Hi, to all ladies in the house. You know why am excited? Today’s tutorial/guide is going to be very useful to many. That is why I am particularly happy to introduce to you today’s guide in no time. Though, there are some people who don’t use Gel because of their religion believe while there are some who detest using gel for personal reasons. What ever might be your reason; you may have to think twice today; because this post promises to be education, healthy and rich as usual.
I honestly do not know how to start; maybe we should start by what is a gel? A gel is formed when the particles cross-link, using chemical bonds, into a three dimensional network that behaves like a solid, even though it is mostly liquid.
Gels Can Be Classified Into Two:
These are those gels which posses the property of elasticity i.e. they change to solid mass on dehydration which can again be converted into gel by addition of water followed by heating and cooling. When they are placed in contact with water they absorb water and swell. This property is known as inhibitions. Examples of Elastic gels are gelatin, agar, starch etc.
These are those gels which do not possess the property of elasticity i.e. they change to solid mass on dehydration which becomes rigid and cannot be converted into the original form by heating with water. They do not show the phenomenon of inhibitions. Best example of this gel is silicon acid.
Although, this is not our area of interest today. I know what a gel is but today we are going to make an Aloe Vera Gel. Aloe Vera gel is used for so many things in the cosmetic and food processing industries. this is because Aloe Vera has proven to be very medicinal and helpful in the maintenance of vitality and good health. Aloe Vera gel can be taken raw on its own or mixed with other syrups and it’s in very high demand by the cosmetic industries that use it in their production processes.
Advantages of Aloe Vera
- Aloe Vera improves skin and help prevent wrinkles

- Aloe Vera can also be use to treat mouth ulcers
- Aloe Vera accelerates the healing of burns
- Aloe Vera helps in Detoxification
There are lots of un-tap business opportunities with Aloe Vera as it can also be exported if you can produce in large quantity, there are companies that buy large quantities of Aloe Vera gel. You can even start growing your own aloe Vera and rake all the profit into your account. Why all these talk about Aloe Vera? This is simply because Aloe Vera is our main or major ingredient in today’s production.

Simple Approach To Sell Your Aloe Vera Gel
There are truly different ways by which a product can be sold but some are better than others in some situation. That is why I believe everybody is brilliant in his/her own territory.
After the production try and give out some to people around you. This will enable them to test your product thereby giving you the feedback necessary for improvement before finally hitting the market. These are your first set of marketers.
The mistake that some people make is that they want to start BIG with their very first product. often times; they end up being frustrated because the market is not actually the way they projected.
