@MarkBroussard Hi Mark , so many thanks . I read this study earlier . This study also described so many benifits of Alovera including healing and curing though I mentioned only cosmetics criteria of Alovera. ” Results of a number of clinical trials suggest that Aloe vera is positively indicated in the treatment of skin disorders. A trial of wound healing management after the full-faced dermabrasion of patients with acne vulgaris demonstrated that the saturation of a standard polyethylene wound gel dressing with Aloe vera significantly reduced time to reepithelization compared to use of the standard dressing alone (Fulton 1990). In a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial of Aloe vera or placebo cream in 60 patients with chronic psoriasis, the cure rate in the Aloe vera group was 83% (with no relapses at 12 months of follow-up) compared to only 7% in the placebo group (Syed et al. 1996 ” . When we use something in cosmetics we consider it’s skin benifits, we do not use it as an active ingredients of drug. Though Alovera has many healing benifits but these are not necessarily need for cosmetics. I just tried to mention it’s cosmetics benifits.
@I don’t know if it is just in Australia but you can use Aloe powder extract to increase the organic percent. We do that with surfactants as well and they sell surfactants like decyl glucoside with Aloe in the available water.
@Microformulation, @crytsabel, I don’t know if it is just in
Australia but you can use Aloe powder extract to increase the organic
percent. We do that with surfactants as well and they also sell
surfactants like decyl glucoside with Aloe in the available water. As
you would know it has been hard to formulate a large organic surfactant
content until this trick was allowed by the certifiers, but still
usually to about 70% organic certification and that is it. In saying
that, you can also use Chamomile, coconut etc powder extract, it doesn’t
just have to be Aloe.
Crystabel sorry that
I thought you were the author of said paper. I actually did think about
that many years ago, actually when I was at uni and we used to do
chemistry experiments that had a biological component in it. It was a
marine chemistry class and we were looking at synthesis of coral and
other marine species like seaweeds etc. The pure chemists had no idea
what was happening and didn’t know the differences in biological
classification, like phylum down to genus and species.
since coming on to this site I have realised that we are still learning
and if that was a problem for them I am sure they would have taught
themselves all about the biological aspects already. And yes so I do get
a bit passionate as they help out a lot of start ups that otherwise
would have no place to go to which all come back to @Perry which we
thank everyday!!Sometimes this site keeps me sane…..
