Default Jason 98% Aloe Vera Gel

I went to the drug store and they didn't have any FOTE AVG, so I got a small bottle of Jason AVG. Is this safe? Here are the ingredients:

Aloe vera leaf gel, purified water, vegetable glycerin, allantoin, polysorbate 20, panthenol, potassium carbomer, arginine, natural menthol, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, chlorophyllin-copper complex, fragrance oil blend.

If it's not CG friendly I can just use it as a moisturizer.

Sorry, not an ingredients expert, but just wanted to chime in that I had a horrible time finding fote avg, too. I looked everywhere. Finally found some at target in the travel-size section.

I found a bottle of FOTE AVG that I had bought a few years ago for a sun burn. Unfortunately I can't remember where I got it. I'll check out Target when I go to the states sometime before fall.

It is CG, but I found that the menthol & alcohol in this was horribly drying on my hair.

Thanks, I think I'll just use it as a skin moisturizer then. I got a small bottle so it was only $5 anyway.

I just bought some FOTE AVG at Ulta, if that helps anyone.
