Rite Aid Aloe Vera Sunscreen May Not Contain Any Aloe At All

Rite Aid allegedly is misleading consumers to believe that their Renewal After Sunscreen contains aloe vera yet, that is not the case. 

A class action was filed against Rite Aid for falsely advertising their Renewal After Sunscreen product after a test, conducted by a California law firm, revealed that there was no actual aloe vera in the ingredients.  The sample of Renewal After Sun Gel contained no acemannan, a nutrient found in the inner part of aloe vera leaves which provides most of the benefits offered by the plant  According to the International Aloe Science Council, “[p]roducts that do not contain Acemannan are not considered to be true aloe vera.”

The front label contains the words “with aloe” highlighted inside a green field. Below that appears a stylized representation of a green plant leaf. On the back of the bottle, the ingredient list shows “Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder” among several other non-aloe ingredients.
