We use aloe vera gel from the market that contains safe preservatives in this soothing gel to extend its shelf life. However, it can go stale easily because the water content of this soothing cream is very high. Therefore, shift a small quantity of this gel in a completely dry air tight container to be kept on bathroom shelf for using as a soothing cream for sensitive skin. Keep the rest of cream in the refrigerator. Refill your room temperature supplies weekly. On the other hand, if you want to use this cream to soothe sunburn or itching, burning, insect bite etc, you can directly apply this cream from refrigerator.
