Nano Vera ingredientsGold as a moisturizer

The terms "moisturizer" (something that adds moisture) and "emollient" (something that softens), are sometimes used interchangeably, as they describe different effects of these agents on the skin. However, the term emollient is most often used to describe single ingredients, whereas moisturizer describes finished products.

Emollients are substances that soften and soothe the skin. They are used to correct dryness and scaling of the skin. They are a key component in the manufacture of lipstick, lotions, and other cosmetic products.

Preservatives

A freshly prepared aloe vera can be spoiled within a few hours at room temperature. While inside an intact leaf of the plant aloe vera will remain sterile, aloe vera producers always have a hard time preserving the gel without losing its properties.

There are therefor small amounts of preservatives in InfiniteAloe Gold.

It has been determined to be beneficial to use these preservatives compared to pasteurize the product and loose the potency of all natural ingredients, including the master organic Aloe Barbadensis.

Each ingredient and the volume of it is balanced against other ingredients to compose a highly functional formula called InfiniteAloe Gold®.
