The Aloe plant produces two substances: gel and natural latex. These substances are commonly used for medicines and medical products. Found in the inner part of the Aloe plant leaf, we find Aloe gel, a clear, jelly-like substance found in products like Flexitol Heel Balm. Aloe latex comes from just under the plant’s skin, and is yellow in color. Some Aloe products contain both gel and latex, including products like Flexitol Eczema Cream and Flexitol Nail Revitalizer.
