A team of French researchers (CNRS and Sorbonne University) and Americans have shed light on this disturbing phenomenon. ” We find this same filter in the Classic Cream.
Aloe vera liquid soap contains dangerous ingredients
One might think that this soap based on this plant, known for its virtues, is harmless. Aloe vera contains 98% water. The remaining 2% are nutrients: vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, minerals. This plant is therefore recommended for all skin types, whether dry, oily, damaged, or sensitive… Inevitably, seeing the soap it contains makes you want to buy it.
