I have been using Aloe Vera for several years now. My skin is very sensitive to deodorants and my friend suggested that I try using Aloe Vera gel. She's a registered nurse and very knowledgeable, so I took her suggestion. She was right on target with the information that she gave me. I use the Aloe Vera gel as a deodorant and it works better than any of the many deodorants that I have tried. No sting, no sweat, no underarm odor. I know that there are many other uses for this natural plant, such as applying it to burns, etc. Since I prefer using products which has no chemicals, the Fruit Of The Earth Aloe Vera Gel is perfect for me.
