Made From Earth Aloe Vera Products

Our line of organic skincare essentials contain the highest possible levels of certified organic ingredients and fruits. We have searched the entire USA for ingredients that meet our earth-friendly requirements and are hand-selected to provide you with exceptional skincare. You will find our ingredients listed prominently on our products and throughout this website. No catchy phrases or deceptive marketing – our ingredients speak for themselves.

I was incredibly lucky to have been given the opportunity to try some Aloe products from Made From Earth to help my eczema - I can't wait to see the results as the very kind Stergios told me these products have helped many people with eczema prone skin. Made From Earth products are organic, natural, vegan and cruelty-free!

Contains essential fatty acids and antioxidants to prevent skin damage and cleanse your skin. This lemongrass soap is a citrus blast with an herbal tea undertone. The aroma is designed to sedating the nervous system for soothing headaches and aiding relaxation.

I love a great smelling bar of soap! This one is so cute and smells so good, I didn't even want to use it! I must say I had absolutely no idea of what scent to expect - I wasn't even sure what was Lemongrass exactly before googling it! 

The scent is very pleasant yet subtle. The main aroma is citrusy - sweet and fresh - but the hint of tea prevents it from being too overpowering. In fact, I would have love for the perfume to linger on my body after a shower, but it didn't.

It lathers amazingly well!

My only complaint is that the soap is very small for the price (I can't find the quantity on the website and it's not written on the label), even though solid soaps tend to get used up less quickly than shower gels - not to mention this one produces a lot of foam, so I'm sure it will last quite a while!

Made from Earth soaps are handmade fresh with USDA Certified Organic ingredients. These blends produce a healthy lather and leave your skin soft and supple (I didn't really notice my skin being softer but it sure didn't feel dry!)

Our best seller! This signature series organic Aloe and Jojoba Nut Creme Therapy contains highly concentrated amounts of Aloe Vera and Rooibos Tea leaves. Rooibos is a powerful antioxidant while the Jojoba nut provides anti-bacteria and preservative properties. Our custom formula of Aloe juice and Jojoba Nut oil create a powerful creme that attacks free radicals and limits their damaging effect on your skin.

This Aloe Vera Skin Treatment should be used for healing the skin from the effects of daily sun exposure. It is the most potent and natural form of aloe vera you can buy in a jar. Deeply moisturizes skin, while the aloe releases enzymes and natural vitamins into your skin. Treatment is recommended for use two to three times per week.

When I received these products, I didn't notice that the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment was in the "Face Treatment" section of the website, and because both products are pH balanced for face & body applications, I used them both on my body and on my face alternatively.

The Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy comes in a simple bottle which makes it a little hard to get the product out - I would have preferred a pump dispenser (especially for the price). The Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment comes in a little jar, which is less hygienical - who cares, as your hands are supposed to be clean when you come out of the shower, aren't they? - but easier to use.

I have found them to be pretty similar, also there's a slight difference in the texture. The Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy is less watery than the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment, but it's a little runnier... strange, isn't it?

Here's a look at them, side by side (Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy on the left and the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment on the right):

L - R : Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy and Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment

Both have light textures that are quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving a gorgeous sweet smell behind. I would have preferred them to be thicker as I feel they could be even more moisturizing, but they do the job well anyway.

I love how my skin is left pleasantly perfumed and smooth after applying those lotions. I have noticed a slight improvement on the red patches of itchy and sensitive eczema-prone skin on my body, although it's maybe a little too soon to tell how it will work in the long term.

Made from Earth recommends keeping both aloe products in the refrigerator for a "cooling" effect on the skin, as well as increasing the shelf life of the product.

    I like the packaging of these products, they do sound really nice.
    Would they be worth the splurge?

  14. @Rosamond Kim : We had some aloe vera plant at home before too, don't know what happened to it though? I would use it as a moisturizer sometime (:

    @TaYgAn : Hmmm well I don't know, aloe vear is sure amazing for your skin, my only complain is the packaging of the Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy, I mean, for this price, I guess I was expecting something better than a plain bottle that you can buy at a dollar store and apply a sticker on it...

  15. I just awarded your blog with the Versatile Blogger award. check out my post for details- http://seventhingsbeauty.blogspot.com/2011/10/versatile-blogger-award.html

  16. Oooh sounds great! I love the smell of lemongrass :D
    I also have eczema but I think I have found something that works fairly well, and that is Eucerin lotions.

  17. Hi Gaby! I hope all is well with you :)
    Thanks so much for recommending my blog to the Diane Lai skincare company. I really appreciate it!
    Lemongrass has a really distinct smell. A lot of Thai food has lemongrass in it so I know about it quite a bit....I bet the lemongrass tea soap did smell so nice if you didn't want to use it since it smelt so good :)
    I hope the lotions work out for your eczema Gaby! you'll have to do an update for us in a few weeks if you keep up on it and see some results.
