Aloe Ferox Allergy
by: Sue

Thank you for sharing your experience. It's always better to gain more insight as yours is quite an unusual circumstance. Our bodies really are wonderful organisms and the more we heighten our intuition to tune in to their responses the better we will be.
Our research into the topical application of Aloe Ferox has showed no negative experiences until now, but perhaps in time your body will let go of its intolerance?
Unfortunately Aloe Ferox is a key ingredient in all our products so I can't offer you another one to try.

After several years of using pure aloe Vera gel on may face 1-2 times a day, I developed an intolerance to it. My face started to feel a little tight for a few weeks and then turned bright red and felt like it was burning. I stopped using it for a week and my skin seemed to go back to normal. I tried it again to disastrous results. It took 2 weeks for the burning to stop and 5 weeks for the redness to start to go down. 8 weeks later my skin is still a little red and hypersensitive.

After figuring out the reaction was due to the aloe Vera, I discovered that using aloe Vera gel daily for a long period of time can lead to an allergic reaction or intolerance.

I patch tested some of the spf 30 and had a reaction. Fortunately I only put it on a small area. I guess it's back to UV hats for a while.

We do not know the answer to this, but as a guess I would say that you are quite likely to react to Aloe Ferox in the same way as Aloe Vera.
Can you perhaps share what the nature of your allergic reaction symptoms are, as I am very interested to look into this in more depth?
