I am always on the hunt for some great aloe vera gels! I just want something that is as natural as possible. I use aloe vera gel mostly for my scalp when I want to add more volume to my hair! However this is not a post about that (I will definitely write hair post one day), this post will be about the Aloe Vera Gel from Naissance. I ordered this gel because I have been looking for aloe vera gel without Benzyl Alcohol and with as few extra ingredients as possible.
I thought I had hit the jackpot with this Aloe Vera Gel from Naissance the ingredients are phenoxyethanol, vegetable glycerine, Carbomer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium hydroxide and Dinatrium EDTA.
One problem I find with the ingredients is that they are only written on the German amazon webpage, not on the UK webpage, not on their own webpage and not on the jar! So I can't really be sure that these are the right ingredients!
Not to many ingredients and they didn't look that bad at first glance. However, when I first opened the jar the stench of toothpaste came from the Aloe Vera Gel. They say that the gel should be without fragrances, colours, parabens or sulphates and that is just wrong. It still smells like toothpaste (nasty chemical minty) even though I have almost finished the jar!
The second thing is that this gel has the strangest texture, it doesn't feel like real Aloe Vera Gel, it feels too chemical and fake. It is hart to explain the texture but somehow it just feels wrong.
I will definitely NOT buy another jar from Naissance (or eNaissance) or anything else from them since I do not trust their company any more!
If you know about a good Aloe Vera Gel please let me know so I can order some :)
