The Gel Base was originally conceived as a water blanket to help burns, this gel features an agent derived from fermented mushrooms. The result is tremendous water holding capacity. Floral Waters can be added but so can oils to give the texture of a water gel but the visual of a cream. This is an incredibly versatile product in which essential oils disperse readily. Contains sorbitol for moisturising. The gel penetrates quickly and is ideal for all healing and medical applications.
