Re: does anyone know where i can buy aloe vera gel?

You could try asking for it at an Apotheke and/or a Drogerie.

There are some products that contain aloe vera gel in the suntan/sunscreen section of Migros or Coop, but I've never seen one here that contains only pure aloe vera.

I bought a pure aloe vera gel online once from a U.S. store, and even in the U.S. it can be hard to find the pure gel.

Good luck!

Can't find Google Aloe Vera, Odile.
Would you mind giving me a direct link to it, and one for buying brown sugar and maybe even bathtowels in Switzerland.

Re: does anyone know where i can buy aloe vera gel?

BTW in my part of the world, bathtowels are NOT called 'serviettes de bain' (well they are 400m on the other side of the border)- but 'linges de bain'
A dishcloth is a 'patte à relaver' (not 'un torchon') and a floorcloth 'une panosse' (and not 'une serpillère')

Told you before, our small grocery shop in the village sells the best Belgian dark brown moist sugar ever. I can get you some anytime...and bring it over

Buy an aloe vera plant. Break off the leaves and squeeze the bejeezus out of them.

Don't ask me where to buy* an aloe vera plant. That is the topic for a new thread.

Love that product - you can also eat it when having an upset stomac.

Most others contain only water and almost no aloe vera juice. I've tried other ones and hated them. Might be a lot cheaper to buy the same product in the US.
