aloe vera gel & plastic bottles!

Hi everyone

This is my first post & I'm hoping someone can help......

Just to give you a quick background...... I'm in the process of developing products to be used on the skin for a variety of reasons.

I'm looking for aloe vera gel - as close to the actual inner leaf gel (squeezed straight from the leaf!) that I can get, at a reasonable price. I've not been having much luck on the net so if anyone can recommend somewhere that they know of that would be great!

I'm also looking for empty plastic bottles with flip-lids. I need a small amount at first but with a view to becoming a regular buyer.... does anyone have any suggestions?

I will also be looking for a logo designer in the near future so will definitely keep this forum in mind, I've seen some really impressive designs!

Sorry, I'm rambling on a bit now LOL! It would be lovely to hear from anyone with any suggestions though! Thanks :-)

aloe gel is quite expensive, you can get big tubs of the juice (100% aloe) quite cheap but how they turn it into gel I'm unsure.

Hi Adrian,

Thanks a lot for your offer of help. I do have a couple of questions that you might be able to help me with so it would be brilliant if I could take you up on that!

I had a look at your website & I would REALLY appreciate calling on your business experience.

Would it be OK for me to contact you directly via one of the email addresses on your site, or I'll post my own email here if you prefer?

I look forward to hearing from you!
