Organic Gel (x1) - 100% pure and natural cold pressed. No harmful chemicals and no added color, fragrance or alcohol.
Ingredients: Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Xanthan Gum (for gel consistency), Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate (a food preservative at <.01%), Sodium Benzoate
Hand sanitizer tips:
Since this is almost pure aloe vera, alcohol percentages over 90% tend to coagulate the aloe.
Recommended alcohol dilution is 70%-85%.
Our isopropyl alcohol is 99.9%, cut with water to achieve a mixture that is 70%-85%.
Hand sanitizer recipe:
10 parts 85% alcohol
3 parts organic aloe vera gel
Mix slowly, do not use a whisk or electric beater.
If mixed too vigorously, the aloe can coagulate (it is harmless and can be removed, but will thin the mix).
In the above ratio, the final product may be a little thin and may work better as a spray.
To thicken: add 1tsp xanthan gum to the 3oz of aloe vera and mix thoroughly before adding to the alcohol.
Work in small batches, as I do not know if the ratios change in larger batches.
Add approx. 10 drops of your preferred essential oils for fragrance.
