Due to Coronavirus, buying online has become an increased necessity for many products. I have used 99.9% pure Aloe Vera Gel for many years and originally bought it from my local Holland & Barrett store. About a year ago, I noticed the packaging had changed, although the assistant assured me the contents were the same. Fortunately I had my reading glasses to hand and after reading the microscopic print on the lower back of the tube, it made clear that this was not the pure bioactive product that I was familiar with.
Eventually, I found two online suppliers of this wonderful product which alternately kept me well stocked — until recently. My latest order arrived in August and although the image online was still indicating the bioactive premium product, on arrival not only was the packaging different, but so too the content which was a cheaper mix of inferior parts of the plant plus added chemicals; however the price remained the same. Ignoring the pleas of the supplier that it was just a change of packaging, I returned the order and sought the verbal attention of my second supplier, making clear that if the Aloe Vera Gel’s packaging had changed and it no longer stated pure 99.9% Bioactive Gel, I didn’t want it. I didn’t receive a response so assumed the worst.
Determined to overcome the impasse, I researched growers and producers of Aloe Vera products in the Canary Isles who had a website where I could read for myself the quality of their products. The copied statement below gave me assurance and confidence that I’d made the right decision; choosing a husband & wife team producing a premium product with honesty and integrity. A supply of their top quality Gel should arrive any day now. Yippee!
