Infinite Aloe

We get asked all the time if our Skin Cream is the same as Infinite Aloe. Infinite Aloe is marketed by a company called ULTIMATE CREATIONS. Ultimate Creations used to market and sell Corium 21. They sold Corium 21 in many outlets such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and in many other parts of the United States. A few years ago they made up their own Aloe product. Very similar but not the same formula. Corium 21 came before Infinite Aloe, and Infinite Aloe is NOT the new Corium 21.

Growing Aloe in Your Area

The following is information on growing the aloe vera plant in specific areas of the United States. Although the aloe plant is fun to grow, remember that using Corium 21 is different than using the gel directly from the plant because it's been proven that no matter how good any one ingredient is for you - bodies are complex and no one thing can possibly handle all of the body's needs.

Pure aloe vera is the predominant ingredient in Corium 21. It should be noted, however, that Corium 21 also includes the proper balance of nutrients, vitamins, and emollients that your body thrives on. If you were to take one vitamin or nutrient to the exclusion of all others, no matter how good it is, you would still be deficient in other nutrients.

Corium 21 is formulated to penetrate deeply into the skin. It goes on smoothly and leaves no sticky, greasy or oily residue. However, the plant is attractive and, as mentioned above, can be fun to grow. The convenience and full benefit of this wonderful nutrient is available from Corium 21 healing cream.
