Aloe Vera Powder (200X) is well known for its beneficial properties and it contains minerals (Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Chromium , Selenium), vitamins (A, B, C, E, folic acid), amino acids and active components including enzymes and polysaccharides. It is widely used in skin care products, sunscreen products, and many other cosmetic products due to its beneficial properties.
100g makes around 20L of liquid, making this an extremely cost effective and long lasting product.
The reconstituted gel is ideal as a soothing, moisturising emulsifier, and an alternative to carrier oils for use with essential oil dilution. Research suggests that the polysaccharides (sugars) in the gel have anti-itching and anti-inflammatory properties that can assist wound healing.

The 200X concentrate can be reconstituted with water in a ratio of 1:199 (powder to water) to obtain aloe vera liquid (stable with the addition of further preservative) or it can also be added directly to formulations at very low dose. Powder has a longer shelf life than liquid aloe vera making it more convenient to buy in bulk when making small batches of products.
Quick recipes to get you started!
There are plenty of recipes available (thank you google) but here are my two most useful and simple recipes to get you started. I reconstitute at least 1-2 cups aloe vera liquid and make a few preparations at once, as it can be tricky measuring out 0.05g at a time! Eg: Instead of 5g powder in 99.5g water you can make up 2.5g powder in 500g (497.5 to be precise).
I still have the occasional breakout, especially in summer. Having this spray handy after showering clears it up fast, while keeping my skin smooth and hydrated.
Steep a chamomile tea bag in a cup of boiled water, allow to cool. In a 100ml spray bottle, add 3 drops tea tree, 3 drops lavender and 1 drop lemon essential oils. Add 30ml reconstituted aloe vera liquid and swirl to combine. Top with 10 ml witch hazel and 50 ml cooled tea. Swirl to combine and store in the fridge up to 1 month. After showering spritz over face and body for a soothing, refreshing feeling.
Natural Hand Sanitiser
So simple, so fast, so cheap!
Combine 3 tbsp reconstituted aloe vera with 1 tbsp distilled water, 2 drops rubbing alcohol (vodka works too) 1 drop each of lemon, eucalyptus, rosemary and tea tree essential oils. Add to a small squeeze bottle.
