roots

 

  • Aloe vera and rose water (however I think a gelling agent must have been used because Aloe vera is otherwise liquid, but it’s most probably a natural one, such as guar gum)

 

Additional Info:

 

  • The texture is thick

 

  • The manufacturer recommends keeping it in the fridge due to lack of preservatives. It should last anywhere between 6 months to a year, depending how often and for how long you take it out.

 

  • The smell is strong, probably due to rose water used to process Aloe vera

 

Price:

 

 

To make the most of antifungal properties of Aloe vera, you can use Aloe vera gel for a vaginal yeast infection by applying it on your vulva to reduce itching, or by making coconut oil and Aloe vera suppositories and inserting them overnight. You can find instructions for making your own suppositories in my article about using Aloe vera for yeast infections.

  • Thank you for this review, I had trouble finding a 100% natural aloe vera gel, even started thinking of planting my own plant! Thanks!

    • Hi Ella, using aloe vera pulp from your own plant is always the best option because aloe vera in the products I propose is diluted with other ingredients. So although the above aloe vera gels are 100% natural, they are not as potent as fresh aloe vera leaves.

  • Hi there,

    This was an interesting article to read, I found it very helpful!
    I didn’t know that pure Aloe Vera prevents or treat yeast infections until I came across your website.I have plenty of Aloe Vera in my garden and I use it for burns or itching. Would it be preferable to use the gel or the pure Aloe Vera right from the garden?
    Thank you for this excellent blog!

    • Hi Daniella, you’re lucky to have access to fresh aloe vera, it’s a fantastic home remedy! You can use it for vaginal yeast infection by making homemade suppositories, you’ll find the recipe here.

    Excellent article, thanks. Aloe vera is extremely popular here in South Africa, particularly in liquid form, taken as a drink to improve digestion and elimination. I believe it has many healing and purifying properties. I never thought of aloe vera for thrush, but now that you mention it, it makes sense. Amazing to hear it can give instant relief for itching. Do you think aloe would help internally for systemic candida as well?

    • Hi Lauren, thank you for commenting. Drinking aloe juice is recommended for systemic Candida, but always read the label to find sugar-free juice with as little additives as possible.

  • Interesting article on Aloe Vera gel. I did not know there were so many uses for it, including the uses you have listed. I have often thought of growing a plant in my house just to have the fresh leaves, but I am not really a houseplant person. I think I prefer the Aubrey Organics Pure Aloe Vera Gel as you mentioned the strong odor for the other recommendation. Thank you for the great information!
