Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I take aloe?
Aloe vera naturally contains 200 biologically-active components including polysaccharides, vitamins, enzymes and minerals that work harmoniously together to support overall health. The polysaccharides found in aloe vera have been known to support a healthy digestive system by helping the body maintain a healthy stomach pH and supporting the growth of healthy bacteria. Aloe vera is the most studied plant in the natural products industry. Some studies have shown that aloe can help support a healthy immune system, improve absorption of other vitamins, minerals, and herbs, and support general wellness.
Why should I use Lily of the Desert products?
As the #1 seller of aloe in the natural products industry, Lily of the Desert separates itself in 3 key ways:
- They grow, process, and manufacture their own certified, organically-grown aloe vera. This is rare in the aloe vera industry.
- Lily of the Desert products contain the fullest range of aloe polysaccharides and are enriched with Aloesorb™, allowing them to offer products with the highest efficacy of aloe vera benefits.
- They are the only natural product company to have “Gold Standard” clinical studies conducted on our products to back up any claims.
What is the difference between Whole Leaf and Inner Fillet Products / Juice and Gel Products / Traditional and Preservative Free products?
Whole Leaf products contain the entire leaf with the aloin content filtered down to a safe level of less than 1 part per million. They contain both high and low molecular weight polysaccharides. The Inner Fillet products contain only the inner gel-like portion of the leaf and contain a concentration of high molecular weight polysaccharides.
When Aloesorb™ was added to Lily of the Desert products, its high molecular weight aloe polysaccharides combined with the broad range of both low and high molecular polysaccharides found in their whole leaf products slightly outperformed the inner fillet products for whole health benefits. The only difference between the juices and gels is consistency. They have the same benefits.
Since 1971, Lily of the Desert has made what they call their regular juices and gels with the food grade preservative Potassium Sorbate, which is found in most aloe products. In 2005, Lily of the Desert was the first company to develop technology that allows them to make USDA certified organic preservative free juice that still has all 200 biologically-active components found naturally in aloe. Recently, their preservative free products have become their best-selling items.
How long will Lily of the Desert products last when opened and placed in the refrigerator? What is the shelf life of an un-opened product?
Lily of the Desert regular juices and gels that contain .1% Potassium Sorbate as a preservative will last up to 5- 6 months once opened and placed in the refrigerator. Their preservative free juices will last a minimum of 45-60 days once opened and placed in the refrigerator.
All Lily of the Desert products have a two and half year shelf life when unopened.
How should I take the juice/gel?
It is important to note that aloe vera works differently for everyone so Lily of the Desert recommends starting out slowly. Their suggested serving size is 2 oz (4 Tbsp.) and you can take up to 8 oz a day. If you are taking aloe for digestive reasons, take a serving 15-30 minutes prior to your meals. Both the juices and gels can be mixed with any other cool liquid. It is safe to take aloe vera on a daily basis.
What is Aloin / Aloe Latex / Anthraquinones / Yellow Sap?
Between the outer rind of the aloe leaf and the inner fillet lies the yellow sap (aloe latex) that contain anthraquinones (aloin). When taken in extremely high doses, aloin can be harmful. Unfiltered aloe contains approx. 10,000 parts per million of aloin. Lily of the Desert aloe products contain a safe level of less than 1 part per million of aloin. They are safe to use daily.
Will taking aloe cause a laxative effect?
With Lily of the Desert’s low content of aloin (less than 1 part per million), the aloe vera should help maintain a healthy digestive system and support healthy regularity.
How much aloe vera is in Lily of the Desert juices/gels and is it organic?
All Lily of the Desert products are made using their certified organic aloe vera that they grow themselves. The regular and preservative free juices contain 99.7% aloe vera even as the regular gels contain 99.5%. All Lily of the Desert products contain their certified organically-grown aloe vera.
Are Lily of the Desert products Gluten Free, Kosher, and cruelty free?
Our products do not contain any gluten. Some of our products are certified Kosher by Kehilla. We are cruelty free.
Are Lily of the Desert products cold pressed, cold processed or pasteurized?
Any aloe vera product available on the market is going to be cold pressed. There is actually no such thing as cold processed in the case of aloe products. It is the law that all aloe plants must be heat treated in order to remove the harmful bacteria on the plant. If an aloe product claims to be “raw,” then it must have a disclaimer on the label. If there is not a disclaimer, then heat has been applied someday. Many companies use batch pasteurization, which essentially cooks the aloe vera, damaging any biological components. In order to retain the 200 biologically-active components Lily of the Desert utilizes flash pasteurization, applying heat for a limited amount of time, in order to provide the highest efficacy and aloe benefits on the market.
Can I give aloe vera to my children or pets? Can I take it even as pregnant?
Lily of the Desert’s recommended dosage is for adults aged 13 and over. Children under the age of 13 and women who are pregnant should consult a physician. In regards to pets, you can use aloe vera topically for skin issues, however when taken internally, you need to take into consideration that overdosing might cause a laxative effect. For pregnant women it is suggested that you speak with your physician/pharmacist about taking aloe vera as it has the potential of causing a laxative effect.
Is it safe to take aloe vera with my supplements/medications/herbs, etc.?
Aloe vera is a great daily supplement to maintain overall good health and digestion and will assist the benefits of supplements, herbs and probiotics. If you are taking prescribed medication it is recommended that you contact your physician or pharmacist prior to using aloe vera.
Why does your aloe taste bitter even as others taste like water?
The natural flavor of aloe vera has a bitter, citrus-like taste to it. Lily of the Desert Preservative Free products have a more vegetable-like taste. Aloe products that taste like water have been fractionally-distilled, where the solid portions of the plants with the biologically active components have been removed. All true aloe products have a taste. You can mix Lily of the Desert aloe vera with other liquids to improve flavor without harming the potency.

Benefits of Aloe Vera Juices and Gels
Studies of a generic aloe commissioned by the International Aloe Science Council confirm that taking daily vitamin supplements with aloe vera juice instead of water can improve the bioavailability (absorption) of the supplements. One study showed an increase of over 204% absorption of Vitamin C & E when using generic aloe gel (fillet). Another study showed an increase of 210% absorption of Vitamin C and 180% of Vitamin B12 when using generic aloe juice (fillet). Generic whole leaf juice resulted in 140% increase of Vitamin C and 160% increased absorption of vitamin B12. However, independent studies also show that absorption of Vitamin C increases by 2000% when taken with Lily of the Desert brand aloe vera.
Aloe vera can promote healthier skin. Aloe researchers also report that aloe can hydrate through three epidermal layers of the skin when used topically. Aloe provides the benefit of driving nutrients and other constituents into the deeper layers of the skin, which promotes epidermal health. Aloe vera can be used to:
- Provide hydration to the skin
- Promote an attractive, refreshed and healthy appearance
- Reduce the appearance of damaged skin
- Cool and soothe the skin after prolonged sun exposure
- Most aloe topical products at retail stores contain less than 1% – 10% aloe vera in creams, lotions, and other body products. Studies have shown that a minimum of 30% concentration of aloe is necessary to receive the benefits of aloe. Lily of the Desert topical products contain up to 99% organic aloe vera.
