When we talk about aloe it's just an abbreviation of aloe vera. If you find both Aloe and Aloe Vera in different products, we advise you take a look at the ingredients in the composition. The highest percentage of aloe vera there is in a product the better, this is why we advise you to either use an aloe vera leaf directly or buy 99% aloe vera in health food shops.
Hope this helps
