CoVera™ DRY

INCI Name: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (200 fold concentrate)
Product Code: 0370
CAS #: 85507-69-3 (8001-97-6 is for the plant)
EINECS: 287-390-8
Brand: CoVera™

CoVera™ Dry is derived from plantation-grown Aloe barbadensis Miller. This plant, a member of the lily family, is commonly called Aloe Vera or true Aloe. CoVera™ Dry represents a 199-fold concentration of the gel (the natural juice obtained from the parenchyma of hand-filleted fresh leaves). Allowing for variations owing to climatic and seasonal growing conditions, the natural juice has been found by various researchers to contain assorted sugars, mucopolysaccharides, amino acids, minerals, sterols, sapogenins, enzymes, fatty acids, and hydroquinone-based compounds.

This powder form of CoVera™ is designed for use in manufacture of various personal care, health and pharmaceutical products where the high moisture level of the single strength (1:1) liquid form can present formulation problems. CoVera™ Dry can be readily solubilized by adding the product at a 1:199 ratio by weight to well-agitated water. Because the product is irradiated to ensure microbiological integrity during storage and contains no preservative, reconstituted solutions should be used promptly or protected with a suitable preservative system.

Keep CoVera™ Dry tightly sealed and store in a cool, dry place (preferably 70°F or below). It is an unpreserved natural product and should be handled accordingly. Stock should be used promptly (and inventories rotated) to assure freshness.
