Studies have found that CVS’s Aftersun Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel contains ingredients that are commonly used to de-ice aircraft and produce cement. Propylene glycol, which is not even listed in the ingredients, is used in airplane de-icing applications, is sold as antifreeze for cars, trucks, RVs, and boats, and is a major ingredient in the liquid nicotine and cartridges used in electronic cigarettes. Triethanolamine is employed in the grinding of limestone, quartz, and Portland cement. In fact, testing has showed that the CVS Aloe Product contains no Acemannan, the key active ingredient of aloe.
According to tests conducted by ConsumerLab.com, another Aloe Product – Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera 100% Gel— actually contains little or no aloe vera or key aloe compounds, causing many who value aloe as a moisturizing and healing therapy to be misled.
Fruit of the Earth has asserted that its Aloe Vera 100% Gel is indeed 100% gel, with “minimal amounts” of “incidental ingredients” such as preservatives and stabilizers in “to insure potency and efficacy.” In fact, research showed that the “incidental amounts” – including a synthetic polymer used as a thickening agent – are essentially the only ingredients, undermining the company’s claims.
If you or someone you know purchased CVS Aftersun Aloe Vera Moisturizing Gel, Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera 100% Gel, or any other Aloe Product that you believe contains misrepresentations in its aloe content on its labeling and packaging, you may be entitled to damages.
