Thank you, I am currently using optiphen at the cooling stage, would I need to up the percentage if using the plant gel or am i safe to use the same amount as if it were water I was using?

Aloe is harder to preserve. The only way to know if your preservative is working is to get it tested. The Sage Script Institute does basic testing at a reasonable price.

You're welcome. Aloe in soap is nice.
