    I'm looking for aloe vera gel green in color. Please tell which store to find it. I have seen beauticians use this and skin feels wonderful.

    aloe vera gel is not green, pman. it is white. and even the organic gel that is available is almost transparent unless something else is added to it.

    You can buy the plant from home depot or lowes and grow in your house. Its very easy to grow and can grow in a pot.

    You can also try some garden centers, in the greenhouse section. It is still cold unless you live in the South/California. You should be able to find it once the weather warms up. I see the plant sometimes at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.

    OP - Are you talking about real gel of aloe vera plant in green color? Its never green.

    In parlor, you might have seen packaged gel that might be store bought then. No one uses real stuff. Even when labelled 'made from real plant', has some chemicals added to it.

    I, once, bought for sun-burns for walmart. That was gel in green color and not for beautifying the face. Only for sun burns purpose.

    Why do not you buy & grow real plant and cut gel out of leaf? Its needs hot temps and sun. Or grocery stores like market-basket stores sell 1 big leaf ( imported from mexico) for 1$.

    Yes you girls are right that the gel in green color might be for sun burns. I saw @ target today. I will instead look for a plant.

    Try to search on online stores. I would like to suggest you to use pure aloe vera natural gel which is transparent in colour. Don't try chemical mixed products.
