I want to start using Aloe in some of my skincare products, in the first place for the family members who want me to add it.
Myself, I'm not convinced yet about its properties, because I can't find evidence about it being so great and I only use actives in my own products based on irrefutable evidence.
Since Aloe contains mostly water I was thinking of changing the whole % of water to Aloe Vera juice/gel.
If I put this in a O/W moisturizer, can I heat it up to about 60-70C, to make it the same temperature as the emulsifiers/oil phase? Would it destroy too many of its, supposedly, good properties?
If so, would it be better to add it in a lower % to the cooling phase or in a cold process serum?
