: : Hi, I am a novice Aloe fanatic..... I cannot find any books on stabilzing Aloe gel, I am told that if not done within 4 hours of cut, it no longer has any affect.

Thanks Newt

I still haven't found any substantial literature “need to visit the library”, but out of desperation I visited my local pharmacy (drug store). Here is his advice.

10 ml Pure Aloe Gel (cold press - no aloin from green skin layer)
1 x Ascorbic Acid tablet ground very fine (vitamin C)
80 ml Pure Aqueous (water) cream
Mix and seal in air & light tight container.
Store in refrigerator.

Can be used on all sorts of skin problems, e.g. sunburn, dry tired looking skin.
He even suggested I could use this for my Staffie’s dry skin.

Shelf life +- 2 weeks, in refrigerator +- 6 weeks

If you source any other recipes / advice, please post them for me
