It all depends on the concentration and purity of the Aloe vera! That is why it is vital to differentiate between, juice, concentrate, and Aloe vera extract.
For logistic and cost-saving reasons, most other cosmetic manufacturers use concentrated powder (dehydrated gel) to produce Aloe vera products, as it’s easy and cost-effective to process. The extract is produced by simply adding water to the dehydrated gel. The disadvantage is that it usually only contains less than 10% of the plant’s properties.
The juice of the Aloe vera is the compressed pulp rich in polysaccharide, vitamins and minerals, from which the Aloin has been eliminated, maintaing all the plant’s beneficial components. Aloin is found in the thin layer that separates the pulp from the leaf. Aloin a substance that can cause undesired side effects.
All Nectar Maya’s Aloe vera is produced from the juice made of the hand-filleted leaves. In comparison with other Aloe vera producers, Nectar Maya’s Aloe plants are filleted by hand instead of machines to avoid contaminating the juice with Aloin.
